Another hitchhiker?

Well, not exactly.  We picked up the chameleon, below, on our trip to Yaounde, but we went to Yaounde to do some shopping for construction supplies and to  pick up Timothy Chapman, who has come to be with us for 2 years, as a ReachGlobal missionary, to help with agricultural outreach. We have known his sister, Marcie, and his family, for many years dating back to Congo/Zaire days, and we are excited to have him join us!  He seems to be a soft spoken and intelligent guy,definitely raised in Africa! so I imagine he’ll adapt quickly and be a great asset to our team!

Timothy/Timothé with a good-sized jakfruit

One thing, though, we have to call him “big” Timothé (French spelling for Timothy, pronounced something like tee-moh-tay).  We have 3 guys here with Timothy on their birth certificates, but thankfully Tim Wester goes simply by Tim.  Then we have Timothé Turk, so I’m guessing we’ll have some mix-ups along the way.  We have quite the set of names to mess with your head here; we’ve got Tim & Kim, and we’ve got Jan & Ann & Leanne, and now we’ve got the 2 Timothés.  Fun, fun, fun!

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.
