Monday across the border

We had a good trip on Monday to visit with our Fulani friends across the border. Here’s a photo of one of the veggie gardens that we are helping these former non-farming people to start.kentzou-veggies
As we drove on the road up to the meeting place, we saw a big corn harvest going on. What amazed us was that the men were doing the work of hulling the corn! They pile a bunch of dried ears in a bag and whack away at it with a heavy stick, then finish up the hulling by hand. It would now be the women’s job to pound the kernels into flour in a big wooden mortar and pestle.

About danforth

As Covenant missionaries, we are working with all the tribal groups of the Central African Republic (CAR) but are trying to give special attention to the Fulani, a Musxlim, cattle herding, and semi-nomadic people group. We live on an experimental/training farm, near a mission station which has a hospital plus bible and nursing schools. We are establishing relationships with the local people groups through compassion ministries; Roy through agriculture and Aleta through public health and visitation, in order, ultimately, to share the good news of Jesus the Messiah with them. CAR is one of the least developed countries in the world and is currently in continual crisis (since the coup in March 2013), so reaching out in compassion is key to reaching their hearts. Due to the ongoing conflict and resultant ethnic cleansing in CAR, we are crossing the border to interact with our Fulani contacts.
