Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

As we celebrated the Messiah’s coming with only part of our birth family (you can see Josh and Kimia and their girls in the photo next to the Jesus candle), we couldn’t help but be thankful for blog-jkmme-w-us

the families God provides for us wherever we are.  Over the years we have been so very blessed to have close friends, sometimes family, to share life with.

Sometimes they are so full of life and joy and God’s love that it just washes over you and soothes the ache of being away from the ones you grew up with.  Lynn & Gary have made their home ours.  Totally.  Unreservedly. With abandon.  We are so thankful for the huge part they play in our kids’ lives and now can call this home sweet home and get a glimpse of what the future holds for those who believe.  Just a glimpse, ‘cuz we’re not really home yet!

We hope and pray that your Christmas was joyful and that your New Year is blessed!

PS Check the long silver ponytail on my shoulder!!! New hairstyle, eh?

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.
