New palm oil press for the CEFA farm

This is exciting!  Usually the palm nuts are processed by hand, yes, our friends rub the boiling hot nuts together with bare hands to get the flesh off and now CEFA has a press to make light work of a tough job!???????????????????????????????blog oil press??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Boiling the oil to clean it up.  Sorry I don’t have a photo of the lovely, sort of clear, orange, highly saturated fat end product.  I’ll tell you what though, this fat is about the only fat they have in their diet, they don’t get much meat or dairy and therefore usually wouldn’t need to be worrying about cholesterol, so it probably is actually good for them.???????????????????????????????

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.
