Please pray for this mama and baby

Little Raabi, who once was a tiny toddler with a mega case of TB at our mission hospital, is now a mom.  We have been friends through thick and thin, and the “thick” in her case is more than just about any other Fulani friend that I have.  She had her baby early, and little Yusufa weighs only 3 lbs, 5 weeks after having entered this world.  There is no such thing as neonatal intensive care here in the bush, and Raabi has been unable to nurse, aside from having been very sick with malaria.  The baby is now gaining weight, slowly but surely, so they were given permission to go home across the river today, knowing that being at home, and not in the hospital, will help Raabi get better.  She will continue her malaria cure at home, being well past the crisis stage.  When I dropped them off, she already was sitting up and looking much better. Please pray that she will be able to nurse little Yusufa, and that both of them will be blessed by

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.
