Zimele Wethu visit

Roy and I, plus 3 reps, Sim, Jess, & Nicoline, from Genesis Hope (the community outreach org that our family works with in S. Africa) went for a visit to one of Zimele Wethu’s communities.  Led by Audrey Matimelo, Zimele Wethu is all about creating self-sustaining communities, and the group of women we met with that day are fulfilling that vision.  blog ZimeleWethu (74)

We found that they meet in small groups regularly, and then send reps to their “cluster group” which we attended.  There they are held accountable for their projects and shared funds.  blog ZimeleWethu (7)

This particular group has many projects going on, but they consider it of great importance to take the time to make sure there are visits to the sick to encourage the families.blog ZimeleWethu (31)

Their projects include, but are not at all limited to: raising poultryblog ZimeleWethu (48)

growing vegetables and fruitsblog ZimeleWethu (58)

and even running a decorating service and catering meals for special events.blog ZimeleWethu (96)We were inspired by the commitment and growth within this incredible ministry.

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.
