Holiday is hard work. Sitting around, trying to keep the boys busy is indeed hard. Well we had a great fellowship with family this weekend. Went fishing , dune climbing and swimming in a freezing ocean were just some of the fun things we did this weekend. Faces and arms are burned a bit from the sun, here we have a good sun...... At the coast its nice and cool but inland its nice and hot.
Please pray for rain. The whole of Namibia and Southern Africa is in a drought. Rain is precious in these areas as the farmers need water for their live stock. Seems to me it affects the fishing as well...... Was just reading how people up North struggles with Lions. Because of the drought the lions come closer to people and killing some of their cattle. Off course the people are shooting the lions in order to protect their livestock.
Reading about all the bad things that happens in the world, makes me wonder where this all will end. I am getting a prayer letter from a friend to pray for Syria. I think it will be a good place to start and pray for the people right in the middle of all of this.
Here is a small piece of her mail:
When someone showed me a photo of their house collapsed on top of an IS fighter, he looked so ’normal'. He looked like any other man. He was born like any other man. He grew up like most men. Yet something took a hold of his heart and told him he needed to fight for what he saw as truth.
Jesus, please show your mercy to these men and women who are calling on one they call god but do not know him. May they know You, the God of Love, who has a plan and purpose for every one of us. Lord, no one is beyond saving. May these fighters, for whatever reason they have chosen (or are forced) to fight, find forgiveness in You. May they seek You and find You. May they find hope and salvation in the only One who can offer true hope and true salvation. Thank You Jesus!!
Ouma Matra het her 6 monthly, chemotherapy again today. Just talk to her and she is fine, just a bid tired. My sister in law got her toe-nail,being cut out, due to ingrown nail. Her little daughter got a tooth being pulled, under anesthesia. Pray for them to feel better tomorrow. We will travel again down to Usakos, tomorrow. Pray for safe travels.
We thank you all for praying for us, even when we are on holiday. Connecting to God, here, is so much easier than in Cambodia. That was our first impression, when we landed here. Pray that we will be refresh and recharge again.
Love to all
