Fast food

Here’s one of the “fast food” places in the town across the border. There are 4 guys/counters that share one big room and we go there every Monday to have a bite to eat after we’ve done our lessons & visits. The menu is on the chalkboard and you can buy omelettes and avocadoes, which is my usual choice, but you can also get beans and spaghetti noodles, coffee and tea, and sometimes mysterious sauces out of those big pots lined up next to the thermoses on the right in the photo. You have to kind of close your eyes to the dirt and pray bigtime over what you eat! Roy buys grilled meat from some guys just outside this eatery – I hesitate to write restaurant, but I guess that’s really what it is. We are thankful for the possibility of having lunch there, and everything is usually very tasty.

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.
