Sad news and more sad news

We’ve had our share of sad news these past couple of months. A lab tech, GOLO Timothee, who had worked for the mission hospital for over 25 years, died of liver disease. A nurse, ABO Dieu Donnee, died last week after battlling with serious sickness for a long time. We had to fire another nurse because of his ongoing struggle with alcoholism. Various employees have recently lost loved ones. It seems we are in a season for weeping. As an aside, we are very thankful for the new graduates from our mission’s nursing school. What with the staff dwindling, they are able to fill in as they continue to perfect their skills and complete their training by next February.

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.
