Visiting Creighton, South Africa

While Roy was in South Africa, he had the marvelous opportunity to go on a trip with Sam & Anna’s cell group to visit the little town of Creighton.  The interesting thing about this place, other than the fact that it’s Gill’s (cell group member) home territory, is that it is the site of the first Catholic mission in South Africa.  The group rode on a narrow-gauge train through aloe covered hills to the mission.  The church is still active there, and they also have a lovely museum.

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.
