A weekend getaway

We decided to overnight at a privately owned game reserve not far from the Durban airport, before we had to go drop Leanne and Timote off for their return to Cameroon and C.A.R.  We woke up to this view out our windows,

enjoyed biking and seeing all manner of wildlife – no predators but all sorts of antelope, zebra, warthogs, and giraffes,

and we found out we had a zebra whisperer in our midst.  Leanne would sing “This Is My Father’s World” to the zebras and they would let her get closer and closer!

We are thanking the Lord for his creation, for a chance to be with friends and family, and for his amazing love!!!

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.
