A root canal at Christmastime???

The good news is that Roy’s getting rid of his mega toothache by having a root canal in Yaounde. The bad news is that he won’t be back home until Monday the 28th. It’ll be our first Christmas apart from each other. Roy is with friends, and I’ll have Swedish guests for Christmas day, and this whole week is full of activities ranging from communion and baptisms in the local church to a white elephant gift exchange. We’re thankful that the terrible pain will come to an end.

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.

    Having had my share of root canals, I will be keeping my dear brother in prayer! Also, for you both having to be apart this Christmas – bummer. May the Joy of Jesus be yours and bind all of our hearts together!
