About time

WOW …. it has been much too long since I have shared life stories through cyberspace.  I was awakened early this morning by a mail from Budleigh, United Kingdom inquiring why I have been so awfully quiet the last few months. (So this post is specially for you Barbara Rainford!)  The last few months were […]

Caring means … showing up! Part3

Life and death are never separated in Africa.  It’s part of one event … and the space in between is lived within a communal space where survival forms a key component of life.  On this road of survival …. the church in Africa plays a key role within every village and community.Introducing visitors to the local church is integral […]

Caring means …. showing up! Part 2

One of the things students do well (accept for studying of course) – is playing! As is the tradition for the last 10 years or more our students take responsibility to provide an athletics meeting (the full show) with the nearly 280 school children in our bush school.  It is a huge event which includes […]

Happening right now!

Yet again I stand in awe watching the group in front of me.  Teachers, theologians, super accountants, mathematicians and believe it or not ….. even a para-Olympic athlete!  What do they have in common.  A deep love for the Lord and a deep love for humanity!  As so many times in the past we have […]

A place where everyone helps!

No it’s not paradise.  It’s not even a hidden civilization!  A Mozambique school ……  is a happy place. It’s a place where every time when I arrive the more than 280 children makes me feel like their president. And I like that.  It’s a place where they jump all over me and want to hold […]

Charlie 9 this is Foxtrot Romeo …. doing a dive!

“Francisco” …. Andy, our Swiss pilot called with his usual smile.  “What about a flight to see the school and library from the air?”  He laughed as he is one of the few people to know about my fear of flight in very small aircraft.  Please understand that my last flight in a small aircraft […]

Leaving legacies!

Try to imagine to have never seen a library in your lifetime!  You have no re-collection whatsoever of a collection of books or to have never ever read a children’s story in your own language.  Oliver Twist?  Never had the privilege to read it.  Ernest Hemingway?  Who?  The story of Romeo and Juliet has never […]

Women and their children!

I remember going to church with my mom and the glare of all the ladies with their huge and beautiful hats.  I remember making comments all the time as the hats always amused me.  I only really started speaking at the age of 2 my mom says.  Since then my jawbone worked overtime.  I also […]
