Caring on the Way Praise and Worship evening

"Caring on the Way", an initiative by Sandra Joubert and Melinda Du Plessis (check out their Facebook page - Caring on the Way) held a Praise and Worship evening at New Life Family Church in Cape Town for Frontida Outreach.  We were blessed by the people who God chose to attend worshiping and praying for Frontida Outreach.  It was a blessed evening and we thank everyone who attended and shared this night with us.  Much appreciated.  Special thanks to Jaco and Lilian who led the Worship evening in full swing.

Football and Steak

The Frontida Football team (junior) is coming on fine.  Saturday we had a good "exercise" again.  the boys come together from different villages.  Although they are all still strangers to each other (they are attending different schools), they are starting to get to know each other.  Soon we will start playing in Sisaket and Ubon Ratchathani as the team develops.  We have some pretty good ball players here.  I am very proud of them.


After practice, some of the boys enjoyed a well deserved lunch treat.  The other boys had other activities they needed to attend.

Building a Library

So the FUN has begun.  We are helping Makrud School building a small Library for them.  Not fun digging and sweating in this heat but we praise God for this wonderful opportunity to be involved with the community of Makrud Village.  I am also getting some free building "Thai style" lessons :)

Amasing Questions

Today the students at the university wrote a mid term exam.  Some were very nervous and some cruse through the test.  Now I have to start marking the 102 test papers . . . not a cool job.

After class (every Wednesday) I always invite 4/5 students for coffee to build relationships with them  In the beginning they were very shy to come forward for the open invitation.  During time they eased up a bit.  Today was very special as 4 students went with me for some coffee and a light lunch.  We chatted about this and that and then when I had the opportunity to ask them how they think "life" began or where does it come from.  Obviously there were different opinions and questions.  One guy said he often thinks about this question I asked.  He thinks about where life begun and where does it ends.  One girl said God gave life and she believes He is the creator of the earth and the heavens.  I was amassed by her answer . . . but she never believed and worshiped God.  

Then they asked me what happened in the garden of Eden?  Does the apple simbolises something?  Why is there no garden of Even anymore?  Logical and simple questions by the lost . . . who are seeking.  I answered their questions and shared some more with them.  And if I might thought or doubted that next week "new students" would like to go for coffee, they asked if we could have lunch again next week.  God is amassing and wonderful.  All glory and honor to Him.
