Last times before we left!

Last time to repair that cuh-razy internet system.  This repair job meant cutting off the plastic shield on the feed horn receiver BECAUSE sunbirds had seen their reflections and pecked holes in the plastic, thinking they were fighting off their mortal enemies!  The holes allowed moisture in and then a bit of algae formed around some of the bigger holes; probably not a good thing for a delicate system, right? blog feedhornSo we put on a piece of plastic file folder, secured it with marine glue which Roy happened to have because he had made his own aquarium a few years back.  Not something one would normally happen to have on hand out in the bush in Africa, and we can’t just run to a hardware store!??????????????????????????????? Last chance to plant trees??????????????????????????????? Last chance for Roy to wander around the gardens and orchards with best buddy Paul to check out how huge everything has grown, to see what’s flowering and what’s fruiting??????????????????????????????? Last chance to hug a tree in CAR – this happens to be the biggest banana plant Roy has ever seen

???????????????????????????????Now we’re in the states, ready to catch up with old friends and meet new ones, done with the last minute things of Africa and moving on to the hellos and greetings in the U.S.

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.
