Praying for the country

Many people gathered in front of the elementary school downtown, next to the mayor’s office, on Sunday afternoon, to pray for peace, to pray for forgiveness, to pray for mercy.   The speaker talked about 2 Chronicles 7:14 and we prayed for the Lord’s blessing and healing.  It was powerful to be there in the midst of a crowd who cared enough to come out in the hot sun and pray.  The commander of the local army and the mayor were present.

We are still hearing bits of bad news from other parts of the country, but Gamboula remains an angel protected pocket of peace.

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.
