The road to CEFA – the story continues!

Roy has hired crews of about 10 each to clear the road, 500m per group, and the 5 kilometers from the main road to the entry of the CEFA land is almost done! They have to make it 6 meters wide and try to crown it down the middle and dig ditches on the sides so when the big rains start, the road won’t turn into a river bed.
You can see that some of the crews are pretty much creating the road, whereas this one group is just cleaning up the first section right off the main road.
Here’s a little old Fulani man, with plastic aqua shoes, doing his part for his group of road clearers!
Here’s Roy, having found one of the corner boundary markers for the property – lots of trudging through the brush with a machete to get there, with the help of a GPS.

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.
