Zweli, the farm manager, and Roy’s buddy in all ag work, had a birthday this month!  We took him a cake and sang happy birthday to him and he was blown away.  Just over a cake and a little loving attention.  He is like that.  His common expression that we all love to hear is “Wow!”.   His voice is quiet and like his manner, gentle.  His “wow” is subdued, by our loud standards, but the wonder runs deep and shines out of his face and eyes.  He often says wow as Roy shares from God’s word each morning, and you can tell he’s caught the meaning as he animatedly translates from Roy’s English to Xhosa for Sbabalo and Loyisa.  He is a loving family man, taking care of those in his home, and he is a hard worker, eager to get things done and done properly.  We love this guy and find it a gift to have him as our friend, brother in Christ, and work colleague.   Please pray for Zweli and his family.

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.
