Visas! Hurray!

blog visas

This is week old news to those who follow our kids’ facebook, but we are rejoicing because our Samfam got their South African visas!  Thank you for praying.  It was quite the patience building experience for them.  While Roy & I were waiting outside the offices, we saw a young woman sobbing on her phone, saying that she hadn’t received her visa and that it would be another long wait.  Later on that morning, after some paperwork at the local police station, I was waiting in the car and Anna popped in, crying her eyes out!  My heart dropped but she immediately reassured me that these were tears of joy!  Even Sawyer’s papers, which they were told were missing, were there!

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.
