Kids are kids

A few days back we woke up to the local church youth group playing drums and singing, songs about their faith in God. They were having a big ol’ early morning youth meeting, and when we went outside to get going with work, this is what we saw on the grass in front of our house:

Taking a closer look when they all stood up, looks like they’re all gussied up with clay from the river bed. Reminds me of when Josh & Sam would take charcoal from our sentries’ firepits and decorate themselves. When I asked the kids “why?”, just in case there was some spiritual meaning, they said, “just because it’s fun” and “because our leaders did it when they were young”

Be it with mud, charcoal, clay, paint, you name it, kids will be kids!

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.
