We have just received an unconfirmed report that there’s been a vehicle accident near Yaloke in the Central African Republic involving a number of pastors who were enroute to Bangui for the upcoming Grace Brethren pastor’s conference which begins Tuesday.
According to the report, the pastors were from the Paoua District and one pastor has been killed and 12 hospitalized. One is in critical condition in the Bangui hospital.
This is the pastor’s conference in which Joel Richards (Modesto, CA) and Jason Carmean (Lexington, OH) will be participating.
Please pray regarding the situation–we’ll have updates and verification as soon as information is available.
Update Monday morning: The GBIM website identifies the pastor who was killed as Pastor Thomas Yanguedji of the Paoua 1 District.
