Moving already???

Yes, we are still in the states until June 4th, but due to a crazy schedule for Roy’s dental work, we ended up packing and moving all big furniture and lots of heavy boxes over to our storage container in our kids’ barn.  Roy will not be in Indiana again until June 1st, one day after our lease is up on our sweet little rental home on Center St.

Ruth & Walt Wolf came down from Grand Rapids to visit and help, and boy did they get put to work!  We did get some time to just chat and catch up – and Walt helped us with some computer questions as well!  blog moving5blog moving4


Our daughter-in-law’s two brothers, Collin & Jordan, responded to our request for help as well,  Collin was just a couple days’ post-op wisdom teeth extraction, so he wasn’t supposed to lift much of anything (we won’t say here how much he followed that instruction), but he was a great help anyway with his truck and his banter!

Roy had to crawl into a tight space to encourage the mattresses to crawl in with him!blog moving

The 5 guy crew did a great job of arranging and packing our things, with the help of Roy’s pickleball playing friend’s fork lift.  blog moving3

Done in record time, they helped Josh a bit with  some chain saw work and a bonfire!  Who can turn down a bonfire??blog moving 7blog moving1We are blessed to have willing helpers – we couldn’t have done it on our own!  At least not in a few hours!

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.
