Mom’s paintings

Since we’re driving from California to Indiana rather than flying, we chose a few, well maybe more than a few, like, 12 or so?!, paintings by Mom to take with us to decorate our rental home for the year.  She said she was thrilled to have us take them, all but one having been stored for years and years, Dad said 30 years!  But that wasn’t enough, she wanted us to have one of a flower, so she pulled one off the wall, it’s a beaut!  She and I chose a seascape to take its place over the guest bed.  What a blessing to have a Mom with such talent and so generous and willing to have us abscond with her stock!

Dad and Roy bundled and padded them and seat belted them into our car for a safe trip.  Our new, well new to us, car is probably the smoothest ride we’ve ever owned.  So those paintings will feel like they’re in first class – we sure do, nothing compared to recent trips over bumpy roads in Africa, where we cover about 60 miles in 4 hours!blog moms pictures ???????????????????????????????

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.
