The magic of Gramptree/Grampadee/Bucky

Is it the love of being outdoors and having someone to play ball with?  Is it that he always shares his ice cream?  Is it that he likes to have helpers in the garden or building a lizard cage?  Is it that he doesn’t mind wearing necklaces or Easter hats and having bows in his hair?  Is it that he’s got a touch with a crying baby? Is it that he doesn’t mind sharing his lazyboy or reading a book to them? I think they just know that he loves them, quietly, surely.  Not boisterously or even super warm and fuzzy, but a guaranteed, quiet love.  He is blessed by a quiverful of granchildren, who call him by many names, the latest of which is Bucky.

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.
