Please keep praying for PEACE for CAR

We are encouraged as we see more and more Fulani cattle herders around Gamboula and the CEFA farm.  Thankfully there are clear boundaries so that the farmer and the cowman remain friends!  We are encouraged as we hear news of a handful of Fulani men moving back into their homes in “downtown” Gamboula.  We are encouraged as we see a continual flow of Fulani patients able to safely come and receive treatment at our mission hospital.  This is our state of affairs in the far west of CAR.  It is another story entirely in the far east of CAR.  Skirmishes still are breaking out, people are being killed and wounded, and chaos still reigns in the rebel held east.  Thank you for your prayers for peace and reconciliation.

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.
