Internet woes and joys

A Swedish friend recently sent us this card with a French caption. I’ll translate for you:

First, you click “Serengeti”, enter, then “satellite view”, enter, then “localize”, click on “gnu”, and then, on the menu, select “recently died”.

Hey, if vultures in the Serengeti can get good internet, what’s up with our system????  We had a few days of lots of time and some money invested when our official tech guy who sold us our current system finally came up with the solution.  This was after the challenge of “migrating” our main system with Covenant from google to outlook/ms office.  Yikes, the hoops we had to jump through for that to work!  Thankfully we have a couple of guys who walked us through the confusion very kindly and patiently.

We are thankful to be back online, and hopefully we can stay under our 5 G/month limit!!!  Last month it was adequate, so we’ll see now.  Maybe we can find some roadkill for supper for just a few kilobytes?

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.
