Dave is on his way home

Dave is in Yaounde, getting ready to fly home to California, starting Sunday evening.  He was pleased to be able to help out in many ways, but I think this might have been his favorite job.  He put back together this table saw that the Turk family and Roy & I had carried up in pieces, 50 lb. pieces, from South Africa.  Roy & our son, Sam, couldn’t pass up the deal on this sturdy old machine, and Luke Turk kindly took it apart and bundled it into jet plane acceptable baggage.  I think there must have been at least 7 pieces carried up to Gamboula!  Roy has holes in a couple of his t shirts because I mistakenly thought the tshirts would protect our suitcase from the bag of bolts and miscellaneous joint metal!

Thanks, Dave, for coming and helping and being such an encouragement.  We’ll miss all your stories!

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.
