Enjoying God’s creation

We have had a couple of gray crowned cranes and some Egyptian geese visit the farm recently.  It is great to be able to birdwatch from our backyard.  I’m thankful that the farm’s dogs don’t chase these big guys away.  They bark at them a bit, but they hesitate to go close and chase them.  Maybe they are daunted by that chilly blue stare and that pointy beak?  For whatever reason, we get to enjoy their presence.  Our God sure has an imagination!

Another bit of nature to enjoy – I hope this little guy (only a little bigger than my thumbnail) doesn’t think he’s camouflaged!!

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.
