New Fulani friends

Thanks to our colleague, Kim Cone’s, penchant for walking and exploring, we have two new bunches of Fulani friends, not more than a 45 minute walk from us.  They are here in our vicinity for their cattle, as this is dry season and they roam to find good grazing land.  We hope they are also here to hear how very very much God loves them!  You can see from the photos that they truly are nomads, sleeping in makeshift shelters.

Their cattle are really quite skinny, and they aren’t sure of the treatment they are giving.  We could really get excited about a vet joining our ministry team, to help the Fulani with their heartfelt needs that center around their cattle, which are their life center.  Please pray for these new friends, pray for open hearts and please pray for a vet for our team!

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.
