Backtracking – last goodbyes at the CEFA farm

Goodbyes are never easy, but we tried for some smiles and lots of good food to help ease the going!  These are the families of our two helpers; Antonio the gardener and Sylvie the chief cook and bottle washer!  We are so thankful for them, for their friendship and willingness to do whatever needs to be done.

Paul having a little fun with Antonio’s son, God.  Yes, his name is God, they pronounce it goad. Weird to us, but common enough, at least in French. We’ve known quite a few “Dieu’s” (God in French) over the years, though Dieu is usually a nickname/shortened version of Dieu-benisse/God last meal

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.
