Bridge to the cattle pastures

Bridge to elevage before

Kim Cone and a team of Fulani have been working on clearing a road from the main orchard and crop section of the CEFA land into the cattle pasture section, but this waterway prevents easy crossing with vehicles.  Roy and crews had made a bridge a few weeks back, and it washed away within a couple of days of being completed because a violent rainstorm that swept through.

Bridge to elevage afterNow it’s in place again, with some cable to hold it from drifting too far downstream if a big rain comes again.  I believe this is a temporary fix until a bridge building friend of ours comes to visit.  And that depends on peace in the country, which doesn’t look great right now.

Please keep praying for CAR!!

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.
