Visit from UN troops

We had a nice visit with two UN officers the other day.  They came from the main town to the east, where they are stationed, to patrol our area; sort of a fact-finding mission.  They had a pick-up full of armed Congolese troops along with them, destined this week to return to Congo.  The officers did not know what country their next troops would come from.  They were quite pleasant and wanted to know how we were doing and what we had heard from towns north of us.  They got out their phones and took pictures, which they shared with me.  It is very good to know that they are there, trying to make sure things continue to be safe and peaceful in our region.

Please keep praying for peace for C.A.R.

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.
