Still in the dark!

Well, I posted our prayer requests but left out a REALLY big one! We still are limping along (since the end of November) with just a few hours of power and running water each day. We have heard that the new generator that is being modified to work with the turbine here is about a week away from being ready to ship from Europe! We hope and pray that we might have the turbine up and running again before the end of February! It’ll be fun to have romantic candlelight for Valentine’s Day, but it’s not so romantic to try to fulfill needs at the hospital or even do office work at home by flashlight. Thankfully our technical team has wired the hospital so that the operating room and key areas in the hospital have light whenever they need it, but many areas function with flashlights or kerosene lanterns.

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.
