Nursing school ready to go!

The nursing school on the Gamboula mission has its official opening this week.  There has been lots of preparation, from course prep to light fixture replacement, but here are just photos to give you an idea.  The students are in a retreat for two days, learning about putting on the armor of God, and there will be an opening ceremony on Saturday morning, complete with government dignitaries in attendance.  Please pray for the students and the teachers, that the school would be a place where God’s presence is very evident, that the students would learn not just to treat patients’ physical illnesses, but that they would learn to love and care for them with tenderness as well.  May the Lord be glorified!






Of course, we had to practice a little with ResusciAnnie, here’s Annelise running for help for her friend in dire need! LOL!

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.
