There are lots of different ways to celebrate!

Our grandson, Sawyer, and I both celebrated birthdays this month.  Sawyer chose wild and crazy (he’s the one with the goggles)blog bdays

and I chose shopping – first at an amazing farmer’s market with a marvelous view over a gorge

and then on to the mall.  Yes, don’t let the nature picture fool you, I chose to go window shopping in a huge mall, I ate yummy green curry for lunch, and we all went home tired and happy.  The main thing in common with our two choices, though, was that we did it with family and friends.  What could be better, than to celebrate with loved ones?  I got a bit overwhelmed as I read emails and facebook messages, feeling so very cared for, knowing that the Lord has blessed me beyond expectation.  I am a rich woman, gifted with family and friends, health and strength, and the best present of all, God’s grace.

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.
