I so love travel. 😊 When we out of our comfort zones we once again become acutely aware of our surroundings… A single new bird call has everyone dashing out and peering into the trees. We discover so many new treasures that are another man’s everyday familiarity.
A new adventure is time for a new travel notebook. Everyone is so excited to knuckle down with creating new covers a nd their first entries of what they have discovered so far.
The reason we find ourselves on the road again this time is simply, the same as before…. God told us to go. So we are going. Once again nothing more than a simple step of obedience.
Positioning the Prophetic
What a privilege it was this weekend to join up with and be a part of a prophetic team. We (the team) spent the weekend encouraging the church on hearing the promises Jesus has for his people. Of course catching up with friends who travel the country too and mom turning a blind eye to the colouring my sister’s face all makes it such fun for our children.
But they are also very much a part of the team – dancing, praying and bringing words. This was a really awesome weekend of seeing people healed and God breaking into the darkest corners of people’s lives with the freedom of the truth.
Travel is in our blood – what can I say. We are heading out again. Making steps into eternity, intentional about extending His Kingdom in the lives of people we meet.
AND – we finally we did it! An almost 3 week trip with just a boot full – no trailer – for 8 of us… including our food! So proud of these little peeps in learning to pack light. It makes all the difference when moving from place to place.
Today’s destination is Nelspruit some 600 km away .
By 8 am we had the house cleaned and ready for our house sitter. By 8:15 am once again we felt the thrill of the road beneath our wings.
As we headed north east – dusty, dry, arid land surrounded us for the most of today. Rocky outcrops, thorn trees and dust….. so much dust…..
We are in the midst of reading Jenny Seed’s book Prince of the Bay so we couldn’t afford driving past Escort where there is Fort Durnford that was used to protect farmers from Shaka’s warriors – seen in the valley below the cannons. What a find! From historic documents, to swords and Zulu shield to a full egg collection from birds throughout Africa to dinosaur bones and a mini town scene. Soon our 20 min stop was extended into well over an hour.
Sobering scenery, road work blocks, very few places for loo breaks made for a very long, charcter building day on the road and our host house in Nelspruit such a welcoming oasis.
