A thought for Lent from Donaldson (IN) Covenant’s newsletter

While praying one day a woman asked, “Who

are you, God?”  He answered, “I Am”.  But, Who

Is, I Am? she asked.  He replied,

“I Am Love, I Am Peace, I

Am Grace, I Am Joy, I Am Strength, I Am

Safety, I Am Shelter, I Am Power, I Am

The Creator, I Am The Comforter, I Am The

Beginning and The End, I Am The Way,

Truth, and The Light”.  With tears in her

eyes she looked toward Heaven and

said, “Now I understand.  But, who am I?”

God tenderly wiped the tears

from her eyes and whispered,

“You Are Mine”.

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.
