Many Grace Brethren people have been praying for the national church conference just concluded in the Central African Republic, with one of the main agenda items being the election of a president who will serve the union of churches for the next six years.
Dr. Francois Ngoumape sent the following report this morning:
“I just came from the end of the national conference. The atmosphere of the conference was very, very good, The Moderator is very sharp and wise.
“One of the main things happening in this conference is the renewal [election] of the fellowship board. Pastor Mboi Andre come to be elected, and Bavon Jonas and Zoungai Robert were elected too.”
Ngoumape indicated that Mboi Andre will replace the former president, Dr. Pierre Yougouda, who concluded his term according to the constitution. Speaking of Yougouda, Ngoumape said, “He gave a very good speech in the end, that is very encouraging to everyone here. He talked highly about Pastor Mboi and Bavon Jonas as good collaborators. He really gave satisfaction to every one of the 1,600 people who came.”
He concluded, “Praise the Lord for your faithful prayer for this conference and for the new board. I really feel the Holy Spirit worked among us. May the glory be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
