Mboi Andre, who heads up the union of Grace Brethren churches in the Central African Republic (more than 2,000 Grace Brethren churches) recently sent these photos and this update to FGBC coordinator Tom Avey:
I send you my warmest greetings from Bambari in His precious name. I hope you are doing well and God is blessing your ministry there. I am doing well even though my arm did not consolidate [heal] well yet. I trust in God to heal me.
I send you the picture of the formation of the evangelists which took place in last September in Bambari. In the last day we took time to make the planning for their ministry in 2009.
The evangelists will be deployed in February, 2009, to plant 10 new churches in different places. Please pray for the project of 22 bikes which will help them in their ministry. Thank you very much for teaming with us in this noble ministry we are doing here in East.
