Peanuts for the nutrition center

I was just able to buy 5 big bags (like in this picture) of peanuts in the shell. These will provide some good protein for the kids in the nutrition center at our mission hospital. It’s almost time for the local farmers to plant peanuts, and last year was a very bad year for peanut harvest, so we are blessed to have been able to get so many nuts right now. The woman in the photo is Clarisse, who manages the center with amazing warmth and joy.

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.
