Please continue to pray for the situation in the Central African Republic as armed conflict continues in many parts of the country. On May 24th, the United States State Department issued the following travel advisory on the Central African Republic:
Do not travel to Central African Republic (CAR) due to crime and civil unrest.
Violent crime, such as armed robbery, aggravated battery, and homicide, is common.
Large areas of the country are controlled by armed groups who regularly kidnap, injure, and/or kill civilians. In the event of unrest, airport, land border, and road closures may occur with little or no notice.
The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in the Central African Republic as U.S. government employees must obtain special authorization to travel outside the Embassy compound.
Please pray for Dr. Hibaile and his family ... for their safety and for their ministry of the gospel. Pray also for the funds he requires to continue ministering to those in government, both in the CAR and in the surrounding countries. The door is open for him to proclaim Christ. Pray that the lack of funds will not hinder his ministry!

I just arrived in Yaounde, Cameroon yesterday together with Pastor Mboi Andre, Abakar Ibrahim, Ismael Nogba and Jean de Dieu Lagnassa. We will meet with Evangelists from Chad, Cameroon and Encompass Experts Frank Puhl and Paul Klawitter to strategize about how to do Evangelisation in the Central African region now and in the future. The meeting will begin tomorrow until Friday.
I will have one week to rest, relax and visit with my daughter Jessie and her family before going back to Bangui on Saturday March 3, 2018.
Praise God for the opportunity CIDEL has to bring the leaders of the para church organisations in Bangui in a workshop where the question of taking our full responsibilities and inspiring trust and confidence was discussed at the Center of Ethics/Chapel at the University of Bangui. I was pleased with the participants of those invited and their contribution. We were asked to continue with such meeting.

Pray for CIDEL's project to bring some students of the university of Bangui trained on leadership and ethics in our center to share the principles on how to change their habits, their attitude in leadership with the students of the Agricultural Departement of the University in Mbaiki during the second trimester.
Pray for a serie of leadership training with the professors of the University of Bangui requested by the President of the University

Greetings to all,
Today my wife and I were invited to a diner with 26 couples that we have been their best man and maiden of honor since 2006. In 2012, God inspired us to organize an agape with all the couples we have worked with them in their marriages and have the first diner of the year in January 1, 2012. The second experience was in January 1, 2015 during the time of unrest in CAR. The third was held at the home of the first couple that we have been with them in 2006 and the fourth agape took place today.
We were encouraged by the testimonies of several of those couples who have been blessed by God since they became married and are doing their best to be faithful. They said that my marriage with Marie Helene has given a good example to them. We praised God for giving us such ministry that is blessing many families and impacting the lives of many children who will follow the examples of their parents.
Thank you for all your support for my family and ministry in the Central African Republic.

Greetings to all,
After 13 weeks of training 647 students in small groups on the Habitudes: images that form the habits and attitudes of leadership by Tim Elmore, 350 who have accomplish all the requirement, received their Certificate of completion last Friday, December 15, 2017 from the Representant of the Rector of the University of Bangui.
The impact of that training is great. A student girl who participated to that training and was a Buddhist ended by accepting Jesus as her personal Savior. Praise God who is bringing many to the eternal life through the ministry of CIDEL.
Please pray that God will continue to provide means for the growing ministry of CIDEL in CAR.
Attached are some pictures of the graduation ceremony.

Pray that God will inspire CIDEL to organize small groups of Pointman youth leaders at the University of Bangui, in different churches and different neighborhoods throughout the country. Pray also that God will provide financially for the ministry of CIDEL.
Please see attached pictures of the seminars, the audience with the Prime Minister a Pointman's Alumni.
