Our little Sunday gathering

Well, out at the farm, which is 3 miles from the closest church, we have enjoyed a small worship service on the past 2 Sunday mornings.  Wherever 2 or 3 are gathered…

An interesting side note – I am a fairly tall woman, and I could not stand up straight under the thatch of this church shelter, so I sat as I shared that morning.  The custom here is  to stand when you pray or preach, so I was definitely out of the norm.  The guy leading the service actually asked God to forgive us because I was sitting instead of standing.  What do you think?  Was it a sin?

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.
