We have an amazing night watchman out at the CEFA farm, who, in my opinion, is worth his weight in gold. He’s a cheerful, energetic, and caring man. He’s responsible for the locked gate and all the buildings in our immediate surrounds each night. Thankful is what we are, for this guy!
But what about other places on the CEFA farm property, like the cattle? Sadly, the cattle have become a side casualty to the exodus of our Fulani friends. Our little herd of 11 has now dwindled to 5. This photo has 6, and I’m not sure which one of these was lost to sickness recently. We have substitute cattle caretakers, but through no fault of their own, they don’t have the experience and knowledge of the Fulani.
Then there are the crazy turkeys, whose eggs are big and very attractive to cobras. We have lost many turkeys to snakebite (we think), so now we have this lovely couple:
I, for one, am thankful that I don’t have to put my trust in geese, but that I have help from above –
He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you.
