Muslixms still in CAR

blog Fulani still in CAR Jan 2015Just a heads up to keep praying for relations between Muslixms and non-Muslixms here in CAR.  Pray for healing and peace, reconciliation and restitution.  There have been tremendous losses and hurts on both sides, and we just have to keep hoping for a peaceful future for this country.  This map shows where there are still large groups of Muslixms, mostly in miserable conditions, just trying to wait out the conflict.  Approximately 500,000 fled in early 2014, but these 36,000+ remain, some being held against their will if some stories are true.  Please keep praying.

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.
