Suture anyone?

Has anyone ever told you about driver’s ants’ back-up job when they get tired of running in marching formation eating everything in sight, live or dead?  They will give up their lives to be suture – if you line them up properly over whatever it is you want clamped shut, they’ll chomp down and they’ll lose their heads before they’ll let go.  I once had a hitchhiking driver’s ant’s head on my flipflop – I’m not even sure how long it had been there before I noticed it.

Here’s brave Timothy Chapman, taking the pain of these pincers so you can see how it works!

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.
