Today we are requesting urgent prayer for ACATBA, one of our partner organisations in the Central African Republic.
ACATBA* exists to promote local language development, Bible translation, literacy and community development in the Central African Republic. These would be big goals in an easy environment, but when you live in a nation that has been beset with political instability and significant unrest with large portions of the population internally displaced, how much more challenging does reaching your goals become?
As an organisation, ACATBA is facing some significant challenges which are crippling their efforts. Primary amongst these are issues with their computers. They told us that a few days ago their accounting computer stopped working. An IT specialist from the US called Mike is working online to try to save the accounting database which will otherwise be lost.
Please thank God for Mike and ask him to help Mike recover the database. Ask God to provide ACATBA Finance Services with two new computers with the appropriate software and comprehensive training so that their staff can use them well.
During the last 5 years, ACATBA funding for projects has decreased and there has not been available finance for new computers. During the civil war in the Central African Republic, a significant proportion of ACATBA equipment was looted and some computers were just too old and died. ACATBA is in need of 24 new computers to resume the work of Bible translation in the Central African Republic.
Please pray for ACATBA projects in CAR, that God would provide the computers they need. Pray also for the 22 language communities with which ACATBA is working, that God would open a way for translation to move forward so that these communities can access and be transformed by God’s word in their language.
