Roy’s farming colleague and tropical plant co-enthusiast, Avril, recently bought 150 trees from the Back 2 Eden nursery.  This was a boon for Roy, who now, at least temporarily during lockdown, has no way of distributing the trees.  Whenever they get together you can count on at least an hour’s discussion about bromeliads and jackfruit and who knows what!!  Avril suffers with Lupus, and being vulnerable, we hold her up in prayer that she will not come down with the virus.

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.
