Back online!

It’s been a long while since we’ve had access to regular internet, it’s great to be back in touch! Lots of things have happened since we last posted something, but because our internet is still very slow and because we are, as usual, very busy, we’ll catch up one day at a time! Just for your amusement, you can see today that the termites around here don’t take a rest or go offline, they just keep building, different types of termites in all sorts of ways!
First, here’s a corner in our bedroom by the door that leads directly outside. Normally the termites’ tunnels run flat along walls, but does this one make you think you’re in Zion and Bryce or Natural Arches Park or something? After taking the photo, I realized how very badly our bedroom needs a paint job, but remember this is Africa!! We clean up termites like this inside the house pretty often – our walls are old mud brick and the termites love that, eating the wood supports and then happily making their way up or over or through the mud and cement. Yikes.

Here’s a typical out-in-the-garden type of termite home:

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.
