Hurray, medicine for the hospital!

We have waited a long, long time for these meds to arrive via ocean freight container.  Thankful that the main pharmacy stock is almost up to par again.   There is a back order and we would ask prayer for that container which should leave Holland sometime soon.

This is the container, having arrived in Douala months ago but held up by paperwork.
blog container IDA Here we are checking our list to make sure the boxes all were there.  I have never seen a container unloaded so fast!   Of course it wasn’t even close to being full, but it only took 45 minutes from the cutting of the customs lock/official seal to the closing of the container door again.  Did I mention that we handled this container unpacking right in the midst of the wedding/graduation weekend of busy times?blog med container

Here’s the smile we like to see on our main pharmacy manager’s face when he doesn’t have to tell the doctors and nurses, “sorry, we’re out of that!”!blog container 6.14

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.
