Just before we left Gamboula, the egrets came swooping in.  I haven’t actually paid attention to see if it’s an actual migration routine, or if it’s just random, but we periodically get to see flocks of egrets in our front yard, walking along in their group, pecking at bugs like chickens, or flying around and perching in tall trees.  They normally hang around cattle, maybe one or two egrets in the midst of, say, 20-30 head of cattle, so this occasional invasion by a whole flock is very fun to you, Lord, for the random gifts of your creation, the things that make us pause in awe and smile.

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.
