Who are the people that makes it possible for us to keep on ‘keeping-on’? I met a whole bunch of them throughout our time here in Cape Town, South Africa. Their stories in their ‘faith communities’ were amazing and made me realize that the same light and fire in their ‘communities’ is the same light that shines throughout Africa. It was great sharing our stories of hope, faith and perseverance and realized that it doesn’t matter where in the world you are …. the same stories of a transformational Jesus is the same everywhere.
