What??!? A GPS in Africa?!?!?

blog GPS

We were trying to get directions from a friend to drive up north in Cameroon, on roads we hadn’t been on before.  His printer was not cooperating, so he offered us his GPS.  What?  Yes, that little Garmin had Cameroon maps loaded in it, and it helped us out many times throughout our 3 full days of driving.  It didn’t have our stateside GPS’s little Hungarian grandma voice telling us not to go fast on the freeway because it makes her nervous, but it was wonderful to have along with us.

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.
