Dave H., John, & Letha’s visit to the CEFA farm

Dave Husby, Covenant World Relief (CWR) director, came to visit, along with John & Letha Kerl, our Covenant missionary regional coordinators.   It was so great to be able to show them around the farm, especially because CWR has been a HUGE contributor to the CEFA non-profit organization.  Roy and colleagues were able to show our visitors the gamut of work on the farm; from fishponds to experimental crops, from turkeys to massive seed production to alleviate the coming food crisis which we are expecting as a result of the ongoing conflict in the country.  Whole villages have been deserted, which means farms are not being worked, and now, the beginning of rainy season, is the time to start planting!

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.
