Progress is slow but sure on our house out at the farm

Planting and other construction have been a priority recently at the farm, but cupboards and bookshelves and windows are all being worked on, slowly but surely by one carpenter, at the two Covenant houses.  We would not have been able to move out there yet, anyway, because of all that is happening in the country, but we do look forward to the possibility in the future.

Here's our little future home.

Here’s our little future home.

The yard is beginning to look decent, and we now have a place to park our truck when we can bring it across the border.  The truck you see there is Paul & Sheryl Noren’s vehicle, parked for safekeeping until it can be repaired.  It was badly damaged during the looting last March, and I am tempted to call it Luther, as Paul’s father in our Congo days called another ailing truck: “here I stand, I can do no other”.  Smile.

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.
