It is good to get news from a foreign land.  While we are in South Africa, our dear friend and director of CEFA sends reports for Roy to translate and turn in to U.S. donors.  Along with the reports come photos so we get to see what is happening and what we will soon go back to.  These 2 photos are taken out in the villages, showing the people involved in ag co-operatives.  What makes these so special is that there are very few co-ops functioning.  Too many of the villages around our town have become ghost towns, with gardens, farms, and orchards abandoned.   People have fled to our town and other peaceful havens where they might have family or friends to take them in.  We are always happy and thankful when success stories, stories of hope, come in.

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.
