You ever traveled with Roy Danforth??

You go somewhere with Roy, you have to expect greenery or seeds or SOMETHING that loves dirt, maybe the main reason being that I think Roy loves dirt!  He is at his happiest, digging and planting and weeding. These  particular plants were all in a trunk/suitcase and had been stripped of the dirt around their roots and placed in baggies by Roy & our son Josh the night before we left the U.S. Normally Roy would leave them in their baggies, their dirtless roots hanging tight until we would arrive to our final destination. This time, though, he was concerned because they were going to be almost a week without dirt and water, so he ministered to his plant friends yesterday. He found some good soil and has given them each a bit of comfort until we drive our 9 hours back home to Gamboula on Saturday.

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.
