Shelling peanuts and beans

“Roy’s bean” imported from DRCongo

Corn, beans, and peanuts were planted a couple of months ago.  Now the harvest is plenty, and there’s hope for sharing the seed with needy farmers.  Farmers who possible were displaced and now are able to go back home to their village and their fields. Or farmers who lost the chance to save seed earlier.  Or farmers who are members of co-operatives who are interested in planting extra to help feed friends and neighbors who may be in dire need a few months from now.   CEFA is in the process of drying, shelling, and distributing this much needed seed.

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.
