Back at home and very content

Our time with friends, away from work, in God’s creation, was extraordinary,

Cindy Pete Roy and Aleta in the old folks’ home 20 years from now

but it is SO GOOD to be home again,

even though we came home to face a blown out generator

and no antenna set up at our house for cell phone and internet.  Thankfully we have solar panels to run a 12v system for lights and computer usage, and there was still water in our reserve tank, so we were good to go!  We actually spent 2 nights at the mission first. In the meantime, Luke has done some rewiring to install a water pump purchased in Yaoundé,

and we have hooked up a smaller back-up generator.  We are borrowing the ex-Cones’/future nursing school booster antenna, and Roy extended our antenna pole way up high (yes we have a lightning rod running to ground alongside) so we now have at least cell phone reception and I can do internet on my phone!  So very thankful!!

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.
