After church meal

Last Sunday, May 26th, which was supposed to be Mother’s Day here, our little church family out at the farm decided that we would have a meal together.  We had a guest speaker, Pastor M, who often does CEFA farm’s devos in the morning when Roy doesn’t.  The guest speaker was reason enough, but it being Mother’s Day added to it, so we prepared a nice meal of manioc/gozo with a sauce of meat and greens.   Oh I do love gozo!

It turns out that they have postponed Mother’s Day ‘til June 8th or so.  Curious, but they postpone holidays often, even their Independence Day can often be postponed a week or two, most often to accommodate some bigwig’s travel plans.  We had our meal together, amidst happy chatter and the good old-fashioned joy of being with friends.

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.
