Okay, who brought the cold weather?

We had to travel from Seattle to Spokane last week, and when Keith G. loaned us his car and his wife Florence started talking about chains, we NEVER dreamed we’d actually have to use them!  After all, the crocuses were blooming in their front yard!

Well, we got to Snoqualmie Pass, and sure enough, the snow was falling and the wind was blowing, and the digital traffic signs were telling us all kinds of things that we didn’t want to hear about!  So, Roy put chains on the car, his first experience with chains.  Once he got them in place, we waited a good hour or so for the crazy chainless cars to be towed out of their logjam mess ahead of us up the mountain.   The scenery was breathtaking, but we were thankful to get to the other side of the Cascades, I can tell you!

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.
