Colleagues flee as rebels advance

Some Yaounde based friends, and colleagues of ours, visiting missionary families in Gamboula, Central African Republic, had to flee their homes as rebels overtook the city yesterday.

At one point the military passed them up as they too were fleeing.

Pray for continued safety as they plan on arriving home Wednesday.
