The following update on the political situation in Chad, Africa, is taken from the latest e-newsletter of Love In Action International. For more information on this ministry, click on http://www.loveinactioninternational.org
Matthais Ezel reported that although the French military have given the okay for residents of N’Djamena to return to their homes, the situation remains very unpredictable and uncertain.
Grace Brethren International Missions (GBIM) coworkers remain for the time being in Cameroon. Reports from other missions and missionaries indicate that the majority of mission stations were relatively untouched with the exception of a few vehicles that were stolen.
Most of the missionaries serving in Chad were evacuated from the country. Some reports from missionaries indicate this was the worst fighting they had seen in the 40 years they have served in Chad.
Praise the Lord that the fighting has seemed to have subsided. Please pray for wisdom on the return of missionaries to Chad and for continued protection and faith for our fellow believers living in this country.
