December prayer requests

Thank you for your faithful prayers, even when we skip a month of sending you our concerns and praises!

Our colleague Kim Cone is doing very well, healing from hepatitis – thank you for praying for him.

Our many church visits for 2011 are now done.  We will have a break for the whole month of December, and will take up our suitcases again the first week of January.  Thank you for your prayers that helped us keep on, in safety and health.

December is just around the corner, and we are so excited about our son, Sam, and his family coming from Spokane, WA, for a long visit.  Sam and Anna will be going to Cameroon in the middle of the month to participate in the celebration of the long worked on Noni New Testament dedication.  We are looking forward to having our whole family together for about two full weeks, and we’ll have our grandchildren, Elaina and Sawyer, living with us for the 10 days that Sam and Anna are in Cameroon.  Please pray for safe travels for them and for many who will be attending the Noni celebration.  What a party that will be!!!

We are blessed with frequent, almost daily, contact with our son Josh and his family.  Lots of projects at their home, like fencing and porch pillar replacement, are getting
done.  We have such great fun with Maddie and Maia, what joy to have their sweet faces light up each time we come in the door!

Roy had a great check-up, and actually needed to be reminded of his teeth troubles in order to calm down the silly pride!  We are so very thankful for our health.

We still have yet to hear that the cargo truck for the ag program has arrived to Gamboula.  Please pray that the paper work for the duty free entry would be processed quickly and properly.

Please continue to pray for Benoit and the ag program, especially as he will be connecting with 10 new villages and preparing for visitors from the states in January.

Please pray for Tim and Ann Wester as they are the only missionaries at Gamboula until Cones’ return in January.

Please continue to pray for the Lord to reveal himself in the thoughts, hearts, and dreams of the Fulani people.

Thank you again for taking the time to pray!

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.
