What in the world is “FIBAT”?

FIBAT is the french acronym for Faculte (Seminary), Internationale (Int’l.), BAptiste (Baptist), de Theologie (Theology). In other words, it is a Baptist, theological seminary that hopes to attract students and teachers from outside the country. What country you ask? C.A.R. stands for the Central African Republic. This is a country almost the size of Texas, in the center of the African continent! It is surrounded by six other countries. [Clockwise, starting to the north is Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Belgian Congo and Cameroon.] French is the official business language and Sango is the common language across the country, but there are many tribal dialects as well.
