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 […]

Joining a FLASH MOB! Part 4

Our Co-workers not only do amazing things with us through their support, care and prayers, but they INSPIRE those around them to act as well.  I was amazed during my last trip to attend some mission conferences in Cape Town to see this in action.
I was enjoying a very hospitable evening with friends when I […]

As is the tradition for the last 10 years or more our students take responsibility to provide an athletics meeting (the full show) with the nearly 280 school children in our bush school.  It is a huge event which includes […]

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 […]

The joy of music

What does Alex, a South African and Paulo Escova – a Mozambican have in common?  An absolute love for music and guitars.  To tell you the truth – Paulo is fanatic when it comes to guitars.  He has a big church in Honde (Central Mozambique) and he has set up a very lively church band […]
