Gabon is one of a few countries where the equator passes through in Africa. Located on the west coast of Central Africa, Gabon is as unique as the name of the country. The name 'Gabon' comes from the name of the mouth of the river that was founded by a navigation officer from Portugal in 1472. The mouth of the river looked like a 'Gabao' (a coat with a hood) in Portuguese. He named the mouth of the river 'Gabao', which later became the origin of the name of the country. The country of Gabon is also unusual. Approximately 2% of the upper class of the country control most of the economic power. As seen on the street, the country is full of poverty and pain. Most of the people are dying of ignorance, poverty, and AIDS and others are dying of excessive possession they can handle. Two different pictures seem to be forced to fit each other.

Harmony in God's Love
Dr Cho's trip to Gabon was like an adventure. Since it was the first crusade in Western Africa, no one knew if it would be successful because Catholicism is like the national religion in Gabon since the country has accepted western culture through Portugal and has been controlled by France for a long time. It is true that we thought it nearly impossible to hold a Protestant crusade in a country like that. However, it turned out to be men's thinking. God wanted many people to receive the Gospel and life. Bongo Stadium in Libreville, the capital city of Gabon had a seating capacity of 45,000 people and it was packed. People were crying out for "Yonggi Cho". Dr. Cho was even swept along in the crowd and his attendants barely helped him escape from the crowd. The participants numbered 150,000 for the three- day crusade. The total population of the capital city is around 400,000. So we can say that one -tenth of the total population attended every day. The people of Gabon, whether rich or poor, danced and praised the Lord together. People who had been divided and considered each other coming from different worlds praised God together and created harmony.

"Gabon Has To Believe In Jesus"
Dr Cho was invited by the President of Ghana, Bongo during his crusade, which was very unusual. President Bongo who has been in control for the last 32 years welcomed Dr. Cho and his attendants, stressing his close relationship with our former President Jung Hee Park. At the reception, Dr Cho emphasized that Gabon has to believe in Jesus to be blessed. In fact, the Vice President of Gabon is a good Christian. Finding him praying passionately on the front row in every crusade, we saw him trying to live as a good Christian. The morning meeting in Gabon was held in a seminar room at the National Assembly. With the political and economic leaders of the society present, Dr Cho stressed that we need to find truth and freedom in God to be blessed. We've recently heard of news from Gabon. Some of the politicians have greatly changed.

Daily Bible
But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:

1 John  2:5
