Through War & Peace – Weekly Inspiring Image

central african republic school girls

Playful young girls in the town of Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR) happily greet a visitor to their school. The people of CAR have been through tense times over these last two months of political unrest. Despite a peace plan signed in early January our Bible translation colleagues have recently had two of their offices looted and vandalized and have at times needed to hide for safety. Please pray for the safety of the staff of Wycliffe’s partner, ACATBA, who leads the country’s translation and literacy work, as they respond to this crisis and for the rebuilding that will follow. Our colleagues, like Elvis and Francis, have worked during unrest before. Please pray for the work of Bible translation and literacy to move forward despite these challenges.
