Visiting Sharon Davis in Bamenda

Sharon Davis is an amazing woman, networking in all different directions to see people enabled, healthy, and hearing about the Lord.  While we visited her, if we mentioned a ministry or had a question or needed to find something in a shop, BOOM!, she was on the phone with someone who knew something about that issue.  She’s busy helping people, with a fervent focus on women, to help themselves in so many ways, but she told me her favorite thing, her highlight of all the ministries is biblical storytelling.  We’ve had a great visit and pray God’s blessings on our friend!

Sharon lives in a city in northern Cameroon, tucked in a valley, and we traveled on steep roads to get to her place.

We had lots of good talk time, and Byron Amundsen was a major player in our time there, as he has been visiting all the Covenant missionaries in Africa to check up on safety and security for each of us.

We saw amazing sights and went from crazy downtown bustle to the beauty of the mountains in less than an hour.  Sharon is a servant hearted hostess, and we were treated royally.  Roy was the official driver for the whole trip, and there were moments when he was dog tired!   Thank you Sharon, for an amazing time!

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.

    Hi Roy and Aleta:

    Thanks for the report and pictures. You look relaxed when you sleep. The vehicles stuck and upside down remind me of my brother, Harry, and stories of Ethiopia 50 years ago.
    Some things don’t change much in various parts of Africa. Thank the Lord the means of communication have changed far to the better.

    You are in our prayers.
    Bob and Anne
