Megan Duplessis Center

Just down the road from us is a learning center for special needs youth.  It was established by the Duplessis’, whose daughter Megan was a very special young woman with special needs.  Their search for the perfect site, a farm with a place for a school that their daughter could attend and still be “at home”, ended with a perfect solution after years of prayer.  Sadly, Megan passed away at the tender age of 17 and never saw the school, but they continued with their vision, in order that others with difficulties could benefit from the learning center.  It is run and staffed by some amazing people, and we have had the privilege at our Back 2 Eden farm to be involved with the center in many ways.  Roy and Zweli have taught and planted there, and the senior class has come to the farm to volunteer and learn.  This week they learned about different kinds of soils and composting, and they filled nursery sacks and planted seedlings.  It is a gift to be able to share, however we can, with all who God puts in our paths.

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.
