Kids and chores

Kids start helping out with adult sized tasks at an early age here, it’s just part of family life.  When I was a kid, I remember helping with the housecleaning and various chores, but my responsibilities were more to teach me responsibility and maybe to get a particular job done quicker, for example, painting the house, than to actually help the family survive.  Here, the work for a child might sometimes be fun, but mostly it’s about pitching in and helping with the huge work load just to keep a family fed and taken care of.

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.
