Jeff S. is our field accountant, and he recently ran an internal audit on my CAR bookkeeping.  Since Roy and I are the only Covenant missionaries in CAR, one of us has to be treasurer.  Guess who gets the job?  Roy gets to be the country coordinator, so I’ll take the treasurer position any day!!  Dealing with 3 currencies with their bank and petty cash accounts with their varying exchange rates are enough to make me go crazy, but Jeff is always understanding and patient, helping me navigate through what I don’t understand.  I must say the same about our mission’s main office accountant and dear friend, Gretchen D.  I confess I love to put numbers in their proper boxes in order on a spreadsheet, but these two help me to wrap my head around the bigger picture.  I thank God for the unique gifts he gives each one of us!

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.
