Seems like things are calm in this neck of the woods

Thank you for your prayers for this country.  It seems that things have now calmed down in most places, and that the new government is in place.  All of the friends who were temporarily staying with us due to the unrest have now left.  Some are in other places still waiting to go back to the capital, some have gone, a  bit early, to their home assignments in the states and other countries, and then some have actually returned to their homes in the capital.   Then we have a young family near and dear to us, Karl & Mary Noren +3, who can’t go back to their work because of the continued presence, near their home base, of marauding poachers who are taking advantage and wreaking havoc because of the government’s preoccupation elsewhere. (We have heard reports of the decimation of many elephants and other wildlife.) Thank you for your continued prayer, that peace will reign.

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.
