The “People and Gardens” group’s visit

Wow this has been a very busy week for Roy, working with the gardening group from Cornwall, England,  People and Gardens, (click to see their website).  They are a group for helping people, specifically those with special needs, to help themselves with dignity, and they came to our area to take part in a few of the Genesis Hope’s programs.  Roy and another volunteer here, Tim, worked along side them in the establishment of grow bags (which they knew very well from England) and planting fruit trees (which was a new thing for them) at the training center’s garden plot.

They came out to the Back 2 Eden farm for a visit and a meal,

and were able to go to a nearby special needs school and a nursery school, to plant trees and interact with the kids.  Roy had just started working with the special needs school, but the nursery school is an established contact, and he was very pleased to see trees growing and a new veggie plot to help with.

Our visitors were a sweet and energetic crew and it was a pleasure to be with them.  Please pray that their time with us made an impact on their hearts.

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.
