Snake in the house!

Thankfully Zweli, the farm manager, was nearby when a snake was discovered curled up in our house!  Roy was down at the nursery tunnel, unable to move very fast with his sore hip.  Zweli couldn’t hurt a fly, so he carefully picked it up (it’s non-poisonous) and let it go down the hill.  Never would that happen in CAR!  Any snake or even anything resembling a snake, like a millipede, gets obliterated immediately, regardless of its venom or lack thereof.

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.
