Our buddies, the Cones, heading stateside

blog Jan Kim

What can we say?  We so enjoy Jan & Kim Cone!  They are our colleagues in Fulani ministry, the parents of one of our daughters-in-law and therefore co-grandparents of 3 of our grandchildren, the ones we can talk to about anything, basically our dear friends in all that’s important in our hearts and lives.  Jan & Kim head for the states for a year’s home assignment at the end of May, and we will sorely miss them.  Who will Aleta walk with and solve the world’s problems with?  Who will join Roy in playing basketball or help him think through a missional issue?   Many’s the time when Kim has fixed something for us or Jan has treated us to her incredible cooking.  We’ll miss them as we visit with our Fulani friends, we’ll miss them just as we go about our everyday world of work and play.   Blessings and hugs to the sky to dear friends!

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.
