Unrest continues, in spite of peace talks

Twice over last month, our Fulani cattle caretaker, “I”, had to move the cattle off the CEFA farm to safer pastures, as the bandits/rebels of months’ past are back again.  I’s wife and children have now moved back across the river, tired of moving back and forth and living with the impermanence and insecurity.  Oh how we long and pray for a day when this can be over with!  How we hope for the different peoples of CAR to live in peace, for them to be able to farm and work without fear of robbers or worse.  Please pray with us, will you?

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.
