On our way home to CAR

The airplane trip from South Africa to Cameroon was not as smooth and peaceful as we hoped it would be, but we made our connections even with delayed flights and we got all 3 pieces of luggage, just a day late.  Roy had purchased a South African tshirt in the airport, and our hosts here in Yaounde, Ron & Janet Z, offered us anything we needed, including shorts and underwear that fit Roy perfectly!  We are thankful for friends in Yaounde, for warm welcomes and taxi-ing here there and everywhere with our buddy, Moses.  He made the trip out to the airport the next day to pick up our luggage, and the officials wanted him to unlock our bags because any suitcase with a lock on it is sure to have something contraband hidden away inside.  Smile.

We leave for Gamboula early tomorrow, Wednesday, March 21.  We succeeded in checking most everything off of our checklist of errands and shopping, and now off we go, with Timote Turk riding along home for his spring break from school.  Thanks for your prayers for journey mercies.

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.
