Exploring Boston

We are in Connecticut for a few days, sharing at Woodstock Covenant, and we had the opportunity to sightsee in Boston. It was a busy Saturday, but we had great fun walking on the Freedom Trail. I was especially touched by the Holocaust Memorial – I couldn’t figure out why they had it there at first, but there were a few poignant  paragraphs about freedom including this statement: “As you walk this Freedom Trail, pause here to reflect on the consequences of a world in which there is no freedom – a world in which basic human rights are not protected. And know that wherever prejudice, discrimination and victimization are tolerated, evil like the Holocaust can happen again.”
Today we saw different pieces that played parts in our nation’s birthing struggle for freedom, and I was reminded again of the price many have paid for the freedom we enjoy today.

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.
