Green beans and water storage for the shantytown soup kitchen

Tozama and Melita make soup or stew 4 days a week and they are excited to have their water tank finally close to being hooked up.  There are days when they cannot cook because the water supply is cut off, but now, after Roy puts up the pipes to catch the rainfall, they will have a more secure water source.

They are also thrilled to have veggies growing in the yard, and have already used spinach and now are starting to use the green beans in their delicious and nutritious stews.  We picked the beans together, and I got called aside while they continued picking and then went in to the kitchen.  We had a good laugh when I went in with two more handfuls and motioned how the beans were hiding from them.

It is so fulfilling to be a part of this vital ministry, to take part in helping and healing and sharing God’s love.

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.
