Visit to BB’s village

Roy & Kim were able to make an overnight visit to BB & his wife, S.  BB & S left CAR in haste back when serious trouble hit their village.  They lost an adult son in the turmoil, besides their home and farm and orchards, but they keep on with living out the gospel among their co-refugees, while living now in Cameroon.  Their village in CAR was very unique in that Fulani and local tribespeople worked together and lived in peace.  The peace part was common before the war, but the “work together” part was unusual to see.  Normally one would see definite neighborhoods of each religion/tribe, living peacefully but separate.  Roy & Kim saw firsthand the work going on in the transferred village, and had many delightful conversations and experiences during their short stay.  Roy was especially encouraged by the drive and desire of these villagers to help themselves.  Development success stories!  People hearing about God’s love!  Yes!

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.
