On Sunday we met up with Dave & Nikki Bremner who stay in Fort Baxter (about 30 miles from where we were). We joined them at the local YMCA for the Eternity Church service. The church is 5 years old and meets in the Y each week. Dave, summed up the worship quite succinctly when said the band/worship team sings well and loudly, and everyone else mimes along...
Lunch with Dave, Nikki, Natalia (their eldest daughter) and Alan her new husband, was great - people who spoke our language. They explained some of the nuances of football, politics and American language to us...They also fed us great braai'd chicken flatties...
We returned to our apartment quite buoyed and ready to face more travel in the morning. As we left Jaars, Wayne went to settle our account and bumped into a lady who promptly listened to his accent and said "You are from South Africa aren't you - I grew up there."
Wayne : "Really, where?"
Jaars lady: "oh Kwa Zulu Natal"
Wayne: "wow where in Kwa Zulu Natal?"
Jaars lady: "a small town in the midlands - Howick"
Wayne: (stunned) "We come from Howick, where did you worship?"
Jaars lady: "Howick Community Church".....
It turns out it was Cheri - Wilfred Hart's daughter.
