Dear prayer supporters, 
 
Wisdom is greatly needed for those in positions of authority in my country. The Government put together in March 4th after the peace agreement in Karthoum/Sudan was denied by the armed groups who said that the government is not inclusive. Last week another peace talk gathered the Government and the 14 leaders of the armed groups in Addis Ababa/Ethiopia. The results of that meeting is a new Government published in March 22 with 38 members compared the 34 in March 4th. Many leaders from the Armed groups became members of the Government.
 
We are concerned because there is no disarmament done among those armed groups; We appreciate your prayers that God will change the hearts of those who are leading the country now. Pray that peace will come back and that all the armed groups will cease to kill the peaceful population.
 
God is giving me the opportunity to minister. Pray that God will grant me with wisdom as I continue to serve him among different leaders.
 
Pray also that God will allow me and my wife to visit the churches this year in the USA. Barb Wooler is willing to contact churches and friends to set a program for our visit if God provides. We want to present the ministry of CIDEL and Encompass during the visit.

Dear prayer supporters,

 
You have prayed for the new of God intervention in the change in the CAR Government after the peace agreement signed between the Government and the armed groups.
 
Yesterday a new Government of 35 Ministers appointed by the Prime Minister and the approval of the President was published. 18 former Ministers are still in the new Government over the 35. Representant of the Armed Groups are also included in the Inclusive Government.
 
Mr Maxime BALALOU, former Deputy of the Director of the Prime Minister cabinet is now appointed as the Minister Secretary of the Government. He is the President of the national prayer breakfast. Maxime has initiated the prayer breakfast after he was with the Prime Minister to the Berlin International Gathering (Prayer Breakfast  of the German Parliament) as I coordinated that encounter.
 
Continue to pray that the new government will demonstrate a good governance that will bring peace and reconciliation throughout the country.

Pray that God will grant me with wisdom and knowledge to show his grace among the politicians, military and all the participants to that strategic planning for peace in my country.

Dear prayer worriors
 
I want to thank you all for your continuous prayer support for my family, my ministry and my country. Although the UN Security Council did not release my country from the embargo that took place since 2014, the political dialogue for peace between the Government and the armed groups leaders in Sudan will end today with a signature of agreements for peace. The final signature will take place here in Bangui. We wait to know what is the content of the agreement concerning the requests of the armed groups have presented for Amnesty and getting in their charge the cabinet of Prime Minister in the Government. Those requests are not in favor of the population who are also requesting tolerance zero in the way the Government has to deal with the situation of injustice in the country. Please continue to pray that God will bring peace and security throughout my country. Only the prayer supports give me strenghts, wisdom and courage to keep doing what God call me to do among my people to raise up godly people for his kingdom. I sense the impact of the prayers in my life, the life of my family and my ministry.
 
Great opportunities are ahead of me this 2019 year. The leadership seminar CIDEL has had with the Catholic Priests and Sisters in January 16 th has an impact. I was invited later by the Director of a catholic seminar to train his students on why it is so important to train young Christian leaders on God's word. More requests will come from the Episcopalian Conference for more biblical input through our ethical leadership seminars.
 
I will be facilitating an important workshop on Security Sector Reform starting tomorrow to the end of February. The goal of that workshop is to come up with realistic proposal on how to integrate the ex-combatants who will go through Disarmment, Demobilization and Reintegration with adequate position/title in the military entities. I will act as a national facilitator together with an international facilitator from the UN office in New York. Please pray that God will use me in a manner that the participants to the workshop will see his work in me and through me and glorify his name. Pray that the final document from that workshop will be approved by the President of the State who has requested such workshop.  In the past I did not accept to be a consultant for the pre-DDR when I was asked to do by the UN (MINUSCA) as I was trained in Barcelona in DDR senior intensive course in 2013. Since they continue to get my help, I sense the necessity to accept the consultation and be the facilitator. I hope my background as a Police chaplain and a trained in DDR will be a support for the success of that consultation with the grace of God.
 
Tomorrow after I will have an audience with the President of the Parliament to present him the desire of CIDEL to help train the members of the Parliament on the Power of Character, the Prevention of corruption and other topics that will enhance their ability to do their legal work for the best of the country.  I will also encourage him to get an invitation of the German Parliament to participate to the 24th Berlin International Gathering (Prayer Breakfast) in June 4-8, 2019 which I have done in 2017 for the Prime Minister who came home with a new paradigm of governing in partnership with God. The result of the Prime Minister to the prayer breakfast in Germany was the start of the Prayer Breakfast in CAR since 2017. I was appointed by a German former member of the Parliament Honorable Rudolf Decker to be a link between their prayer breakfast with the leaders of my country since 2011 when I met him in Kinshasa, DRC during my leadership mission with Pointman Leadership Institute.
 
My prayer is that God will grant me good health and means to accomplish his will among those in positions of authority in my country and beyond our borders.
 
Thanks for your ministry in my life.

Dear Prayer Warriors, 
 
As the Africa Union, the United Nations are coordinating the political dialogue between the Government and the rebels groups in Khartoum/Sudan since January 24 till January 31, 2019,
 
Since the UN Security Council is discussing the issue of embargo on the CAR today,
 
Since we, citizen of the CAR want our army to protect us, we come to you again with the request of urgent prayers to the God who has changed the heart of King Cyrus to become a State man and act in favor of his people, to intervene among the members of the UN Security Council to release the embargo on my country.
 
I am confident that God will hear prayers of his children.
 
Thanks for standing beside us in time of sorrow, trial and human abuse of the dignity of mankind created with the image of God.
 
Pray also that the dialogue in Sudan will end with ceasefire and peace.
 
Together in Christ
Augustin
