Yikes, a night visitor!!!

There I was, peacefully reading by flashlight under our mosquito net at about 4am because I couldn’t sleep (sound familiar, all you over 50-ers?) when out of the corner of my eye what do I see? A millipede. He wasn’t rolled up like in the photo, he was tooling along on his crazy little bazillion feet, when all of a sudden he stopped, with shock I suppose, to see a huge white creature and a light in his path! Totally harmless, but a bit disquieting, to say the least. I keep thinking about how he got up there and what if I hadn’t been awake??? Ick. We find them in the house frequently, and they conveniently roll themselves up so that we can kick them out the door like a hockey puck. They slide very nicely across our smooth cement floors. She kicks, she scores, and the crowd goes wild!!!! Wheee!!!

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.
