First fruits

Things are growing and beginning to produce at the Back 2 Eden farm!   The jakfruit trees are growing beyond their wind protection sacks.

The  dragon fruit are blooming and we’re getting lemons, from a tiny tree!

As the unusual fruit start coming, we’ll be giving taste tests to see if we can get people excited about growing them themselves.   Sometimes they’ll like it, sometimes not.  I’m not sure Gary was especially excited about the taste he had from the strawberry tree.  At least it wasn’t a durian!

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.
