From the Editor:
I recently received an email from Augustin Hibaile. In it he shared some discouragements he is currently facing. One involves the lack of board members. He is asking for prayer that God will raise up individuals who will catch the vision of CIDEL's ministry.
A second discouragment involves those with whom he works. Since 2005, CIDEL has functioned with three full time workers (including Dr. Hibalie). However, recently one of his staff had to go on administrative leave while another has accepted a call to serve as a missionary in Ivory Coast. This leaves Dr. Hibaile all alone to attempt to take on increasing opportunities for ministry.
He is right now feeling overwhelmed with these developments. In his own words: "This is my spiritual warfare I am facing these days. I need your prayers. Please mobilize prayer warriors to support me during this difficult time so that God will bring godly workers into his harvest."
Please join me in praying for our brother. And ask others to pray as well!
Thanks for caring and praying!

Greetings to every one!
Praise God we are able to make it graciously in the month of August.
July was a little bit difficult for my family and ministry but God is still in control.
There is a strike at the hospital so my daughter is not scheduled yet for her surgery. Please pray for the opportunity my daughter can have for her treatment.
The project of CIDEL for a pedagogical mission to the University in the South of Bangui was postponed until next month. We have a three days workshop planned with the pastors of the District of Bangui II (Grace Brethren Churches) that was scheduled for today, was also postponed because the Pastors and their wives were not ready.
Please pray for my family and for CIDEL's ministry. We are facing the devil opposition in many ways but count on the power and authority of our Lord.
Together in his ministry.

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!
