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.

Dear prayer supporters,
Yesterday, the Prime Minister of the CAR appointed by the President has resigned from his position as requested by the Political Peace Agreement in Khartoum. 
Now, the President has to nominate a new Prime Minister asap. The Prime Minister will than put together his Government with personalities from the Armed Groups as well as the civil society.
We appreciate your prayer for wisdom as the President of the country is seeking someone to take this highest leadership position in the country.

Dear supporters 

I had a good meeting with the President of our Parliament Tuesday to discuss the leadership seminar scheduled in the second half of March. He acknowledged all the efforts done by CIDEL since 13 years now and is eager to see the seminar happen. Pray that I will be joined by PLI instructors during that seminar. The exact dates will be communicated later. For those instructors willing to join, please keep your agenda from 15-30 of march free.
I am facilitating a workshop on the integration and harmonisation of the statutes of Ex-Combatants from the armed groups in CAR. I was requested by the Security Reform Sector of the UN and the national part to help coordinate the discussions that will bring us to submit a practical proposition to the Government at the end of this month. 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.
