Missing Jan & Kim

As I visit with Fulani friends on both sides of the river border, one of the questions I hear most is “how are Jan & Kim?”  We all miss them.  They left plenty of souvenirs behind, some are tangible and might have their name written on them, like this chair, but the best are the ones full of love written on hearts.

Their jawleeru/gazebo in their backyard, once bustling every day with visitors, is now empty except for the occasional seeker of shelter from rain or heat.

Jan & Kim are in the states right now, searching for a house to call home, with plenty of woods and acreage for Kim and a good floor plan for Jan.  We miss them dearly.  Please pray for their adjustment to the states and for a perfect house to come available for them.

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.
