Repairs, always repairs

We have 4 trucks and a bazillion motorcycles, but because of the horrible roads, overloading, and lack of a nearby AutoZone, there is only one truck and a handful of motorcycles working.   We keep on keepin’ on, limping along until the correct parts come from the big city, which is a long day’s drive (10-12 hours) away, or even from the U.S., Sweden, or Dubai!  We are so thankful for capable mechanics and for the parts that do make it to us, and we’re looking forward to when our buddy/missionary colleague/CEFA volunteer mechanic Luke Turk gets back to Gamboula at the beginning of September.  He has been sorely missed and I know he’ll enjoy eating peanuts along with the guys as they work!

Note the peanuts in amongst the parts and tools!

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.
