Journey mercies

We are so thankful to be back at home, after having flown and driven for many, many hours.  The welcome was/is overwhelming!  Everyone has made sure first that Roy has recovered as they have showered us with ear to ear smiles, forehead bumping and handshaking (the official and polite greeting), and even some bearhugs.  Our long trip was uneventful, not even a flat tire.  Roy had pulled his back badly on Monday, but he was able to drive all day Saturday, through rain and very bumpy, muddy roads on just Tylenol.  Thank you so much for your prayers, especially in view of the wrecks we saw along the way.  Here’s a logging truck mishap we are thankful not to have been close to when it happened!

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.
