Have you ever carolled on Easter?

He is risen! Alleluia! I joined with a small group of ladies who, every year, starting before the sun comes up, walk through the neighborhood, singing songs about how our Lord has risen from the dead. Aside from occasional stumbling on the rough and rutted and sometimes mango cast-off strewn dirt road, (I couldn’t shine my tiny flashlight on the words in Sango and the road at the same time!) it was an amazing experience. To be singing through the neighborhood as the sun came up, glorious! All praise and thanks be to our amazing and loving Lord!

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.
