Watch out! Durians are in season!

This durian reminds me of the puppy who sits at the very edge of the boundary you set – not in and not out!

Seriously, you do not want to be under a durian tree at this time of year!  Aside from the attack on your sense of smell, you do not want to get bonked on the head by one of these spiny, heavy fruits.  Roy, of course, is absolutely loving this time, eating a durian each day, sometimes with friends, sometimes all by himself.  He discovered that if he eats a bite of plain cookie with a bite of durian, it’s like durian pie.  He knows he might never have a durian pie baked by his wife, even after 46 years of loving marriage.  A person has to draw the line somewhere.

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.
