Prayer requests for July

We are thankful to be busy at work, at the hospital and in the ag project, but we would ask for prayer that we would keep people as first priority. It is so easy for both of us to get too involved in the task at hand.
Please keep praying for our friend Erik and his colleagues, still detained in the capital; that the truth would prevail and they would be released. Erik’s father had an audience with some high-up types and we hope that this will help.
Please pray that the Lord would show us how to share among the Fulani, that the Fulani would be open to hearing the Good News.

Please pray for our plans for visiting the Jesus following Fulani, that we would be a blessing and not cause undue attention to their village.

Please pray for leadership seminars going on out in the villages this month, that co-op members would understand and take responsibility and true ownership of their projects.
Our son, Sam & family are looking into alternate ministry opportunities – a hoped for position is not an option now so please pray for the Lord’s direction and peace as they seek a place to minister.
Please pray for our son Josh & family’s good friend, Derek, who was in a bad car accident and is in ICU in a hospital 4 hours from his home and family (wife, Kim, + 2 little girls).
We are looking forward to a 10 day vacation at the beach with missionary friends Tim & Helen Smith. It isn’t always easy to take these 4 weeks/year off, and we will enjoy the time with our buddies.

 Thank you for your prayers!
Roy & Aleta

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.
