Keeping busy in a lovely way

Our son, Josh, teaches AP history, and he asked Roy to be available as counsel for his students who are working on mock development projects.  They had to choose and issue and a country, and work through all the possible twists and turns such an endeavor might entail.  Roy was able to give them insight on what we have lived through in Africa, and he fielded their questions.  He was pretty excited about it!  When I asked him about his plans for the day, he said “I’m teaching at Culver today”.  He was thrilled to pass on some knowledge and hopeful that it might be used well in the future.  He didn’t hold back on the Jesus part of it either, and though Culver is a secular school, it does have a mission statement that includes the building up in educational, physical, and spiritual fields.  It was lovely to see him happy to do something on the computer, as he spent alot of last week translating CEFA reports and trying to get clarification by email etc about questions he had.  Sitting at a computer doing that kind of work is not among his favorite things to do.

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.
