The vote on February 14th passed peaceably, but there has been some protest about the counting of the ballots. Click this to get the story.
Here are two missionary colleagues, visiting with Former Prime Minister Faustin Touadera. He asked John and Charlie to read the bible and pray with him. If the count stands, he is the new president of CAR. Thank you for praying for peaceful elections, now for peace for the country.
John and Charlie’s mission had just sent a truck full of medicines and supplies to the east in CAR last week, but it didn’t get very far. It was hijacked and the cargo entirely looted, the driver and passengers were beaten and even their shoes were taken. The truck returned empty, and their hospital in the far east is now hurting for those meds.
With all the challenges CAR presents at this time, like this incident, whoever the president is, we need to pray for him.
