Have Faith in God


I could not stop wondering whether the owner of this house put his trust for security first in God and then in the private security company – in that order – or if the second sign was marking his lost faith in God? At least the company sign was attached with so much dignity not to cover up the statement of faith. Private security companies are a good idea in South Africa where the police service is not always reliable. However, the ultimate protection service is the Almighty himself!!!

Never Once Did We Ever Walk Alone

This song is dedicated to you. If you are reading this blog, chances are you have been walking with us, caring and praying.

We sang this song at church this morning, you can listen to it here:

“Never Once” by Matt Redman

and my eyes were full of tears of gratitude.

God has been so faithful to never leave us alone.

When I look back on last year, 2011, and the ups and downs that came with the challenges of Ralph’s health and the huge steps of faith to make the move to South Africa, God did not leave us alone but brought people like you, just at the right moment to walk with us. Thank you for walking with us through prayers, through notes of encouragement, meals, money, hugs, babysitting, packages, bills paid, hospitality, treats for our kids and simply listening to our hearts and believing in us.

So thankful that God walks with us. So thankful that He uses people like you.
