On trucks and cars and things that go

CEFA farm’s new acquisition, a Dyna 400!  We are excited, it’s a workhorse of a truck!  The old Dyna has been out of commission due to a lack of available replacement parts – it is a different model, with right hand steering.  This one needs some work but Luke Turk and Augustin should have this bigger, stronger Dyna up and running soon.  We need it for hauling workers, plants and trees, gravel for road repair, water for thirsty trees when the rainy season isn’t being quite so rainy, village trips, and the list goes on…

Meanwhile, down in South Africa, a whole different world in many ways, the need for trucks and cars to run well and the need for people to be touched by the love of the Lord is the same. Titus garage, the repair center come to life from Sam & Anna’s dream, specifically to train and disciple young people, is up and running full bore.

When we visited last week, we noticed that they have a line up of vehicles, waiting their turns, a good sign – this means people are hearing about it and bringing their cars in!  Sam and crew are thrilled to be of service to the local community in so many ways!

Waiting for their turn with Alan, Mthandeni, and Sam

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.
