We are back in full swing, unpacked and settled in. We had a group of Peace Corps people show up unexpectedly the other day, interested in seeing the ag development going on. We had them in for lunch – I found out at 11:15 and had it ready by 12:30. It was easy to do, but it meant skipping out on whatever work I was supposed to have done during that hour or so. It was fun to visit with these young people and hear a bit about where they’re from and what their hopes are.

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.
