“I’m an early morning traveling man”, I say to the frowning look of a Zimbabwean police official after – I stopped counting – police blockade. We are usually on the road by 04:00 AM – fresh air, rising sun ….. feeling good until an early roadblock and flashing lights brings the early day to a standstill. I had a moment of hesitation as I wondered how I would answer the non-smiling officer. I could pick any of the following –
- I am on my way to Mozambique to train pastors on how to plant a church in 3 days – no blocks or bricks or expensive roofing;
- I am training pastors who knows nothing about ‘church’;
- We are transforming mosque’s;
- We are building a firewall ….. in difficult areas;
- We are on a MISSION.
Our first stop is at a local village where some church planters are waiting anxiously for an early Christmas gift. After visiting Cape Town and raising funds for various groups where very little or no Bibles are available.
