Whoo hooo!!!!!!! We are up and running with decent speed internet!!!!

Well, it isn’t a new species of tree amongst the nursery sacks, it’s a satellite dish in our back yard!  The dish was donated to us from generous friends in N. Cameroon, who had switched to a different system.  After a series of crazy messed up events involved in sending a new modem for it via UPS to Yaounde, we have the system up and running.   We are so thankful to our Cameroon based friends, thankful to the internet company in Canada who handle our new account and were SO very helpful and gracious and generous when the customs on the modem got all mixed up,  thankful for our very own resident geek squad in the person of Josh Shinar, (thanks!, thanks!, thanks, what, does this sound like I’m accepting an Oscar???)  but most of all, we are thankful for the Lord and his blessings, big and small, and this is HUGE!   Roy can watch sports, live! now!!!   We can Skype with our grandkids!   Yipppeeeeeee!!!  Thank you to all of you who helped pray this into happening!

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.
