Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

The big aluminum offering bowl contained a very dusty twelve pack of soda, a plastic bag of dried cassava root, a few other opaque plastic bags with unknown contents, hands full of Central African Franc coins, assorted CFA bills and oh look, here comes a very unhappy adult male goat. After arrival at the ‘alter’ they tied his legs and placed him under the basket. The next song was pierced by anguished bleats from Mr. Goat. The audience smiled and continued to sing and dance.

This is Obo, Central Africa Republic (CAR). A new pastor is ordained into Christian Ministry in CEEC church today. Life goes on in this corner of CAR while the rest of the country is at war. For over a year we’ve been reading repeated horror stories of ruthless rebel devastation of this country centered in the capital, Bangui. In a few days we hope to visit there also. Our main purpose of this trip is to grieve with, to comfort, love, and encourage our dear brothers and sisters in The Lord who have suffered at first the horrors of the LRA and now at the devastation of the Seleka Rebels.

Oh Jesus, may we somehow convey your “I have overcome the world” triumph to these remote children of yours who are truly knowing your promise of “in the world you will have trouble.”
