What to do

Anna had to take a picture of me coming home from work on my first day – it actually was the first and last day of “work” for 2016.  Everyone’s on holiday, because it’s not only Christmas, but summer vacation for S. Africa!  I went in to the Genesis center and met with Lynn in the admin office and Sue at the small hospice center to discuss the possibilities of how I might help come the new year.  I would really appreciate prayer for how I might best use my time.  I’m looking forward to helping with mundane tasks that pile up, but I am hoping for plenty of time just being with patients, especially those that don’t have family and friends to visit them.  There may be a language barrier some of the time, but we’ll see how it goes.blog-first-day

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.
