Today was a travel and work day. Rolf and I flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg. I worked at the YFC office for several hours before we left for the YFC camp. It was nice to catch up on some things but I never got to some things I desired to do like this blog.
Rolf and I had a leisurely drive to the camp and actually stopped along the way to have dinner together. Our discussion went to family and the many issues that press in on missionaries. His travel is heavy currently and it is taking him away from Lizzie and the kids a lot. He can see the pressure it is creating for his teenage kids. My goodness have I been there before. We talked and prayed together. By the way, the pizza was outstanding. This was different than Pizza Hut for sure, but delicious.
Our arrival at camp was greeted with hugs, smiles and laughter. We sat and watched them exercise, dance and work very hard. I was impressed with their dedication. Sweat flowed on each forehead.
Thank you Lord. Thank you for allowing me to be back with these ministry teams again.
