When you hear bad news like this:


about the country you’ve been praying for and hoping to go back to, or when your GPS says you’re hovering over deep water and it needs to replan

blog replanning

or your car catches fire and you have to call 911 while you watch it go up in flames (we passed by this on the Oakland Bay Bridge, poor guy)blog replanning2

then it’s time to cry out to the Lord and be thankful that your future is in his very capable hands.  Thank Him for the bad and the good, as it stretches you and/or delights you.

blog replanning3How sweet it is to be home again in Indiana with precious princesses!! Please pray for us as we watch the news from C.A.R. from this comfort zone.  Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom about our return to Africa next May.  There are some things that we have to take care of soon that will be effected by where in Africa we return to.  We are resting in God’s wise “replanning”, if that’s what is up ahead.  Please pray for C.A.R., for peace and understanding to reign.  Please pray for our friends and colleagues, some of whom are in Bangui, some in Gamboula, and some just newly evacuated from the capital.

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.
