Are you sure we’re in the tropics?

blog 8 degrees

Yesterday morning at about 5 am the thermometer read 8 degrees Celsius, which is about 46 degrees Fahrenheit.  This isn’t right!  We had put my cute little Mary Englebreit fridge magnet thermometer out the day before and it read 6 degrees C and thought it was malfunctioning, so we tried a different one.  We are having really crazy weather!  I know, I know, some of you are suffering with temps in the minuses and that’s Fahrenheit, but this is ridiculous! 40’s in the tropics!  All week long!  I’m wearing a sweater and socks and long pajama pants under my regular clothes til about 10 in the morning!

???????????????????????????????Roy had to dig into his trunk for sweats, and Tom had to get out his good stateside jacket!

???????????????????????????????What’s wrong with this picture?  Here are Sylvie and Antonio, bundled up and feeling the cold, next to ripening bananas.  What a crazy world!

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.
