Wow, what a beautiful country South Africa is! I feel so blessed to be here and I am continually grateful for all your support and prayers. I can't believe that me and Alice have only been here two weeks as we've so quickly adapted to life here and especially the heat, with only a few nights of heavy rain so far. It's already feeling like home!
We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the women from Hope Church who we are staying with, there are nine of us at the moment in the house sharing a kitchen and a living room. We are also guarded by Hiccup the dog, who always wants to play...! Me and Alice share a room and then there's Lindo (who looks after Hiccup), Sonke, Lebo, Beth (who's also with Crosslinks), Jess, Esteè and finally Relo (who's moving out soon...;( They work in a range of things from kids work to youth work to student ministry. They are honestly some of the funniest, kindest and most Christ centred women I have met and I hope to continue to learn from them! Please pray for dynamics in the house, that we would continue to spur each other on in all circumstances throughout the week. Please pray for patience with each other as we share some responsibilities around the house.
