Our dear friend and colleague, Dalene, has passed away, right on the heels of our buddy, J’s, death.  Dalene was one of those sweet, quiet, in the background women.  Even when she was feeling poorly, she seemed to come up with a smile and the energy to make others feel welcome to her little palm leaf walled home.  She had a servant heart, and was a good and caring mom to a flock of children she married into, very unlike the usual adoptive parents that we have known.  Her absence in the little town across the river from our home in C.A.R. will be a great loss to many, but especially to her husband, Pastor B.  Our Fulani friends could always find a listening ear and a warm welcome at their home.

Please pray for Pastor B, for their family and friends, and especially for the Fulani there, that they would understand that Dalene has gone to be with the Lord, only because she believed He was her Lord and Savior.  Peace to her memory.blog Dalene1Dalene is the one in the pink blouse, with a Fulani neighbor sitting next to her and her husband, Pastor B, standing on her left.

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.
