    ... straight away. I had two speaking appointments on Sunday at different meetings and there were still a few finishing touches to be made to each. The first week back was going to be a baptism of fire with lots of catching up to do on various projects (including sleep), and then a Bible Education Centre Graduation Day the following Saturday, three more speaking appointments on the Sunday and then a road trip down to Port Elizabeth via, Candu ...

    ... Moses won't remember this love. He won't remember that every time if go through a check out, the Gogo packing my bags will pull the pram towards her and happily chat and sing to him while she packs. He won't remember the shop assistants that insist on giving him a cuddle before I leave the store. He won't remember the township kids who gasp and melt when he smiles at them.

    ... the sweat and complaints worth! Breath taking views up there!

    One day visit in Lesotho, an independent county in the middle of South Africa. Great to meet the local and learn about their life just like it is 100 years back in time. And great to taste their selfmade discusting beer! Luckely they also had a nice real beer in bottle later on.
    Again we met a very nice Dutch couple, great to speak a little Dutch again! Thanks Mus and Lenneke! also for taking the usb stick and cd ...

    ... we have God in our hearts then we are truly beautiful. The children then made egg carton spiders with pip cleaner legs and placed them onto a paper plate that had wool threaded across it like a web. Again, a proud mummy moment - this same school we had visited in our first week here in Africa, I remember Ollie was so nervous and didn't really want to join in, and even though he had allowed to get his face painted back then I knew how brave he ...
