Timothy, Tim, Aleta, and Josh

We’ve been blessed with our own personal nerd this past month.  Last week, he gave a few of us classes every afternoon, so we can try, and believe me, the operative word is try, to troubleshoot our satellite internet problems once he disappears over the western horizon.   He will join his wife and 2.5 year old daughter on Wednesday and head up into Fulani territory in Cameroon.   He gave us a test on our last day, and he was kind enough to say he was proud of us, but we sure went around Robin’s barn just to resolve the 2 broken areas he had set up for us.  I’m excited for them, that they’ll be experiencing a different place, with some believers among the Fulani.   They plan to finish out their term, which ends in May 2014, and then head to the states for about a year of prep to become long term missionaries and then there’ll be a year of French study, and THEN they may rejoin us.  Please pray for them as they adjust to new surroundings and meet new friends in a much more isolated situation than what we’re used to here.

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.
