Another dear Fulani friend gone

We feel the pain of separation deeply when we receive word of a dear one passing away and there is no way we can just pop in and be with the family.  Since receiving word of H’s passing, we have tried numerous times to contact different family members and friends without much success.   H was a sweet, good humored but definitely opinionated little old lady.  She was my friend, and mother to A, who has chosen to be a Jesus follower.  I hope and pray that H understood in her heart of hearts that God loved her enough to send the Messiah.

H & H. H passed away earlier this year, and is on the left. H who passed away in November is on the right.

She was the oldest of Chief T’s wives, and now only the youngest wife, H, who happens to be my best friend, survives.  Please pray that those who understand about God’s free gift of grace would share the good news.

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.
