The seaside village of Yzerfontein.
Friday began at the Cape Town YFC office and a staff meeting with all of the international volunteers and staff. Over thirty people in the room singing and sharing. I opened God’s word and challenged them to have the same attitude that Jesus Christ has mentioned in Philippians.
Another volunteer was attending her last meeting before returning to Germany next Monday. Thank you and encouragement came from all around the room. They are a very tight knit group.
Friday afternoon Rolf and the children drove to Yzerfontein on the Atlantic coast. This cottage belonged to Lizzie’s mother before she passed away a year ago. It is a very restful spot. Cathy and Lizzie have been here for two days. Their devotions were deep and rich.
Last night Kyle and I took time and went to a local sports pub to watch the Cape Town Stormers play a rugby match. I am enjoying learning this sport. It is beginning to make some sense. Rolf’s younger brother also attended.
Last night Cathy, Lizzie and I went outside after dark to see the stars. The dust of stars that make up an arm of the Milky Way was brilliant and clear. No moon was visible so the stars were gleaming bright. I pointed out the Southern Cross which is the opposite of the big and little dipper in the northern hemisphere. It was breathtaking.
God’s handiwork is so beautiful. Seldom do we get such a pristine view of the sky in Memphis. Too many lights pollute the sky. Remember, he calls each star by name. Amazing.
Today we are going to a bushman rehabilitation center. I will be fascinated to see what they do and how. Keep praying.
