Celebrating birthdays, celebrating family

Sawyer’s 12th birthday, with his traditional donut cake!   His party was a guys only camping overnight with buddies,  complete with lots of hotdogs, a potato gun/rocket, and another birthday cake, this time a regular chocolate cake.
I had a huge!!! lemon meringue pie – that was yummy!

It is a marvelous gift to be able to “do” life with our South African kids.  From everyday stuff to big celebrations, these are the frosting on the cake that is ministry for us here.

Elaina & Sawyer & Noni too, with their home made paddles in their thrift store boat, on the reservoir on the farm where we live.

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.
