A dear friend has passed away

Hajja J, mom to some of my closest friends, and my own dear friend since our arrival to CAR 21 year ago, is gone.  She went to meet her Maker on Saturday.  She will be missed, her smile and warm welcome and oh so quick wit.  She was dearly loved.  I was able to be with the family on Monday at her oldest son’s home.  The place was packed, for Hajja was the middle wife (one older and one younger still living) of Chief T.  Big family!!   Oh, the tears with each greeting, mixed with joy in the reunions.  I was able to see and visit with many I haven’t seen for a long time, sorrow and smiles all together.  May the Lord have had mercy on her soul.

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.
