Carrying on

Some of our closest M friends here in town have crossed, at least women and children, but some are choosing to stay, being quite typically fatalistic about what will happen tomorrow – “if Allah wills it”.  They continue on with their everyday lives carrying burdens on their heads and in their hearts.

blog HawaMy dear friend, Hajja Hawa, who I am reading through the bible in stories with, came to me this past weekend to tell me she was crossing over to Cameroon to wait this out.  I will miss her, but hopefully we’ll be able to visit each other in the meantime.  May the Lord have mercy on this country!

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.
