Chad peace talks ambigious
“Theres another very important prayer request that we’ve heard from our brothers and sisters there. Armed rebels coming from Sudan ‘s Darfur region have spread terror in the name of Islam in eastern Chad .”
February 22, 2008 Chad (MNN) ― There is some question as to whether or not peace talks are actually underway in Chad . This report comes in the aftermath of an attempted coup d’etat at the end of January. Rebels deny government reports of negotiations.
Open Doors’ Jerry Dykstra says they’re following the situation because their ministry teams were scattered by the violence. There is an uneasy calm in part of the country, but “there’s another very important prayer request that we’ve heard from our brothers and sisters there. Armed rebels coming from Sudan ‘s Darfur region have spread terror in the name of Islam in eastern Chad .”
Other stories like this began to spread. Others shared their experiences, too. According to Pastor Daidanso, the Chadian Radio Television was completely burned to ashes because of the bombardments. But the Church of the Good News belonging to the Christian Assemblies of Chad that is right next to it was saved through God’s powerful hand.
Open Doors also revealed what happened to the Evangelical Church of Chad. This church of more than 1,500 members whose pastor is Bako Celestin was also spared from bombardment. Yet the beautiful market of Ndjamena was largely destroyed, even though it sits about a hundred meters from the church. Apparently, Christians didn’t undergo any major difficulties.
Pray for the Christians of Chad to be helped by God in all circumstances and to be strengthened in their faith.
