When it rains, it pours!

I’m NOT complaining!  Really!  We just got done with opening, checking, sorting, and shelving 203 cartons of meds and supplies, and two containers from Sweden arrived and were ready to unload.  Here are a couple of photos from our busy day and a half dealing with just getting the ocean shipped containers’ contents out and into the storerooms.

The semi then had to drop off the two containers next to our garage fence.  The grass proved too slippery and Luke tried to pull him with his Toyota, but to no avail.  The Dyna truck showed up with a load of manioc, and that added weight helped the little truck pull the big truck across the wet grass.  Now we have the two containers on the ground, and the garage crew will work on getting cement footings set up so that they will be up off the ground and away from mud and termites!

The inside of the storerooms are crazy mazes of supplies piled ceiling high.  We had to be careful not to stack things too close to the lights.  Now begins the job of sorting and labeling and getting things out and used!

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.
