EQUATORIAL GUINEA

A seminary student in Equatorial Guinea confided to a teacher that he was HIV-positive. The teacher directed him to Christian counseling and Western medicine for treatment, but he never went for fear of the shame and stigma. Instead, he is destined to die a slow and painful death.

The needs here are great and there is fertile soil for the gospel. The country has one of the highest rates of HIV in the world, one of the lowest life expectancies, and is saturated with practitioners of witchcraft. The legalism of the few existing churches prevents them from spreading a gospel of grace and mercy. We have come alongside a local evangelical seminary, teaching classes and mentoring students who are local pastors and church leaders. We also work with churches to start HIV/AIDS counseling and host medical clinics as outreach. Through theological education and medical/mercy ministries, we’re reaching out to people like this seminary student with the hope and compassion found only in Christ.
