The termites are coming out & kids are happy!

You pass by a group of kids, laughing and poking little sticks down termite holes, and you say “Thank you Lord for some extra protein in their tummies!” They gather the termites on the sticks, and they might eat them live – you have to bite them before they bite you – or they might roast them in a pan over an open fire.

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.

    I remember when I tried fried termites with you, Roy, at that little outdoor gathering of food vendors in 1981. They tasted like greasy rice crispies with some grit thrown in!
