Stories from across the border 2

When Roy & Luke & Leanne & Kim & Rose-Marie arrived to the small town on the Cameroon side of the river, they were welcomed to a lovely guesthouse at a Catholic mission there.  Five leaders from Gamboula came across the river to have a meeting; to give our group an idea of how things really were going and whether it would be okay to visit.

The reports were positive.  Our region was the shining example, angel protected, amongst all the regions in the country.  Peace was reigning, and no violence or looting had taken place since that very first day.  Schools were in session, the hospital was running, things were as if we had never left.  Our group made the decision to cross, and had amiable encounters with the new forces in control.  They were pleased to find that most of the people previously in charge, like the commissioner of police and the commander of the local armed forces, were back in their places.  Aside from finding the peaceful atmosphere, the reunions with friends and colleagues were definitely the highlights of the visit!


Roy with Benoit Z, the ag director.  Benoit Z has had a stressful time, unwilling to stay at home because of his position as director of a prosperous NGO.  Please pray for him and his family!

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.
