Thank the Lord for protection!

The CEFA (ag project’s) truck almost went into the drink two weeks ago!  You can’t really see, but there is about a six foot drop into a stream underneath the log bridge that the truck is stuck on.  Thankfully it didn’t fall in, like our mission hospital’s  public health truck in the other photo.  It took Roy & Kim Cone and others a full morning to get to where it was (it took a full hour to drive 9 miles) and get it propped up and pulled out from between the logs.

Different bridge, different truck (our mission hospital’s public health vehicle), sadly different results.  No one was seriously hurt in this one, and thankfully two small children had JUST rolled down the window moments before  the accident so they were able to crawl quickly out of the upside down submerged vehicle!

We do thank the Lord for protecting lives!

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.
