Orchard wind protection

The winds normally sweep through this area at great speed, but this year was the worst in recent history.  The winds tore off the previous bags (do you remember the white pig feed ones?) and did quite a number on all these little fruit trees, so our guys are replacing all the bags.  The rainfall hasn’t been normal either, and the pump for irrigating broke down, so these trees have faced a double challenge.  They amazingly are mostly still alive though.  Wait, mostly alive?  Better than mostly dead!  We will see how they do now, and see which ones flourish here.  Thank you for your prayers for our guys, Zweli, Sbabalo, and Loisa, as they learn a little bit more each day, in devotions, about God and their walk with Him.

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.
