Brief Profile

The Equatorial Guineans, also known as the Fang and having a Bantu origin, are a people from Equatorial Guinea, a small country on the west coast of Africa which struck oil in 1995. Despite having the highest wealth ranking of any African country, a large proportion of the population still lives in poverty. According to the African Development Bank, while oil and gas revenues have led to improvements in basic infrastructure in recent years, there has been no significant improvement in living conditions for the population.

They speak Fang, which has two dialects that are mutually intelligible. The dialects of Fang are also spoken in parts of neighboring Cameroon (Bulu) and Gabon. These dialects, while still intelligible, are more distinct.

The majority adhere to Roman Catholicism while a minority are Protestants. A small percentage follows Islam (mainly Sunni). The remaining practise Animism, Bahá'í Faith, and other beliefs.

Prayer Points

  • Pray as evangelicals encounter Equatorial Guineans that that will intentionally become friends with them in order to share Christ.
  • Pray that God will provide for the physical needs of the Equatorial Guineans.
