  • Healing from trauma

    Participants in previous trauma healing workshops in Bangui, Central African Republic, are facilitating healing groups and sharing with others about being healed from their wounds of trauma. One young woman taught others about how to help traumatized children. People listened with tears running down their cheeks and responded, “We did not realize that the ways our children were acting were symptoms of trauma. Punishing them only made things worse. Now we know what to do to help them.” Pray for healing for victims of trauma and for those ministering God’s healing to their friends and neighbors. Thank God for working His healing in many lives.

  • Bible translators minister to others

    In the midst of civil conflict, Lutos Bible translators in the Central African Republic also minister to speakers of their language in other ways. They seek to bring God’s healing to the wounded hearts of the traumatized people around them. They welcome displaced people into their homes and provide what help they can. They desperately long for an end to the conflict. Pray with them that peace will return soon to their home areas. Pray that the available Scripture portions will reach deep into people’s hearts and bring God’s healing.

  • Courage and persistence

    Kabba Bible translators in the Central African Republic have worked on the New Testament translation for over 20 years. At times they were hindered by armed uprisings, civil conflict and infrastructure issues in the country. Sometimes they, along with their families, could not live safely in their home areas. Please pray for peace in their home town, Paoua, and that they will be able to complete work on the New Testament in 2017. Pray that many more Kabba people will be able to hear God speaking to them in their language.
