Always surprised by God’s creativity

A fancy bromeliad, that Roy planted

Queen Anne’s Lace that came up on its own, we didn’t even know it grew here

I’ve stepped on this snake, or its brother or sister, 3 times now  in the past month or so.  We have seen quite a few of these over the years, but only recently have I been stepping on them.  They like to spend the night under our patio door – there is a strip that keeps them from coming into the house, but the door is hollow and sometimes when we try to catch them to throw them out into the orchard where they maybe can catch moles for us, they escape up into the door.  Yes, it’s a lovely little thing, right???  You can bet that when I step on them, my next step is up onto a chair on the patio while screaming for Roy to come save me.  LOL!

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.
