On cattle and our friends

Checking for ticks

The Fulani love cattle.  They feel so comfortable right snug up against bulls, cows, or calves.

While our kids make mudpies, their kids make cattle heads.  Many of our friends have lost their cattle, their livelihood, while others are still grazing theirs a LOOONG way from their homes.  Some are fighting, right now, to keep their cattle safe from thieves, and many have been wounded and some murdered because of the high value of their livestock.  Please pray for peace in C.A.R., for safety for Muslixm and non-Muslixm alike.

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.
