Ramadan’s almost over

Ramadan is nearly over with for this year, and we are hoping that our Fulani friends are blessed by dreams and visions of the Messiah. Please pray especially for them on their night of prayer/power, when they stay up all night and pray – this will be 2 days before the end of the fasting month, depending on when they see the moon (or rather, don’t see it at all). Pray for Rabi, (pronounced Rahbee) who I have known since she was 2 years old when she almost died of TB and malnutrition. She’s now a beautiful 12 year old, healthy and at the top of her class at school. She will now quit school and be at home with her family. She embroidered the bedspread on her lap and came to sell it to us so she could have some cash to go to the hospital for a check-up (it sounds like she might have the beginnings of malaria). She is one of the granddaughters of Chief T, the clan leader who is so near and dear to our hearts.

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.
