What a way to spend your school break!


Bobby and Timothe Turk brought 3 friends home with them for their 10 day school break.  Nuri, Ben, and Caleb rode over bumpy roads for untold hours, squished into interesting seating arrangements, putting up with heat and dust and fumes, all to spend time with their friends at Gamboula.  They did have alot of fun, swimming in the river and playing board games, but they also helped out at the hospital, putting in hours for their school’s required public service credits.blog-kids-on-schoolbreak blog-coloring-with-the-kids-at-the-nutrition-center-2

Bobby and Timothe, with the help and supervision of John & Sam H, took time to wash their dog.  I think they had a great break, and they are already back in school today, Tuesday, Oct.11.  I think back on when our two sons were the two ages represented in this photo, and I can’t help but be grateful for all their amazing experiences growing up in the African bush, mostly positive but certainly plenty of negative, that have helped them grow into wonderful young men of God that they are today.blog-bibe-bath

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.
