We wish the Christian community in The Gambia the very best today as they engage in the holy time of Lent. It is a time of prayer and reflection in the run up to the sacred celebration of Easter.
Lent will last for 40 days and 40 nights and we pray that God will hear all the prayers and receive all the sacrifices offered by our Christian brothers and sisters during that time.
On Easter Sunday the Christian community here in The Gambia will celebrate the resurrection but until that time they must share in the sacrifice of God for his people.
Once again we give praise that we in The Gambia can live in such harmony and be a shining beacon of tolerance to all the peoples of the world.
May God shower his blessings on all of us.
