Women’s groups’ blessings!

Two Sundays in a row we’ve had special ceremonies at church – last Sunday was the “Sister’s Union” and this week it was “Women of the Good News or who speak the truth or …” (Sango is a language of few words with lots of meanings!) The women (of the Good News) in the bright blue with yellow sashes are actually all students in the women’s school, most of them wives of bible school and nursing school students. The women’s school teaches home management, reading and writing, child care and general health, sewing, bible, etc. This group of women meets every Thursday for prayer and bible study and bible verse memorization. The Sister’s Union, basically “Women’s group” in the black and white, has a choir that sings every Sunday at the French speaking service at our local church.

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.
