Encouragement for displaced villagers


There are thousands of displaced villagers in C.A.R, people who fled from their homes and fields to seek safety.  Many of their homes were looted and some were burned.  Some have been able to return home and have begun to plant their fields again as the rains have begun.  Many still are living with relatives and friends, still waiting out the conflict.  To encourage these friends, CEFA, with the help of many generous donors, has again put together care packages. CEFA’s director and crew, including Roy and Tom H., helped give out bags of food on Friday.???????????????????????????????Preparing the bags of supplies


Listening to the director’s words of encouragement, and waiting their turn to carry home their gift

What a joy to be able to participate in this, to see the smiles instead of tears and fear!

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.
