The eyes of the world are on the Central African Republic this week as Pope Francis makes his first visit to this war-torn country.
Dr. Augustin Hibaile, a key Grace Brethren leader in the country, reported: “…We pray for God’s miracle in the hearts of our people to bring peace in CAR. Lot of people on the streets to welcome the Pope.
“Among his visits, he will speak to the Catholics just after his audience with the President of the country, than he will speak to the Protestants at the Bangui Evangelical School of Theology.
“Tomorrow the Pope will go to the Mosque to speak to the Islamic community for peace before he returns to Vatican.”
Dr. Hibaile’s photos and report was posted on Facebook and shared here with permission. The Central African Republic is the home to several thousand Grace Brethren congregations.
