Relaxing read in the shade

Nothing better to while away the long hours and days and weeks while you’re under the first two months’ treatment for TB than to sit under a tree and read God’s word. This Fulani man is reading I and II Samuel in Ajamiya, which is his mother tongue, Fulfulde, in Arabic script. We find that many men (few women are literate) eagerly receive different books of the bible, some old testament and some new testament, and read them, sometimes together. We say thank you! to many of you who have helped this to happen!

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.
