A visit from Paul Noren and Carl Elwood

When you get a visit from Paul Noren, you better be prepared to be entertained by stories and little known facts and fun little ditties that come to his mind as you talk.  He and Roy can talk hours about trees and fruit and farming, but I always enjoy the walk down memory lane – Paul & Sheryl have been our best friends and colleagues since 1978 when we first started in Congo DRC (then Zaire).  Paul came with a long time pastor friend of theirs who, with his wife, are hostel parents in Yaounde this year, Carl E.  Carl had some fun stories of his own to add to the conversation, from experiences in China and Alaska and even just Cadillac, MI.   We had a lovely week with the 2 guys, and now they’re on their way back to Yaounde.

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.
