Bangui, Central African Republic:
Despite chaos, confusion, and turmoil due to a coup d’état in CAR during the initial stages of their church planting project, two mobile churches have been planted on two university campuses, and 24 Bible Club Fellowships, which continue to increase in attendance, have been established around the capital city.
Earlier this year, Project Leader Makela Yamale recruited 42 leaders and 300 student volunteers to catch the vision of planting mobile churches on university campuses in Bangui. He anointed them as they launched strategic on-campus outreaches. Since then, these young leaders have learned how to lead small groups, conduct Bible classes, preach the Gospel, teach about baptism, counsel others, and make disciples.
Recently, this “Church Planting on Campuses” project hosted outreaches that featured films such as “The Harvest,” and conducted “Worship Him” concerts, opening the door for major breakthroughs on the campuses. This Foursquare Foundation grant funded project has witnessed some 1,650 people make first time decisions to follow Christ, and many are involved in ongoing discipleship classes. God is certainly on the move, and He is building His church along the way!
Evangelism Prayer Focus: Please pray for the project team and the young leaders. Pray that new believers will continue attending discipleship classes. And please pray for peace in CAR as the government works toward reconciliation.
