Behind this door and so very many like it, a family of anywhere from 4-10 people might live in one room in the huts of the Masinenge settlement.  This particular door is the threshold of the home of the grandma I have spoken about previously, taking care of 7 grandchildren under 6 years old, with the help of her 16-year-old daughter (who is mom to one of the 7).  When I think about the 7000 people living in this shantytown, so many of them vulnerable in so many ways, and how the virus could just sweep through here like a plague, my heart breaks.  I’m praying for protection for these hurting ones, that God would show mercy in a miracle.

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.
