Safe child care and first aid for Genesis Hope’s baby home

It has been a privilege to go to Genesis’ orphanage and help the caretakers know some child care, first aid and what to do in an emergency.  They actually surprised me with what they already know, regarding safety and just basic child care.  They take care of a maximum of 12 little ones at a time, aged from birth to 4 years. The day I taught they were filling out the paperwork to take in a 2-day old that had been abandoned.  They have just found an administrator, so timely, as Candice, the substitute administrator, is heading to Cape Town at the end of the month to start her new ministry position there.  Please pray for these little ones and the ones taking care of them.  Please pray for families for these kids, for a good turnover rate for these homeless babies to be welcomed into families that will love and nurture them.  Check out the ElRoi Baby Home link

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.
