I awoke this morning praising God for how He is working in this tiny country, the smallest land country in all of Africa. Today is inauguration day in The Gambia, exactly 5 years ago today this is what I posted on Facebook “Keep praying for The Gambia and political transitions. I just heard some encouraging updates and I am waiting for confirmation from further sources.” Inauguration day looked very different 5 years ago, the uncertainty and the tension were palpable. 5 years ago God intervened in a major way in the political process and today as I sit here praying and praising God I am yet again struck by His sovereignty. It appears that today’s celebration will be calm and peaceful and for that I am thankful. No matter what occurs today and in the future of this country and this entire world God is in control and I am so grateful for that. Thank you for your ongoing prayers.
