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 […]

Happening right now!

Yet again I stand in awe watching the group in front of me.  Teachers, theologians, super accountants, mathematicians and believe it or not ….. even a para-Olympic athlete!  What do they have in common.  A deep love for the Lord and a deep love for humanity!  As so many times in the past we have […]

High Tea in the bush!

It’s August!  “So what”, you may ask.  Well I dared to question the purpose of the month August when my wife, Alta, gave me that glare that says:  “I think as part of the he-man specie ….. you should be very quiet now… and I mean NOW!”  It is times like these that you then […]

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 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 […]

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:

When the church leaves the builiding!

A missional friend of mine reminded me the other day of a T-shirt he saw someone wearing in a church which read:  “The church has left the building!”  I immediately loved it!  And if I am not mistaken a book with the same title was written by David Fredrickson.A group of very active students from […]
