Colorado siblings to Plymouth

My sibs, Paul, Janet, & Kristen, came for a short and delightful visit.  Maddie and I picked them up at Union Station in Chicago and we were hosted by dear friends, Rog & Eileen Thorpe for a night before driving back to Indiana.  Why not just make the short 2 hour trip the same day, you ask?  Paul especially wanted to visit the Art Institute!  While waiting for the museum to open we visited Millenial Park to see the giant silver mirror jellybeanP1010085

and of course were mesmerized by the crazy reflections – shortened, two headed, whatever!blog jellybean

Paul & Janet were sweet to be around, they are such a tender caring couple, an inspiration to remember to pay attention to your spouse’s goings-on!  Here Paul’s helping to shade the camera as Janet snaps a photo for a honeymooning couple from sibs4

Flying in Georgia O’Keefe’s Sky over Clouds…Paul and our sister Ralleau and I used to play a game called Masterpiece, and most of the art in the game is hanging there in Chicago. It was great fun to walk through part of the Art Institute and get excited about the familiar pieces, to see them up close and be amazed at the creativity and detail and work that went into each flying at the Chicago Art Institute

In Plymouth the Grand Aunties & Uncle connected wonderfully with the girlsblog sibs3blog sibs4blog sibs1

Janet really liked our little sun room, knitting away and enjoying the light and the sibs2

We spent hours playing and sharing, and in spite of the snow and cold visited Josh’s school and a bit of Amish country. We are so thankful these three made the trip!  Thanks, Paul, Janet, and Kris.  We are blessed that we are good friends with our family in this crazy fragmented world.

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.
