Hooray! Someone who knows their stuff is helping!

How thankful we are that CEFA again has a Fulani cowguy, I’ll call him I.H.  Because of the tense political situation up ‘til now we have had a couple of local villagers taking care of the cattle that knew absolutely nothing about cows!  Since there are currently many herds of cattle being grazed by Fulani around our farm and there are more and more Fulani coming for treatment at the mission hospital, we are trusting that relations have improved enough to insure safety for our cowguy to be with the herd 24/7.  As soon as he got on the job, he hand picked all the ticks off the livestock and medicated them as well.  Perhaps now the herd will grow instead of slowly but surely diminishing.  Please pray that I.H. will be okay as he tests out the work, and eventually sends for one of his wives to come live with him on the farm.  Please pray that he will understand how much God loves him.

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.
