Border Mechanics

3 000 kilometres and more than 55 hours on a small slow moving bus!  I followed my friends via facebook as they post quicker than CNN can get a report out to me (guess sign of the times).  The photos they sent via technology was staggering. I looked at a photo that arrived early morning […]

A LOVE Revolution and a hand grenade!

A busload full of LOVE started a long journey to our remote base in the bush without really knowing what to expect on the way.  But that’s what LOVE does, I guess …. it leads you into:unexpected places and facesdangerous situationsthinking out of the box situationsblessing others without thinking breathless situations never to be repeated acts of […]

Moments of Hope – Part 1

I love traveling and I love the phenomenal variations of cultures I am introduced to quite regularly.  Lao Tzu writes:  ” A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”  So I reckon the journey of a 1000 miles must start with a small step.I love traveling early in the morning […]

‘U2’ in the bush!

I love U2 for several reasons.  Life changers – reconciliation movers – justice believers – Kingdom shakers – God lovers – literacy liberators – world conquerers – ….. ok you get my heart.  By now you would know that I’m speaking of the many pastors in Mozambique (and Africa) who loves the BIBLE and wants to see […]

Water pumps ‘drops’ from the air!

The dust on the field and the huge failed crop stares Lucy from Sinjal in the face.  Small drops of sweat forms on her forehead as she tries to pick up a few maize cobs to feed her baby.  “Where will my help come from” and she turns on her Audio Bible and listens to […]

When love comes to town!

Must have been awesome waking up with the news that someone extraordinary is coming to town today.  You would probably put in the extra effort to clean up and and dress up.  We all like that special visit when someone comes to your door and your neighbor misses out because the visit is only for […]

A few thoughts on outreaches ….. and how to connect in the bush!

I’ve just said goodbye to a great group (Taberna Dei, Polokwane, RSA) of people visiting the mission base in central Mozambique.  As I am writing this they have already reached their destinations and have been re-united with their families and loved ones.  When I work with amazing teams like these, I always have to ask […]

Awesomeness!

Had a great group from Stellenbosch Congregation, Cape Town – South Africa who helped us with many projects around here.  I got their video presentation some time ago to summarize their time on the base.  I really enjoyed their point of view.  Here it is:

Caring put into action! Part 2

Church in Mozambique.  I have written much about it and the last chapter has still not been written.  (And will not be for a long time …. RED)  Reaching out to people in the bush has little to do with ‘evangelism’!  The term is understood different by many – depending where you come from.  In […]

When you dare to step out ….! Part 1

GETTING THEREGetting anywhere in Mozambique is a mission – literally.  When 15 very brave souls accompanied me to Gorongoza, I felt kinda like Moses.  I was excited but overwhelmed.  Without water, beds, food and peak malaria season, I wondered how God would make this outreach work.  And … Canaan …. was very far.  It started when […]
