Helping hands

We are blessed with friends who have all sorts of know-how.  Some can weld metal frames for solar panels, others can fix crazy problems with our truck, some can help us with sudden medical problems, and still others bless us with words of encouragement, stories, and prayer.  Sometimes we pay for these aids with money, sometimes with a Tupperware of cooked manioc leaves, and sometimes just a thank you and a smile.  We are grateful to be surrounded by community, in the best sense of the term.

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.
