Cyber cafe under the trees

blog cybercafe

Most of the time in order to get online, read: have the Google page even load up, we have to go across the border in order to be right under the cell phone tower.  We can do email almost every day at home, but there in K-town, we can take care of all the online business the world says we need to, such as documents/spreadsheets related to our work or finances or blogging.   There are times, too, when we have to go in order to just send and receive email. Of course you have to add the necessary attention to mental health, so there just might be a peek at the grandchildren and friends on Facebook or chatting with our kids in South Africa via Whatsapp.  In the states we all get used to 4G or is it 7 or 8G now?  We’ve already been gone a couple of months, so I imagine great strides are happening, but in our neck of the woods, 2 or 3G is lightning fast! Anyway, we’re so thankful we go to a peaceful spot away from the hubbub of the town center, under a shade tree or even in the little sitting room at the Catholic mission, to create our own little cyber cafe.

But guess what?!?!  Today, Saturday morning, I’m posting this from our living room!  Oh we are thankful for connection with y’all!

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.
