Special moments in Lesotho

These first ones speak for themselves, moments of joy with the kidsblog seas 9 blog seas6 blog seas3 blog seas2blog seas4

I confess I do like cats better than dogs, but I don’t think Everest the cat is playing fair here, such a tease!blog seas1This was a super fun gathering – we had a meal at a Congolese family’s home.   Sam & Anna have become quite close to them, there are MANY Congolese in Lesotho, surprisingly, and we spent a fun evening eating Congolese foods and speaking Lingala.   Well, we (Roy & I) actually did more listening – what a joy to watch Sam interact with these friends in the language of his childhood!blog seas9In this playground, you have to watch out for the wandering emus.  I had one thump me on the head with its beak as I was getting off the merry go round.   These crazy birds are used to people, and they make the most wondrous drumming sound deep in their throats.

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.
