Tea Party, anyone?

Oh my did we have the time of our lives, with our Maddie as the center of attention for her belated birthday tea party at the American Girl Cafe in downtown Chicago!  It was a gift to have this possibility to build an awesome memory to cherish, to remember when we’re having a spot of homesickness across the ocean over the next 3 years.

We drove up and spent the night with dear friends Barb and Steve Swanson, with our buddy KB added to the mix!  We girls rode the bus and the train and had a blast.  Here are a few photos from our trip.  The guys and Maia joined us the next day at the zoo, more memories!

Sophisticated downtown shopper/crazy wonderful 5 year old!

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.
