In Franschhoek today, we began a retreat with fourteen Mums from Home From Home. Focusing on Mark 12:30, our time was spent focusing on loving God with all your heart and loving God with all your soul. In between our devotional and teaching time, we shared meals together and were able to pamper the ladies just a bit.
Their laughter and joy is contagious and they seem to love being together on this brief holiday. Will you pray for this time again tomorrow? The gospel has been shared in both word and action, and will be again tomorrow. Will you pray with us that God will multiply our efforts as only He can?
In Stellenbosch at our construction site, Keith had the opportunity to share his testimony of faith and his story of being a foster child with Rosie, ( A Home from Home Mum.) Rosie was so moved she asked Keith to share it with all six of her foster children as well. The oldest two children are sisters who have just recently lost their biological mother and have been dealing with some difficulties with anger and behavior. We are praising God for this open door and ask that you joins us in prayer for these children, especially the oldest two girls, who are grieving and struggling.
Thank you for the prayers you are sending our way. We’re off to sleep now before another day here in Cape Town!
