Brief Profile

Guinean people originated from Guinea, a country smaller than the US state of Oregon on the west coast of Africa. Guinea is bordered with Guinea-Bissau and Senegal to the north, with Mali and Côte d'Ivoire to the east, and with Liberia and Sierra Leone to the south. Guinean migration to North America has a long history with increasing numbers since the 1990s. They speak French, the official language of Guinea.

Music and dance is woven into the cultural fabric of Guinean people. The balélé is the most traditional dance: a traditional dance that the women usually take up at any ceremony or festival, usually accompanied by a musical group comprised of three or four men.

Guineans adhere to Christianity either as Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Baptists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists, or various other evangelical churches.

Prayer Points

  • Pray Guineans will find not just economic prosperity, but the riches of new life in Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for workers to be raised up to reap the harvest among Guineans who are more open to Christianity due to the changes in their lives.
  • Pray for the evangelical Guineans will engage and plant churches among other least people groups.
