Roy’s hip

Please pray for Roy, he’s suffering with deep pain in his right hip.  We are so thankful that we are going to South Africa and we already have an appointment for him with the top notch orthopedist who helped with Aleta’s broken arm and our buddy Timote Turk’s busted up shoulder.  We happened upon his offices by accident, but when we look on the internet, it turns out he’s one of the best in the region.

Roy will probably be using wheelchair services as we travel through the airports, though he’s toying with the idea of taking a walker.  He has very little pain sitting down, so he still gets around on his motorcycle or in the truck – it’s just walking or doing any kind of sports or exercise that zings that joint with a bone on bone click and pain.  He walks hunkered over, like an old man, and that relieves the tension on the hip that hurts.  Thank you for your prayers for him.  We know that many of you suffer from joint pain etc. and this just brings us to pray for you more!

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.
