NOVEMBER - 2011 FEBUARY 2012
I pray you have all settled into a wonderful 2012.
We have had a very hot summer, with 3 heat waves, lasting weeks at a time – up into the 40 degrees in places and beautiful warm balmy days in between. It is now beginning to close in for autumn [fall] with the days getting shorter, but lovely weather, blue skies and breezes. I love summer!
May to July 2010
Greetings beloved partners in Ministry,
I pray you are having a blessed year, and keeping well.
We certainly have had VERY challenging months, since my last news to you.
Firsty - the computer. It simply gave up from old age, after a few weeks of trying to fix it with no success - I had to get a replacement. This has taken some getting used to. However the upside to this, I have a system that is not 20 years old. I am slowly getting used to the new systems, from Mark, who has given me a couple of lessons.
February - April 2010
Hi there my beloved partners in Ministry,
As I write this in May – Winter has well and truly arrived! Gale force winds, accompanied by heavy rains have flattened my beautiful flowers. It is also exactly one month till the world cup starts here in South Africa – This has put a lot of our plans on hold! We can only start the building plans in July now.
August – October 2009
I greet you in the precious name of Jesus, and pray you are all well as this year rapidly draws to a close.
It seems that time is spinning by faster every month, and it is difficult to believe this will be our last correspondence till 2010. It will be a big year for South Africa when the world descends on us for the world Soccer Cup. Frantic activity is everywhere preparing for this momentous event. It all seems pretty surreal – and scary to say the least. I really cannot imagine everything being ready on time.
I am very happy summer is here, the garden is blooming with flowers, and lovely hot weather is here at last!
