Kisumu, Kenya:  I’m getting use to Kisumu and its weather.  Hot and humid as most of the places I go to these days.  I’ve heard that our 20 pastors in training will be waiting for us at 06:00 am!  I woke before any chicken could announce the new day.  After a quick breakfast Herbie and I […]

Into the heart of Africa ….. Hotel Rwanda

The movie HOTEL RWANDA was Hollywood’s version of what happened in Rwanda during the genocide.  Although they tried to tell a horrific story …. the real truth is far more shocking in cruel.  A book saw the light a year ago ……    Their story is a bit closer to the truth and look at […]

Follow the journey …

I seem to keep on saying it constantly ……. ‘time is flying’!   The last three months seemed to have disappeared somewhere.  I struggle to keep track through the distances travelled and even the wonderful people that crossed our paths the last few months.  After extensive training programs we received 50 amazing transformational agents from […]

A Gospel of Presence – in practice …

A Gospel of Presence – probably not a phrase you hear very often.  The entire WORD of God though speaks about a Gospel of Presence.  Our whole ministry is based on this phrase – to live a Gospel of Ministry.  Presence is a strong and powerful ministry in Africa.  From early mornings to late evenings […]

First bicycle race ever in Mozambique to emphasize Children’s Literacy

One of the most memorable facets of life, in my humble opinion, is creating lifelong memories. And where children are involved that becomes even more important.  With the huge amount of emphasis we put on literacy and especially literacy amongst women and children it was high time to do something special.  One of the most […]

Moments of Hope – Part 4

All in ONE day!If there is one thing that is very clear in Africa is that it is no place for lazy people.  Through ten days in northern Mozambique there was hardly time to catch your breath as we continually moved through the red dust of Mutarara. It was hot with early mornings and late […]
