Old is good

This little old lady, who looks like her arm could be broken as easily as a toothpick, is very full of energy and spunk!  Roy was surprised to see her working hard in her ag co-op’s garden, enthusiastic about growing food for her family.   When I see friends like her, and I see my own husband who is no longer a spring chicken but runs around like he’s 30, and I think of our folks who are still going strong (Roy’s dad just turned 90) it makes me pause to give thanks for their presence in my life.  It also causes me to want to make sure each of these loved ones knows I appreciate them, that I am so very thankful for their love and influence in my life.

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.
