August Prayer concerns

Thank you for caring enough to pray!
The leadership seminars in the ag/development co-ops out in 15 villages went well.
YIPPEE! YAY, GOD!! Our son, Sam , passed the technical evaluation exams (July 23-31) for entrance into mission with MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) as an airplane mechanic. They have had good evaluation meetings so far concerning how they would fit in with the organization and have had great encouragement from the MAF staff. PTL.
Our kids’ friend Derek is out of the hospital and back home with his family, PTL. Please continue to pray that he will completely recover from his severe head injury; right now it sounds like outpatient rehab and some struggles with short term memory are the key things to pray for.
It looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel for the captivity of our friend Erik and his colleagues. Please keep praying that the truth would prevail.
Please pray for Halima, a young mother of 6 children, one of whom died just last year. She was deserted by her husband and is now struggling with a horrific infection at our hospital.
Pray that the love she feels and hears and sees would translate to her having an open heart for the gospel.
Please pray for Hammadou, a Fulani man very dear to our hearts, who is facing life and health issues that seem to be taking him away into darkness and depression. We have an notion that he is being swayed by lies and ideas from leaders in his religion. Please pray for healing for him and for his release from misconceptions, that he would understand how much God really loves him!
May our amazing God bless you this day!

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.
