Celebrating Jesus’ birth

It’s summertime in S. Africa.  School has just finished and families are heading off for summer vacation.  Businesses slow down and tourists fill the area, in spite of the great white sharks roaming about in the nearby ocean.  Because of this, Sunday school at our kids’ church had their Christmas program before everyone took off for parts unknown. They took over the whole service, with prayers and welcome etc. We thoroughly enjoyed the play, especially 2 certain narrators, a Magi and an angel.  Sawyer was in front of a bright window so we didn’t get his sweet face, just his silhouette I know, I know, I should just use “that setting” on my camera for dimming the background…oops.blog-xmasblog-nsc-xmas-6blog-nsc-xmas-5blog-nsc-xmas-8

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.
