Mboi Andre, president of the union of about 2,500 Grace Brethren churches in the Central African Republic, was the featured guest at the Thursday night Global Prayer Gathering at the Winona Lake (IN) Grace Brethren Church.
Andre, who is in the U.S. for reparative surgery to his right hand and wrist, asked specific prayer for wisdom as he leads the churches in the CAR and specifically for 18 evangelists currently working to win people to Christ and plant churches in the eastern regions of the CAR. Andre recounted current efforts to train evangelists and plant churches in four geographic regions of the eastern part of the CAR, where some 69 trained evangelists are now in ministry.
Andre has regained much of the finger and hand movement since the surgery and will be seen again by surgeons on April 28, just before he returns to Africa.

Kent, Jr., president emeritus of Grace College and Theological Seminary, who had Andre as a theology student as Kent taught both in America and in Africa.
