Goodbye, Jean Claude! You will be missed!

Jean Claude is to Roy’s left

Oh, Roy’s best sports buddy has just moved back to Bangui, after about 15 years of work at the mission hospital’s garage and print shop.  He has always been ready to play basketball or volleyball when Roy shows up at about 5pm after a long day’s work.  They have been known to play just one on one, as well as welcome all ages and strengths into the games.  We will miss Jean Claude’s out of the box thinking, his energizing accordion playing at church, and mainly just his warm friendship.  He will be missed.  Please pray for him and his family, especially for his young adult son who is currently in and out of the hospital with brittle diabetes.

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.
