At the Back 2 Eden farm


The good news is that dragonfruit and jackfruit are starting to come, and it is a wonder to see how fast some trees and plants grow, in spite of drought and winds that commonly are about 25 but can be up to 80 kilometers/hour.  Yes, imagine little trees trying to stand up to that!  And, planting and growing are happening all over the farm.

The sad news is that Jaydene, a friend who has volunteered with us in the past, won’t be able to come on as manager at Back 2 Eden.  She will keep on with teaching young people at a local skills training center, which is a very good thing, but it’s B2E’s loss.  Please pray with us as we seek to keep the ag project going and out in the community.

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.
