Walks at the beach

Under level 4 of South Africa lockdown, we’re allowed to take walks within 5 kilometers of home, only between 6-9 am.  We’ve recently had some lovely walks along the coast, the Indian ocean stretching out to the horizon.  I’ve been hoping to see the whales migrating, but it is a bit too soon; the locals say June is the main month for them to head north to warmer waters.  We do see all manner of wildlife, including dassies/rock hyraxes and this pair of wooly neck storks.  We are grateful to have nature and beauty all around us, grateful for the freedom to enjoy, even for just a few hours each day.  Level 3 begins for us June 1st, and we expect to be able to go out for walks anytime during the day, but I believe the 8pm-6am curfew will still stand.  You can see that we are chilly – winter is upon us.  As most of you who are reading this are heading into summer, we are getting out our blankets and jackets.  Please pray for the unemployed and the vulnerable as they face Covid19 and  the cold winter with few resources.  If you would like to participate in donations of food and necessaries to those who are struggling, you can give through Abounding Hope, our shantytown connection, or our church

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.
