Walking down memory lane

Putting all the pix in chronological order…as best I could

Fortified with chocolate, Roy plowed through all of Dad’s slides

One of the tasks we need to accomplish while in California is to digitize Mom’s years and years of artwork and photo albums, loose family photos including some dating back to the 1800’s, and Dad’s slides.  Roy’s guessing that he went through about 10,000 slides, ending up with about 700 to copy – I’m pretty amazed that he didn’t end up with more!  All this we aim to get onto a google shared album for the whole family to enjoy.  As we go through these treasures, we are delighted over and over with memories and touched with awe at the gift of artistic talent that runs through both sides of the family.  We already have Grandpa Chet’s etchings copied onto our computers, but we discovered one none of us had ever seen before.  It has been fun to walk down memory lane, to rediscover our precious family history.

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.
