Walking down memory lane…

Here’s the married students’ apartment building we lived in from 1975-1978.  Our kids, Josh & Kimia, lived in the very same building on the very same floor, 20 odd years later!  It was brown then, and we are amazed it still stands, in spite of its new paint job.  We keep hearing rumors that they want to tear it down, but there it was, big as day, when we wandered around Davis this past week.blog Davis days gone byI don’t know what happened to the quaint downtown Davis that I used to know.  Most of the little shops are now restaurants.  Sad to see.  I have to say there are still a few of the old favorite places, like the Artery (art gallery) and and a couple of book shops and a toy shop…  I’m thankful for good memories of how it used to be.

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.
