How do you spell healing?

A place of peace to run to, to wrestle with stresses and losses (not belongings though that also was involved,, but relationships, security, ministry, and the like) and let them go as we find rest and energy again as precious gifts from the orchidExcellent medical care with a price tag of less than $400 for an emergency room visit for a new cast (acrylic now after two old fashioned plaster failures in Cameroon) with follow up visits to an orthopod with 2 sets of xrays all included!!  There was a chance for a need for surgery to place a plate and screws on the forearm, but thankfully the healing has gone well enough and the slight lack of range of motion shouldn’t be a kids signing

Last but not least, Samfam!!!!   Being with Sam, Anna, Elaina, and Sawyer is a delight for our hearts and balm for our weary souls!

blog braai BBQ delightThank you so much for your prayers for us and for those we’ve left behind in CAR for the time being.  We are not sure how long we’ll need to be in South Africa – at this point it looks like at least to the end of November.  We are hoping for the best and a return to be with our beloved friends and ministries, but only time will tell.

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.
