We had a lovely time in Arizona last weekend, enjoying God’s creativity in the desert. Can you see the elephant and the mouse? These rock formations reminded of me of mushrooms and also of termite mounds in Africa!

Actually, don’t look to closely for the mouse – I don’t really see one.
Here we are in a Bayaka (read Pygmy) hut — oh no, it’s a Sonoran Native American’s home instead.

This saguaro cactus needs a tree doctor, and wouldn’t the small green cactus make a great jigsaw puzzle??

BUT!!!, the greatest thing about Arizona is that Josh, Lori, and Charlie (Charlotte) Shinar live there, and they are going to join us in Fulani ministry at Gamboula next year! We were so pleased to be present as their church blessed them as being sent ones from their congregation, and we also got to be a part of Charlie’s dedication service. (Sorry I don’t have a better photo – I knocked our camera out of Roy’s hand out in the desert and damaged it badly.)

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.
