If a friend suggests…

Okay, the next time a friend suggests that you place a damp, cool, well and of course never been used tea bag on your stitched up gums where you just had a tooth pulled and a bone graft placed, DON’T LISTEN to her!!!   Well, you can listen and politely nod your head, but DON’T DO IT!  Even if she says her dad just had the very same thing done the day before and the tea bag worked wonders!!! PLEASE DON’T DO IT!! blog dont listen (If anyone in Dr. Brewer’s office is reading this, just forgive this poor confused girlfriend, k?)  I kind of ended up drooling tea leaves because the bag broke!!!  I was not allowed to spit, so there I was with the only option being pouring water in and letting it drain out on its own, hoping that the tea leaves would go with the water.  Wrong.  So, I dabbed tea leaves out with the gauze (that was really the only thing that was supposed to be against that new wound) Please don’t worry though, I’m fine aside from mooing occasionally and when someone offers me tea, I just ask for a cup of hot water; there are probably some stray tea leaves hanging around, plenty for a cuppa!

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.
