Solar panels and new pump in at the CEFA farm

See the water tower in the background

We just got word that the solar panels have been installed at the CEFA farm in CAR!  This is great news, as this new system will be much more powerful and CEFA will no longer have to run a gas fed motor a minimum of 5 hours/day to pump water!  What a savings this will be!  We are thankful to Water for Good for helping us get the equipment and installing it.  We are thankful to those who contributed to CEFA to make this possible!

We hear that at this point in time there is no sign of Covid19 around Gamboula, so the CEFA staff are continuing with their farm and village work.  We hope and pray the virus never reaches there, it is so very remote but there is a main logging road that runs right through the town and they are on a busy border with Cameroon.  May the Lord have mercy.

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.
