Thank you!

As we travel about and see friends and family, it is hard not to be overwhelmed.  This past Sunday we were at the main Covenant church in Lafayette, Indiana, a church that began supporting us, just because; really out of the blue. We spoke the week before at the Beverly Covenant Church of Chicago, that, by extension through a common friend who is a missionary, has been praying for us for years. We didn’t know anyone at either place, but when we walked in, we were welcomed and treated like long lost friends.  Greetings and smiles and hugs and meals abounded.  At Beverly on the 14th they provided me with a bouquet for Valentine’s Day, and yesterday there were folks there with such servant hearts, making sure Roy & I had our tea and coffee while we spoke to the Sunday school class.  We are confident of these dear friends’ prayers and care for the heartAs we carry each of you in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers, we thank you for doing the same!  We hope and pray that each of you realizes that you are in the heart of the capital S Someone!  That the Lord loves each of us so very much that He gave His son for us.

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.
