The Montrosians

What fun to be with Janet, Paul, and Erin.  Laughing, telling old family stories, playing Boake Carter, Star Reporter and Pit, and eating Janet’s amazing cooking!  Erin was able to come hang out with us, leaving her family in Colorado Springs for a few days.

We hiked a short path up to lovely waterfalls just outside of Ouray, after browsing in the shops alongthe main street.

As if we hadn’t had enough yummy food and family fun, Janet made pelmeny, a marvelous Russian sort of ravioli.  Oh my oh my, cheese and onions and vinegar make it one of my favorite dishes. Others mess it up with sour cream and dill and such, and Roy even put hot sauce on it!!!!  Yikes!!!  Our Russian grandmother, Baba, used to make it, along with some other yummy ethnic dishes like piroshki, etc.  Gene, in the picture below, is Baba’s son, and dad to my half-sis, Kristen sitting with him.  If you say the word pelmeny anywhere in the Grand Junction and Montrose, CO, vicinity, I’m thinking that Gene will be at your doorstep, he loves the stuff as much as I do!   Janet is a trooper, making the pelmeny one by one, taking about 1/2 day to create what gets demolished in 15 minutes!!  Thank you, Janet!! And Kris, too, for making delicious borscht!

???????????????????????????????We had a great time and it was too short!  Thanks, Lundeens, for everything!

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.
