Small world

We had a lovely week at Turtle Bay Resort in Watamu, Kenya, enjoying God’s creation and his love for us.  Friends, worship, fun night, bible teaching, financial teaching – all added up to a wonderful time for us.

When we left the retreat on Friday evening, we were taken to Kamal’s guesthouse, to stay the night, before our 8am flight to Yaounde the next morning.  Josef, our regional coordinator, set up the overnight stay.  What a surprise when we arrived to see a painting of friends from one of our home churches!  We have prayed for Larry and Arlene Shipman’s missions trips to Kenya over the years, but we didn’t remember Kamal’s name, if it was mentioned to us.  He apparently has been their host for about 20 years now.  What a small world!

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.
