Please pray for Desiree

Our energetic local veggie grower has been through an extremely tough time over the past couple of months.  He is under treatment for severe pulmonary tuberculosis as well as being on AIDS meds.  We thought we might lose him and we would appreciate prayer for him as he gains strength back. He has lost probably 50 pounds to this illness, but seems to be on the mend.  We are so thankful that the AIDS meds are available through the government’s public health department.  We have to follow their criteria list, so a person has to be VERY sick with HIV before they can start the meds.  We are thankful that Desiree survived the first 2 months of TB treatment and is eating well and getting around.  Thanks for your prayers for him.  He normally is all over the place with his ideas and his energy and running the model farm.

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.
