Long ago and far away

Upon arrival to Yaounde, we were fed a yummy meal by long time buddies from Congo days, Carolyn & Jeff Stoker.  It was so good to catch up on all their family and work news.  Then we spent the next couple of days hanging out with Sheryl and Paul Noren.  Again, hearing all about family and work, sharing meals, and just being able to be with these friends who live so far away.  We share a rich history, and plenty of stories that even with our frequent repetition still make us giggle.  Precious friendship is a gift that keeps giving.

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.
