Along the road on my weekly trip across the river


You never know what you’re going to see!  Sometimes it’s tragedy that makes you offer prayers for possible injured peopleblog Kzou road sights2 Sometimes it’s a big surprise – this was my first horse sighting in this area!blog Kzou road sights3Sometimes it’s a good sign, like this cattle market and the smiles on the faces of friends from our town, giving me the hope that they’re going to survive this troubled time

Sometimes it’s the ordinary here but bizarre to western thinking, like this roadside butcher shop with the cow’s head on beautiful display for quick sale!

Sometimes it’s just seeing everyday life that doesn’t bow to the modern world – the cattle take precedence over the motor vehicle.

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.
