Christmas a tad late

We just picked this envelope up at the post office today.  The photo is of the Danforth/Baker reunion for Dad’s memorial service at Lake Collins last September.  He loved that Lake and he loved ice cream, so we celebrated that together.  Roy’s sister Lynn mailed us the photo in a fridge magnet frame on Dec. 6th, as a sweet Christmas gift.  We’re thankful to have it – this reminds us that we are still in Africa, where packages and letters seem to take forever to arrive, and sometimes never get to their destination.  It also reminds us to treasure our memories, to be thankful for our families and to keep each one of our loved ones in our prayers!

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.
