Sometimes people ask us, “Describe a normal day in your life.”
Follow us on our amazingrace, and you will see that there is nothing as normal as the unexpected. Directing a ministry needs strategizing and planning in advance, yet life happens upon us and here in Mozambique there is a lot of happening that needs rapid response.
We do not run alone. Everything we do is woven into the lives of Team members and field workers. What we throw out they catch and what we drop they pick up. Thank you Afrika wa Yesu Team….you are the BEST!
Packed and ready to continue on our amazingrace from Nacala back to Inhaminga.
Our amazing race is taking us on some different routes these days. The armed military escorts and big trucks travelling in the convoy are as much of a hazard as the ambushes. Filled with fear they race in and out of cars, dodging pot holes big enough to fit a wheel barrow in. Several accidents and injuries have been caused without a shot being fired. This, coupled with long delays and sometimes having to sleep on the side of the road while waiting for military escort, has caused us to search out the old roads abandoned years ago.
No time to tell the stories, so we are depending on each picture to speak the proverbial ‘more than a thousand words’.
The Unspeakable Inhaminga Road
Finally, the final part of our AmazinGrace Egypt blog. It comes at a very apt time, after the birth of Christ, when it is time for Him to journey to Egypt.
I called My Son out of Egypt
The desire to visit Egypt stirred in our hearts three years ago when the nation was thrown into turmoil during the ousting of President Mubarak and the take-over of the Muslim Brotherhood. Continue reading
Amazing Race, Amazing Sunrise. Filling up at Caia, Zambezi River.
The long African road requires an early start, long before dawn. Fortunately for me, I am accustomed to awakening the dawn. When I was a child, my father always rose very early, as he had to be at work at first light. Often he would find me at the window, looking out into the dark. “What are you doing? It’s still dark!” I would respond, “I’m waiting for the morning.” Continue reading
From a Rocky Mountain High… to Mozambique via Cape Town and Zimbabwe!
Colder than cold!
To Cape Town… love the sea, but this is not the warm Indian Ocean! Continue reading
When I was at school, many years ago, I found the subject of history totally boring. That all changed once I had left school and discovered I was living within the moment that history was being made. Suddenly past events became fascinating as I lined them with where we are now and how the now affects not only the immediate moment, but also affects the future… forever! Every day is a gift. Not only a gift to us, but a gift to others. What we give today can change a tomorrow. Continue reading
Keeping pace demands an increase in speed and the ability to capture the imperative, letting go the unnecessary. We loved a ride in the R 66 Turbine belonging to our friends, the White and Eaton families of Jackson, MI.
Live the journey, enjoy the ride……….. and capture it so you never lose it. Secure it so it lives and produces in you forever.
The secret of a journey is in immersing oneself into the culture of living souls. People, is what it is all about. Continue reading
