C.A.R.’s new President Touadera, sworn in

BBC reports: A former prime minister and maths professor in Central African Republic, Faustin-Archange Touadera, has been sworn in as president at a ceremony held at the national stadium in the capital, Bangui.

He promised to promote peace and to carry out his duties “without any ethnic bias” following his surprise victory in run-off elections last month.

Mr Touadera’s inauguration marks the last stage of the political transition aimed at ending a brutal conflict which broke out after rebels overthrew the government of Francois Bozize in 2013.

Prez TouaderaPlease pray for President Touadera.  Pray that he lead with wisdom, justice, and love.

About danforth

As Covenant missionaries, we are working with all the tribal groups of the Central African Republic (CAR) but are trying to give special attention to the Fulani, a Musxlim, cattle herding, and semi-nomadic people group. We live on an experimental/training farm, near a mission station which has a hospital plus bible and nursing schools. We are establishing relationships with the local people groups through compassion ministries; Roy through agriculture and Aleta through public health and visitation, in order, ultimately, to share the good news of Jesus the Messiah with them. CAR is one of the least developed countries in the world and is currently in continual crisis (since the coup in March 2013), so reaching out in compassion is key to reaching their hearts. Due to the ongoing conflict and resultant ethnic cleansing in CAR, we are crossing the border to interact with our Fulani contacts.
