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 another WOW – but let me share all the stories little by little as there is a lot to tell! I have mostly been on the road via Mozambique, South Africa (various provinces), Angola and back again. Mission conferences, meetings … more meetings and a lot of sharing. And no … I am not complaining it has been the greatest joy ever to share what God is constantly doing.
But before I share all those stories …. back to Mozambique … as we took a few days with friends to just rest before transformation took hold of us all. Here are a few lighter moments from the Mozambican coast. Enjoy!
|Going to the coast in Mozambique means …. eating a healthy and BIG breakfast. And that is exactly what we did as Andy Kuret shows off his chef skills.|
|Catching a boat to the deep sea …. and a few islands on the way. Visiting Pansy Island was a highlight.|
|We found pansy shells by the millions … literally!|
|Deep sea fisherman fishing in the warm Mozambican current.|
|And of course …. a lot of snorkeling was on the cards too!|
|Joao, our Mozambican partner, saw the ocean for the first time …..|
|Did I mention that we eat a lot when visiting the Mozambican coast?|
|Horse riding was also provided on the coast and we took full advantage of the beasts as we explored the ocean from a different view!|
|Had to wait a long time for this shot …. but patience is a virtue. Sunrise like no other place in the world. Mozambique ….. early early morning. The fishermen beat me though!|
|No pain no gain though. With Mozambique still being in turmoil … we had to be escorted for about 100 km’s through dangerous roads. As I post this a peace treaty has been signed before the general elections on 15 October 2014.|
