When we struggle – Jesus Rescues! – Day 7

The theme for day 4 of holiday camp was “When we struggle – Jesus rescues”.  It is important for our crews to know that even Jesus had struggles.  Our story for the day was about Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Peter played the apostle Peter and our local South African leaders played the part...

Finally on the ground in South Africa! – Day 1

We were met at the airport by Francois who was our driver for the remaining journey.  He was no less than phenomenal.  A born again soul who had lived a life full of adventures such as a professional rugby player, and a short stint as Goofy at California’s Disney Land.  Francois is now a professional...
