Who is this? Tweedledum?

No, and not Tweedledee either. It’s not a pregnant lady, it’s our buddy Benoit, keeping his backpack dry in the downpour. We had 6 inches of rain Friday night in a heavy downpour, and then 3 inches on Sunday in a lighter longer rain.
We had had a crew of guys scrubbing about 12 years of gunk off of our corregated tin roof the previous week, and one of them had inadvertantly stepped on a small fiberglass section that lets light onto a walkway between our house and kitchen. Wouldn’t you know it, rather than the big 6″ rain pouring down onto the walkway, it decided to make a river down the underside of the roofing and onto the kitchen ceiling, warping the plywood and dripping down the light fixture – probably not the best nor safest situation with 220V current, eh?

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.
