Vegetable garden co-ops! Amazing!

Roy & Tom & Nadege, our veggie garden specialist at CEFA, visited 3 co-op gardens across the border among the Fulani refugees the other day.  They were super encouraged by the energy and obvious enthusiasm for taking care of these crops.  There are 2 men’s co-ops and one women’s co-op, and it looks like they’re going to supply a lot of food to a lot of families.  CEFA and different special projects (Covenant Cares, FRB, Encompass Global, etc.) supply co-ops like these with tools and seed and advice.  Thanks to many of you, these refugees will be healthier and have some measure of economic stability.  With the gifts of these resources, the love of God becomes tangible, hopefully opening their hearts and minds to the true base of that love, the Gospel kzou co op blog kzou co op3 blog kzou coop

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.
