While we are safe and happy…

a dear Fulani friend and her grandbaby, safe and not hassled because they live across the border


For the past month there have been major skirmishes in the east of the country, click here for news article and here’s another one.  Though we definitely do not agree with the media’s general assumption that the militia/anti balaka are Christian (they are merely non-Muslim), the overall picture described seems accurate and heartbreaking.  We just heard from friends at Gamboula’s mission hospital that there was an incident there that resulted from long underlying misunderstanding and hatred.  We ask “when, dear Lord, when will it end?”  Please keep praying, trusting that he holds our future and that he dearly loves each one in this conflict.

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.
