Call the phone repairman!

Okay, so the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed that our phone signal has been weak.  So, what do we do?  Call the repairman, right?  Nope.  Roy gets up on the ladder and tweaks the antenna back into position while I yell from the inside of the house when the reception bars peak their highest.  Kind of like playing the warmer-colder game with a partially deaf guy.  I’m not sure Roy needed the guy holding the extension cord, but, why not???  I’m definitely glad for the one steadying the ladder.  Then comes the trick of finding the right adapters and the right drill bit and the right bolts to fasten the antenna’s position more securely.   Thankful we are, for good cell phone reception!  I’m guessing that that big storm’s winds somehow shifted the antenna out of whack.

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.
