Happy Thanksgiving!!

Yes, it’s snowing here in IndianaHappy thanksgiving!!
and this Gramdee’s heart is full to overflowing with thankfulness. Thankfulness for grandchildren, thankfulness for Skype to be able to be communicating with Roy at Gamboula – he had a great Thanksgiving, complete with turkey even!, thankfulness for our loving God and Saviour, hey, I’m even thankful for the snow! It’s nice to have this freezing cold touch for a few days, to enjoy Josh & Kimia’s amazing woodstove heated coziness, especially since I know I’ll soon be headed back to Africa. I leave on Tuesday, and I’m not looking forward to the goodbyes, but I’ve had a crazy wonderful month with our Indiana family!

We’re thankful for each of you and hope and pray that your celebrations with thankfulness for the Lord’s goodness and gifts to you have and/or will be full of joy!

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.
