Women’s conference

We’ve just had a week long conference for the “Union des Soeurs”, or “Sisters’ Group”.  They’ve had teachings and early morning prayer and exercise, singing and dancing and a competition to see which region (they’ve come from as far away as 300 miles) gave the most offering money!  Today, Saturday, the meetings will end and there will be a wedding ceremony for the president of our local group.  The ladies here at Gamboula really worked hard, painting the church inside and out and hanging new lacy curtains and decorations inside.

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.
