Timothy and Jessica

We were so excited to be able to see this precious couple make their vows, on April 4th, to spend their lives together.  Timothy was such a great help and good friend and next door neighbor out at the CEFA farm 2013-2014.  We went through all kinds of challenges together, including lightning strikes and evacuations…  Jessica is a bubbly, sweet friend we met in Yaounde a couple of years ago.  We treasure their friendship and pray that their marriage and future are blessed and joy filled!blog TLC wedding1

One of the perks of having driven down to Springfield, MO, for the wedding was to get to spend some time with our buddies, the Turks!

An MK, (missionary kid), Elaine Smythe, from Zaire/Congo who is close friends with Jessica’s family, was kind enough, along with her husband, Gary, to host our motley crew.

We had great fun catching up with these friends, and swapping stories with our hosts as well.  One of the games we played – when we’re with the Turks, we always have to have an emergency fun night!!! – was a jellybelly game.  If you get a chance, DON’T play it!  You might have to eat a black jellybelly, tasting either like licorice or skunk!!! For me, either one is bad!

Anyway, well fed with all kinds of treats from Elaine, and very well filled with friend-connection-joy, we headed back to Plymouth on April 5th.

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.
