Last days in South Africa 2

Leaving our little South African family was easier this time, knowing we’ll see at least Sam, Anna, Elaina, and Sawyer, and our stateside loved ones soon – in July when we head off for vacation in the U.S.

We managed to squeeze in lots of “lasts”.  Last day at the beach, last meal at a favorite restaurant, last games, last BBQ, last taste of one of Roy’s weird fruits, etc.  All these last times are super memories and we call ourselves blessed.
We rest assured that our kids and dear friends are in the Lord’s hands, and we’re thrilled to have been able to live and work and play alongside them.  We’re excited about Anna’s nearing completion on her master’s degree and Sam’s ongoing ministry at Titus garage, enabling young men in technical skills and spiritual growth.  Sawyer and Elaina are doing well in school with plenty of friends. We leave our farm family in a place of joy and peace, though not without its challenges!

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.
