Workers and music

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go,…  except they’re not singing the seven dwarves’ song, they’re listening to some cuhrazy music on their phones.  Seems like music helps us get the job done, giving us energy and even enhancing our surroundings.  I clearly remember the first time I put a praise tape in my little cassette Walkman (yes, probably 35 years ago!) and listened as we drove along the road from Loko to GbadoGboketsa.  The moment the music hit my ears, it was as if the colors in the landscape around me got more vivid, the outlines sharper.  I am thankful for music – most types, anyway.  I am thankful for the way music helps me feel close to the heart of God.

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.
