Grateful and humbled by the generosity of friends!

Back in May, upon our arrival to Gamboula, I discovered that the central pharmacy’s computer was very sick, with a huge cancerous looking blob in the middle of the screen:

We knew a friend from our home church in Davis, CA, was leading a vet student team out to Cameroon, and she had offered to bring things for us in her baggage. I quickly sent an SOS to friends in Davis and they responded by sending a brand new computer with our traveling friend. She was kind enough to bring the computer in her backpack, which protected it from who knows what kind of damage.  Thank you again, Lorraine and Mike and Woody!

This is Mathias, the guy who runs the central pharmacy, with the brand new computer:

Doesn’t he look happy?!?!?  He’s not only happy because of the new computer, he’s happy because we are FINALLY CAUGHT UP on our bookkeeping.  I am his “technical counselor” and we have worked some long hours figuring out what we have and what we owe, getting things paid up and collected.  Dr. Tim Wester helped greatly with balancing our account with our main medicines supplier in Bangui.  I am so thankful to have the books in order, and just in time as the whole hospital system, under the Baptist national church, has an auditing team visiting this week from the capital!  Great timing and thank you, Lord!

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.
