A truck and ocean freight containers arrived!

Right before we left Gamboula, the Scania truck (complete with crane which you can’t see in this photo) and 2 shipping containers (one specially cut to exactly take up all the space available on the truck’s bed when it was shipped) arrived.  There was a 3 month red tape journey for 3 of the hospital’s people to go and pick up the vehicle and its load.  At one point the customs and port officials unloaded both containers in order to verify that there were no arms shipments!!!?! being delivered to the local militia for the ongoing conflict in CAR.  You can see that the boxes are rather willy nilly, nothing like packed neatly to the ceiling in apple pie order as usual from Sweden.  The hospital is especially thankful for all the equipment and supplies and the national church is thankful for the truck!blog container

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.
