May prayer requests

Dear Family and Friends,

Again we come to you with one basic request for prayer this month, but it has many facets:

Please pray for peace and order in the Central African Republic.

We still are hearing from our African colleagues that things seem peaceful at Gamboula. We hear that the local government officials and armed forces have been re-established, and that those who had been hired to help win the conflict have been called back to the capital. This gives us hope.

Please pray:

For peace to be completely restored in all of the Central African Republic – for no more harm to people nor destruction of property

For peace in the hearts of our African friends and colleagues at Gamboula, for healing for all, missionary and nationals alike, for healing in post traumatic stress.

For Roy and 4 missionary colleagues as they meet with leaders from our mission and decide whether they can make some day visits during these first few days of May. For safety in travel and wisdom in all things.

For wise choices for us as we make decisions about our future. Roy & I may live in the border town across the river from our mission, with a couple of missionary colleagues. This will enable us to have continual contact across the way and also make it possible for us to again work among the Fulani in that small border town.

For missionary colleagues still in the capital. That they would remain safe and be a blessing in their resolution to stay put.

Thank you for your prayers, as we rest in God’s care

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.
