to South Africa

Soon Nadege & Benoit will see the Indian Ocean!

Hooray!!!! Roy, Nadege (CEFA village co-op supervisor), and Benoit (CEFA director) are going to South Africa!!!  There will be a Covenant World Relief conference in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, May 21-27, and they are to be participants.  Nadege and Benoit travelled east to CAR’s capital last month to get their passports renewed.  The challenges of road travel east are many, and it can take a few days to get 350 miles! They succeeded in getting their passports and now they are in Cameroon’s capital, which is a full day’s or sometimes more travel to go 350 miles west, why?!?  Because that is the closest place to find a South African embassy.  The paperwork to amass and forms to fill out were daunting, but they now have their passports with S. African visas in hand!   Thank the Lord!  Please pray for Benoit over the next 3 weeks as he prepares his presentation for the conference, at the same time he is supposed to be leading a week’s worth of church meetings and wants to fulfill promises to village co-ops as he carries on his normal work for CEFA.

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.
