The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles

[Flag] The Republic of Liberia is a heavily forested coastal state in West Africa
adjoining Sierra Leone, Guinea and Cote d'Ivoire.

The American Colonization Society purchased the area in the first half of the 19th century as a settlement for freed slaves from the southern United States. For the next 160 years their descendants were the leaders of the nation. Their rule ended with a coup in 1980. An unstable military government, massive corruption and repression followed, bringing a revolution in 1989. War engulfed the country, with countless inter-tribal killings. Presently, three armies contend for power.

Though founded as a Christian state, there are numerous indigenous peoples which
do not yet have a viable church planting movement.
