Making quilts

Maddie is showing off her new nail polish.

Thankfully we made the trip to the fabric store before lockdown!  The girls have their chosen seshoeshoe material, a fabric specific to South Africa, and they each are making a patchwork quilt.  Since we can’t be out and about, and if school is done for the day, you might find the sewing machines a buzzin’!  What a boon to be able to use three machines at once; Anna’s machine and Lynn’s two that she had stored in her cupboard for ages.  One was her mother’s.  We are putting them to good use.

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.
