October prayer requests

Dear Praying Friends & Family,

Thank you for praying for CEFA director Benoit, his travels have gone very well. He is still in Burkina Faso at an ECHO (Christian ag development org) conference as I write this. His return is planned for Oct. 2nd.

Please pray for Byron Admundsen, one of our “bigwigs” from the Chicago Covenant offices, who is on the road in Congo (DRC) right now but will be visiting with us and then in Cameroon Oct. 6-20. Pray for permission for the mission plane to land at Gamboula, pray for his health and safety as he travels over many many miles.

Please keep praying for Jean Bedel, our candidate for the position of ag village extension agent/assistant director of CEFA. He has kept in contact with us from the capital and we are hopeful that he soon will join us in ministry. Along these lines, CEFA is interviewing candidates for farm director and secretary/bookkeeper. There are a couple of very good applicants/possibles, so we continue to hope and pray for a complete staff for CEFA.

At the mission hospital we are preparing for the arrival of two ocean freight containers full of medical supplies from Sweden. These containers are being processed in the port of Douala, Cameroon, right now. Please pray for smooth, quick, and not-too-expensive processing.

Please pray for our upcoming Fulani strategy planning. Now that we have a new family here at Gamboula, AND, PTL, we have the possibility of another young family coming too, we really need to be deliberate in our search for God’s guidance. Please pray that we would be faithful to the Lord’s leading, that we would have hearts and minds open and sensitive to how we should proceed.

Blessings and hugs,

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.
