A visit to an ag co-op

How wonderful it was for Roy to be able to go with the CEFA ag team out to a village co-op  They went to help plot out their coffee orchard.  Roy learned a new method of squaring off the plot, using 3 meter length sticks tied in right angles.  He was amazed at how accurate the squared corners of the orchard were.  They visited the co-op’s veggie garden as well as the head guys massive bean and greens fields.  It was a great day for Roy – to see that there are still some co-ops functioning out there.  Most of the groups to the north, east, and south have fled the rampant thievery and anarchy post-major conflict.  Hopefully the UN will soon return order, so that families can go back to their homes and fields.  Please keep praying for peace and reconciliation in C.A.R.

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.
