Last days in South Africa 1

Wow, Roy the energizer bunny was going full steam those last few days in South Africa.  He tied up a lot of loose ends, but also has left quite a few tasks in the hands of Zweli, the farm manager.  Zweli will be busy with the macadamia crop already existing on the farm, but he does have more help than usual right now.  Please pray for him to be able to direct work while he keeps up with all his usual other tasks on the farm .  He and the other 3 workers are thrilled that Anna, our daughter-in-law, will continue on with morning bible study.  That is way cool!

Same slope, different viewpoint, of coffee seedlings, planted, and protected from wind and critters, with grass cut in between

Framework for shadecloth, still to be put up, to protect the plastic water tanks from sun damage.  These tanks hold water from both rainwater from roofs and pumped up from the dam at the base of the orchards.  They hold the water for keeping the nursery tunnel plants going, as well as for the irrigation system to the fruit tree orchard, as well as the system yet to be laid to the coffee plants

Roy and the guys organizing the fruit tree seedlings for delivery and planting at the schools in the local township Ready to go!

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.
