Chantal went home this week after being here in Cape Town for a month. It was real fun having her stay here and I trust that the deposit we made in her life, will bear fruit in time to come. Chantal is Ryan's girlfriend and as she lives in Johannesburg, the two commute every so often, long distant relationships, not always easy. Nevertheless, we like having her come and stay. We traveled around a lot this time, showing her some of the places of interest. The cape has so much to offer and even though we see it over and over again, I just cannot see myself living any where else. This is home for us and both Andi and I are grateful we have the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place.
We have also had many good reports for friends of ours about how their businesses are being blessed and the rain the Lord has sent has provided much relieve for many farmers and we can only thank the Lord for his kindness in this regard.
So, this has not been a very eventful week for us, but we nevertheless remain in a state of worship as we constantly remind ourselves of the goodness of the Lord. Ministry is a little quiet as there have not been too many invitations, but we know that the Lord will open the right doors at the right time and so we rest in the fact that it was never about us.
Our prayer is that the Lord whom we serve will manifest in power in the lives of those who seek Him and we want to encourage you reading this today, to make Jesus the very reason you live.
