Blown tyre!

On our way home from the Berg we had a close call! Tyre nearly blew
and we limped into a garage! Safe, but mechanics can't beleive it, if
it was on front of jeep we woul have rolled they said!

Kristy and I have been trying to figure out what to pack, what to leave, what to give away and what to sell.   It's crunch time, and Burundi is waiting.  But the crunch is more then just what to pack and what to give away or attempt to sell in South Africa.  The crunch comes in a whole list of prayer requests (look right).  How do i get that Work Visa?  So we need to raise how much money before we go?!!!!  Yellow fever injections can't be given to you if you have an egg allergy, well hope Myles grew out of that one.

So much on the plate.  Kristy said we just can't add rabbits to that plate.  Like the one pictured from my first Burundi trip.  Lets call him George.  George was supper the night after I took this photo.

Thanks for praying, reading, caring and giving.

The Navigators of Durban

Say hello to the ever so serious leadership team of the Durban
Navigators. What an amazing group that is launching 2011. Our
vision, every leader discipling a brand new believer by the end of the
year. How to get there?! Big plans. Great ownership. Lots of prayer!

3rd generation Phil

3rd generation wedding

One of the great rewards to what we do is to see 2nd and 3rd spiritual
generations get married.
Here we are Thursday night at Phil and Vumi's wedding. Phil was led
to Christ and decipled by Spho, who I decipled.

Best part of the wedding? The wedding party dancing their way into the

End of year braai

Casting vision for next year. Thobe leads the way by helping us see
our natural relationships where we can advance the Gospel.

There is no snow in Burundi


So we are planning and praying about a move to Burundi.  As I do so I can't help but help give you a bit of a contrast between where in the USA we are from vs. where we are going.

Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Dr. Seuss wrote a book that is a must read for just about everyone.  It's a bit of how we're feeling today.  read a bit and see our heart beat...

Oh, the Places You'll Go!
by Dr. Seuss


Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

See the sea jumpers jump

Wow am I ever happy to be home! I am grateful for running water, the ability to brush my teeth straight from the tap, the freedom to open my mouth in the shower, my non-bedbug-infested-bed, and ziplocks. Ziplocks really are so handy, and I vow here and now never to take them for granted again. I have been waiting to tell you all about our Kenya, Burundi, Tanzania adventures (oh boy, was it ever an adventure… and FULL of drama from head to toe) because I am moving to a new blog! It’s a really pretty blog too, with enough room to move around in and LOTS of wall space to put up photos. I have NO IDEA how long it is going to take me to put this new blog together though, being that I am totally not tech savvy. In the meantime, I will show you one of my favorite images from the trip.
Cliff jumping is all the rage for the kids in Zanzibar. These kids were having a big competition for the “best moves” while blaring house music from a portable player. It was so much fun to hang out with them… even though, to them, I was a crazy white lady with a sleeping baby strapped to my front and a bag of popcorn. Because they have to get a pretty big running start, and I wanted to be ready, Coffee Guy would stand by the que of jumpers and I would have the camera pointed at the sea with my back to the “runway.” When someone started running Coffee Guy would shout, “Heeeeee’s commmmmmiiiiiinnnnnggggg!” All in the name of unpaid photojournalism.
