CIDEL News CIDEL News Thursday September 27th 2018 <p>From the Editor:&nbsp;</p> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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."</p> <p>Please join me in praying for our brother. And ask others to pray as well!&nbsp;</p> <p>Thanks for caring and praying!&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>John F.

On May 24th, the United States State Department issued the following travel advisory on the Central African Republic:&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Do not travel to Central African Republic (CAR) due to&nbsp;<strong>crime</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>civil unrest</strong>.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Violent crime, such as armed robbery, aggravated battery, and homicide, is common.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>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.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>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.</em></p> <p>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!&nbsp;</p> <p>The editor</p> Monday February 19th 2018 <p>Dear supporters,</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>I just arrived in Yaounde, Cameroon yesterday together with Pastor Mboi Andre, Abakar Ibrahim, Ismael Nogba and Jean de Dieu Lagnassa.

Otherwise, this will affect my plan to visit some of you during this trip. The trip will be sponsored by Pointman Leadership Institute and if the training is postponed because of the lack of visa, it's may not be possible for me to travel. I pray that God will allow me to make that trip to see my daughter and arrange some of her school's need.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Thanks for praying for this very important project of training those instructors who will help me in conducting ethical leadership and anti corruption seminars throughout the Francophone Africa countries.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>I am hosting the Executive Director of the Encompass World Partners and his team from the USA at the Mission's property here in Bangui. Today, we were welcomed by the Prime Minister in his cabinet and prayed with me.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Together</div> <div>Augustin</div> Sunday June 4th 2017 <p>Greetings to all,<br /><br />The 22rd prayer breakfast in Berlin has hosted more than 300 people from 57 countries. The Presidents of Albania and Madagascar and the Prime Minister of my countries were part of the international gathering. We were six members of the Prime Minister delegation.<br /><br />Before I left Berlin yesterday to be in Babenhausen now to visit a friend of mine who is a Christian lawyer and than to Stuttgart with my long time brother in Christ, I went to pray with the Prime Minister and he did expressed his joy to be part of this important gathering where he has learn ways to get his country closer to God. He is willing to work on starting a prayer breakfast in CAR. He was pleased to meet with some members of the Bundestag and from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss about the relationship between his country and Germany. He was thankful that I made this trip possible for the President who has asked him to represent him.<br /><br />My closing prayer at the end of the prayer breakfast has a great impact on many. It's went to the heart of many. The attached pictures are for those who came to me with especial need. The first picture is of me and a VIP from Sudan. He acknowledge the fact that The Koran has mentioned Jesus more than 19 times and only one time about their prophet Mohammed. That means that Jesus has a great value in Islamic faith. Ashram will be coming to Bangui my country in a near future with a delegation from Sudan.<br /><br />The second picture is me and a Nigerian who has expressed his hatred against the Islamist Boko Aram who have killed so many educated young people in his country and many from his village. He has a hard to time to support the Muslim.&nbsp; Yesterday before we left, he came to me and asked me if I can pray with him for peace in Jesus. I gave him some counseling and prayed with him.<br /><br />Praise God that I have had a great opportunity to minister to the lives of many and different leaders worldwide.
