Postponing Mother’s Day?!?

Yes, well, last Sunday was Mother’s Day in Europe and should have been here in C.A.R. I guess the powers that be in this area didn’t have their bouquets picked and their chiffon pie made yet, smile! Seriously, the local head of government, I guess he would be like a governor to Americans, postponed the celebration of Mother’s Day to this Sunday. There usually is a big party and a parade, so the postponement probably had something to do with the govenment not being ready or present for the parade? I don’t know.

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.
