Roy’s on his way right back to South Africa!

Oh, the poor guy has been in great pain and probably needs a root canal, so he’s heading to Yaounde tomorrow, Thurs. June 22, and will fly down to go to be with the kids and go to our dentist there in South Africa.  Please pray for him and his teeth problems, which seem to never end – I’m sure some of you can sympathize.  Why go all the way there?  This dentist is amazingly low cost for major fixes like crowns and root canals, and Roy had such a bad experience with the one dentist in Yaounde years ago that he is hesitant to try again.  So the cost of the ticket, at least half covered by the dentist fee difference, is well worth it.

While I was looking for a photo to post with this prayer request, I found this one and thought I’d add it in since Father’s Day just happened.  Even though he has probably passed bad teeth on to his kids, I am thankful for all the good things he HAS blessed them with!

My how we all have changed!!!   Now for the tooth photo, here with Paul Noren, both missing the same front tooth!  Thankfully he’s not having problems with a front one this time!

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.
