As we start our new adventure I want to briefly recap last year. "Man makes plans and God laughs" or so it is said. We planned to be knee deep in many areas of agriculture in Genadendal by now! Much political and spiritual unrest waylaid us there. Just now, a year later our mentor Theuns has started a small garden in a neighbouring village. Over the past year God allowed me to work on six different building construction projects, mostly out of our own monthly support (money we have received from you the readers). Thank you! You also built homes for brothers and sisters which some day you'll meet! I was privileged to lead seven people to the Lord! Four of whom we also were able to disciple with Every Nations One to One program. I can now understand how Paul felt when he left his disciples to go to other places God called him! Will they continue in the faith? Who will love them as I have? The answer is Jesus! JESUS will love them even more than I! With around 50 people in attendance in our farewell braai, we felt real genuine love from the people! I shed not a tear until I knelt to say good bye to a small 9 year old girl, Ashlynn, then the flood of emotions hit me! At that moment we shared something wonderful! unspoken love, and something terrible, not knowing if we would ever see each other again! To my surprise she called 2 weeks after to inform me, her and two other children were planning on catching the bus to church! I am so glad to see God continue the work we began!
