a visitor, come and gone!

Jacob Smith is a British SIL/Wycliffe missionary kid who grew up in Cameroon and a recent high school grad. He expressed an interest in coming to Gamboula for a couple weeks to see what we’re up to. He helped with the ag work and was just a generally pleasant and helpful addition to our goings on here. Paul & Sheryl Noren brought him along in their truck trip from Yaounde at the beginning of the month. This morning he took off in a bush “taxi” – really an overloaded, overcrowded, dusty hot ride in a small bus. It is cheap and usually gets you where you’re going, an adventure custom made for a 19 year old!

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.
