So that’s an ocean?!?!?

Nadege and Benoit, along with Josef R., our Covenant missionary Africa regional coordinator, came to stay overnight at our kids’ home, before continuing on their travels.  It was great fun to show Nadege and Benoit the Indian Ocean, their first experience with a body of water they couldn’t see across!   They tasted the salt water and played in the waves with the kids.

They saw the farm where our family lives, with horses, dogs, and cats wandering around the yard.  They tasted curried beans and apple crisp with cream, as well as waffles at the waffle house, and got to interact with our friends and family. They bought souvenirs for their families from the beachside sellers.  If we were to judge by how much they were smiling, I’d say they had a wonderful visit.  BUT, they had to suffer through sleeping on cold plastic chairs in the Nairobi airport not once, but twice; coming and going!  They are back home at Gamboula, safe and sound after having traveled many miles through airports and countries that speak only English!  Thanks for praying for these dear friends.

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.
