Making masks

Front: Sam, Anna, Sawyer Middle: Elaina, Maddie Back: Roy, Zweli, Aleta

With the advent of Covid19, we faced the problem of needing masks though there were and still are none to be purchased locally.  We decided to sew some ourselves, following the pattern developed by our farm buddies Lynn and Gary.  Gary is the director of a uniform factory and now has contracts to sew masks such as these. There is a pocket for a special filter material, and one is meant to boil the whole mask after a day’s contact with the outside world.  Now we have a bit of protection when we go out for groceries or meds.  Our hope and prayer is that this virus would slow to a stop, that those who mourn the loss of loved ones would find peace, that those battling right now would be healed, and that the rest of us would be protected.

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.
