When something is over the top, people on the south coast of South Africa say it’s “hectic”.  This photo below is what you call hectic wind.  We use 6 clothespins for one towel, and even that sometimes comes undone.  Imagine what that wind does to little seedlings and saplings!

Roy is delighted to have the nursery tunnel shade cloth up, which not only protects from hectic sun (white section 40% sunblock, green section 80% sunblock) and hectic rain (helps it to come through as mist rather than cats and dogs).  He is in process of getting all the plants under protection now.

We have in mind that this development will be called Back to Eden, focusing on helping people to be blessed with fruit of the land and fruit of the Spirit.

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.
