Thank you Woodstock ECC, Connecticut

Oh my goodness!  Again we were blessed and overwhelmed by the care of friends, old and new alike! Here are just a few of the hosts who took care of us so wonderfully.  We stayed in Woodstock for 10 days and were invited to share a meal in at least 11 different homes.  We enjoyed hearing their stories as well as getting them up to date on the doings in C.A.R.  I picked up some wonderful new recipes and added some serious prayer requests to our list.

At Dan & Maria O’Neill’s, we enjoyed some awesome Thai soup and swapped news with their family and a couple of friends from their small W Dan n Maria ONeill Pieter and Martha Nijssen kept us laughing as well as connecting with us on our common ground South Africa W Pieter n Martha Nijssen Dan & Karen Breault, caring and generous to the nth degree, kept us warm and fed and also provided wheels whenever and wherever we needed W Dan n Karen Breault Art and Nancy Loefstedt (sorry Nancy I didn’t get you with your eyes open!!!) also kept us warm and fed and provided a car.  Roy tried fishing in their back yard, sorry, no bites!  We found out, our last night with them, that they love games as much as we do.  Next time!blog W Art n Nancy LoefstedtThank you, friends at Woodstock Covenant for an amazing week!

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.
