André is the Team Leader for Africa and is responsible for providing continental leadership. He acts as the primary liaison with partners in Africa and oversees partnerships and programs. He will lead the team in reaching organizational goals by directing, coaching and empowering Africa Field Staff and assisting continental partners in the accomplishment of shared objectives. Pray for the overall security in the region as many innocent lives have been lost at the hands of militia and armed groups. Pray for the improvement of diplomatic ties between countries in the region as this is affecting people’s ability to move and is negatively impacting cross border businesses. Pray for peace and stability in South Sudan as the peace agreement inauguration was postponed. Heavy rains causing flooding has also led to a humanitarian crisis. Please also pray for the CBM team in Africa, for health and safety, as they travel to the communities often.
