Maia Esengo is here!

We received this message yesterday and received photos today and wanted to share our joy!!!!
Dear Family,
Maia Esengo was born at 3:43 am today, Sept. 13, weighing in at a whopping 8lbs 7 3/4 oz and stretching a full 20 3/4 inches. “Maia” has a Hebrew root meaning “close to God,” and “Esengo” means “joy” in Lingala. She looks a lot like her big sister, and even has some red in her hair. We’ll send out some pictures in a bit.
Kimia is doing well – she’s resting. The delivery went fine (no complications), and we thank God for a healthy baby and a healthy Momma.
Praise the Lord!
Josh, Kimia, Maddie, and Maia

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.
