De forestation!

The tree next to the carport was starting to lean, the soil around the base cracking as the roots were beginning to let go.  Roy decided to take it down before it took the carport roof and hood of our truck out of commission.  So, up the trunk he shimmied, wielding just a hacksaw.  You can imagine the prayers going on when you take into consideration Kim Cone’s catastrophic fall 2 years ago and Roy’s, when compared to Kim’s, almost not worth mentioning.  They both fell, with chainsaws running. Kim ended up having neck surgery and will probably always be impaired in neck movement, and Roy came away thanking God that he only had a couple of flesh wounds.  So, Roy’s initial trimming of the tree, up in the branches, was by hand. 

It’s a done deal now, with no injuries!  Yay!

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.
