Some 500 African youths attended from various parts of the country. Dr. Francois Ngoumape was the primary organizer and speaker, but teams of young people and pastors from USA and France also participated.
Dan O’Deens, pastor of Gateway church in Parkesburg, PA, sent this photo of the youths holding up copies of excerpts from Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life book which had been translated into the Sango language.
O’Deens said, “It was a pleasure to partner with GBIM and the National Pastors in the CAR in getting the Purpose Driven Life Book translated into Sango.
“What a thrill it was to hear Dr. Ngoumape teach through this material. The most amazing thing to me was that each conference theme and objective was able to spread through the entire Country of CAR. There were 23 districts represented and each district chose 15 youth to attend the conference.”
