Make an appointment at the hair place for me!

There’s a nice cool place on the grass near the hospital storerooms where Fulani women from the hospital gather in the afternoons. They chat and giggle and do each other’s hair, watch their small children, and do their two afternoon prayers. At this point in time, I just have time to chat for a few minutes at a time, as I come and go and work in the storerooms, but hopefully in the near future (after the container comes) I’ll be able to sit and talk for longer periods. I’ll maybe even get a new hairdo, but at least I’ll just sit and be there with them, the ultimate statement of care and love!!

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.
