Beauty in winter, but there is hope for spring

Wow!  We had an icy rain and snow and oh my it was gorgeous around here.  It’s so nice to be inside and warm when it’s so cold out!  We know we have months more of winter, but spring will come.  We have hope.  We are thankful for blessings when so many are facing health and financial problems.   We just volunteered at a food pantry this morning and heard that there has not been a marked increase in people needing help there during this Covid era, so for that we are thankful, that our county isn’t as hard hit as some.  We are praying for mercy for this world of ours with so many mourning and so many struggling with Covid and its far reaching effects into people’s livelihoods.  We have hope that God will hear our prayers and that we will come out of this, that the winter will end and spring will come.

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.
