We are safe, but we had to leave C.A.R.

We were 9 vehicles in convoy with 25 people and whatever we could bring away, crossing on the ferry, 3 vehicles at a time. We had to leave in a hurry, and we were SO blessed by African colleagues who kept us up on what was happening and gave us advice about when to leave and what road to take. We are continuing on, a little early, to the Covenant missionary fellowship site – the beach at Kribi, Cameroon! Fellowship will be next week, April 1-5, and afterwards we had planned a vacation break anyway.

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.
