Rusoord Plumstead 19 September 2018

Rusoord, 'n NG Kerk aftreeoord in Plumstead was ons volgende stop.  Sulke dierbare mense met 'n hart vir sending en die verlorenes was so oorweldigend vir ons.  Hul deelname en belangstelling in wat ons doen in Thailand is 'n seen vir ons.  Ons kon deel wat ons daar doen en hoe ons dit doen en soveel vrae was gevra soos hulle meer blootgesteld was van Thailand.

Ons moes vroeg oggend die pad gevat het na Plumstead want ons was nie seker wat die oggend verkeer sou maak nie.  Dus was ons twee ure voor die tyd alreeds daar in die omgewing maar het toe 'n koffie gaan geniet voor ons Rusoord toe gery het.

NG Plumstead - 16 September 2018

What a priviledge it has been to share the Word of God at the Dutch Reform Church, Plumstead Cape Town.  A small church with a big heart for missions; local and abroad.  We received and experienced so much love and joy from the minister and church members.  We felt so much at home with everyone - and why not, afterall we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.  One big family.  Scripture was from Matthew 21:1-11

Reverent Hannes Koegelenberg welcomed us to the congregation and we know this was a meeting and start of relationship building between ourselves and the church itself.

Sonja and her daughter are missionaries from Madagascer who were working there for more than 12 years already.  They recentley returned from Madagascer and it was such a honor to have met them.  Sonja's husband is still in Madagascer.  
And then we enjoyed a wonderful barbeque lunch wit some of the church members who invited us.  Their love and care for us was warmly felt and appreciated.  We had fun, tears and joy as we shared stories from all over.

A typical South African barbeque was amazing.  We ate and ate and ate and ate and ate . . . and ate more.

It was so wonderful and warm to hear all sorts of stories from the elders remebering their yout years and also from all the funny stuff they did and experienced.



DF Malan High School 12 September 2018

We were invited to share some word and encouragement regarding working as a Christian Missionary in Thailand at DF Malan High School, Bellville Cape Town.  What a blessed afternoon we had with teenagers who came to listen.  One could really feel and experience the hunger these children have for having a intimitate relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  It was overwhelming to experience the hunger for Jesus that these teenagers have and we also know now what influence their strong faith in God has towards the other kids from school.  We are looking forward to visit them again soon.

Spes Bona - 9 Sepember 2018

Warm and kind hearted people always stay forever in your thoughts.  It was so special to visit Spes Bona Church and to share Word and our hearts for Thailand with the church.  In spite of the cold weather, warm hearts just blossomed the place up.  We are so grateful and blessed to have an opportunity to fellowship with Spes Bona Church.

Only God can bring peace, warmth and comfort to all of us.


It warms our hearts to see so many youth attending church - especially at the farm churches.

Attie van Wyk Laerskool 5 September 2018

Local is lekker . . . was baie lekker gewees om by Attie van Wyk Laerskool te kuier.  Was 'n voorreg om bietjie met van die kinders te kon deel dat dit die moeite werd is om op God te vertrou en jou lewe aan Hom toe te wy al voel dit soms of God van jou vergeet het of nie jou gebede aanhoor nie7.  Ons sien uit daarna om weer te kom kuier en meer saad te plant.

Die kinders is so gretig om te leer en te luister.
