We’ve moved!!

Don’t go changing our address in your files, it’s still the same, at least as snailmail and email go, but we have moved out to our new home at the CEFA farm!  Thanks to help from many – here are a few of those who made our house a wonderful and cozy place to be:

blog YaoubaYaouba, who made all the curtains and cushion covers, sitting at the hospital sewing machine, listening to the new testament being read on the Proclaimer in the window.
blog fix it man blog carpenter Hilaire

Hilaire, the carpenter, and Roy for touch-ups, have worked on the cupboards and all the furniture and woodwork
blog Antonio flowers

Antonio has planted and taken care of flowers and veggiesblog Serge welder blog plumbingSerge, Kim Cone, and Roy have worked on the plumbing – this is our hot water heater: we build a fire in the brazier on the shelf under the little black barrel, and voila, hot water for dishes, warm water for our showers!

We are so very thankful for this wonderful place to live, and you probably can understand this, feel guilt at being so comfortable when our friends are fleeing.   We hope to use it to be a welcoming place, a home where God’s light shines.

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.
