Seder supper

The missionary group here at Gamboula got together to celebrate Passover and especially remember what our ultimate sacrificial lamb, Jesus, did for us. We kind of had to make do with the different elements of the feast, but I think it all went well. We substituted radishes for horseradish and mangoes and pistachios for apples and walnuts, and sorry to say we had chicken instead of lamb. The important thing is what went on in our hearts and minds, to remember what Jesus said and did for us and to be ever so thankful with repentant hearts for the hope of our future.

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.
