Below is a blog entry from Covenant Missionaries Roy and Aleta Danforth in the Central African Republic. They are carrying out a CWR sponsored project with our partner, Foods Resource Bank. You can read their blog at http://car-cefa.blogspot.com/.
This is Maryam, an amazing woman of new found faith in the Lord. She came to the Gamboula hospital last year, seeking treatment for her baby, Happiness, on her back in the photo. Not only was Happiness’ life saved at the hospital, but Maryam found new life herself, spiritually, because of the kindness and sharing of some of the nurses and others there. She returned to her home across the border, and while there, read a book about a Central African man, called Samson, a man who took great steps in giving to others because of what he had received. Maryam was so touched by this story that she decided to do likewise. She came back to Gamboula, and contributed time and money in the hospital’s nutrition garden. The photo shows her at work in the nutrition garden. This garden is an integral part of teaching and outreach in the CEFA project.
