It is amazing what a morning of worship and prayer with friends can do for your attitude.  Roy & I were blessed to take part in just such a time with the CEFA contract workers on Friday.  There were plenty of tears and some outright sobbing as people shared the prayer concerns on their hearts.  Many expressed concern for Roy & me, mostly for security and peace of mind.  Many asked for prayer for the country, for their children’s health and schooling, for peace among family and neighbors.  I was undone, to understand the love flowing in that room, to hear the desire of so many to follow the Lord.  We are blessed to be here, at just such a time as this.

Thank you for praying, for we know that your prayers were instrumental in bringing about this meeting of hearts and mutual encouragement.

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.
