Roy and Sam were on their way home when they saw this amazing bird, a Knyssa Turaco, sitting helplessly by side of the highway.  They stopped and picked him up, trying to figure out what was wrong with him.  They put him in a box (for his protection from all the dogs and cats on the farm) and gave him a quiet afternoon.  When Sam tried to release him that evening, he just flapped forward, but couldn’t fly off.  Another day passed and the bird couldn’t take off.  We asked around and got the phone number of a woman who had experience with helping injured birds to fly again, and when Roy was trying to get the bird out of the rabbit hutch into a box for transport, he scrabbled up and out and flew away!  Hurray!!  Guess he just needed a spot of vacation, time away from the hustle and bustle of his hectic life!

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.
