The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
The Republic of Mozambique is located on the southeastern coast of
Africa. This unhappy land is the world's poorest country. Climatic
extremes of flooding and drought have
further impoverished the desperate
Mozambique became independent from Portugal in 1975 as a Marxist-
Leninist state after a long and bitter war. Independence was followed by
widespread rural devastation and a brutal guerrilla war. This, along with
with international pressure encouraged the government to end its
flirtation with Marxism in 1988. A multi-party
democracy was instituted in 1990.
A steady lessening of restrictions since
1990 has led to Mozambique having religious freedom for the first time
in its history. Mozambique has the largest concentration of
unreached peoples in Africa south of the equator.
