Footprints

Many people say that I am “a dreamer” ……… on that I agree ….

into “All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.” - T. E. Lawrence I echo David Brainerd’s words "Oh, that I could spend every moment of my life to God's glory!"

REPORTING BACK on my “footprints” into Africa. As the 3rd term begins I wanted to bring you all up-to-date on my work and the wonderful way the Lord has undertaken for us in every way. KMBC My lecturing load is a heavy one with 30 lectures per week, 2 tutorials and an evening Bible Study, but the thrill for me is that each of these students is preparing for ministry into Africa. There is a lovely spirit among the students and having “the bishop” around all day has made a huge difference.

CONFERENCE After 1 year of planning the first Footprints into Africa Central Africa Pastor’s Conference it is now over and what a blessing it was! We had 175 delegates attending from 33 different Churches. In the most wonderful way, friends donated gifts so that all the financial aspects were fully met. I plan to hold a Conference each year, alternating between KMBC and Central Africa. We will host the 2013 Conference here at KMBC and then the following year, 2014 it will be held in Malawi. Thank you for your prayers … leadership training is absolutely critical, and the fellowship is so encouraging for those in the field … it is so very exciting

VISIT TO CHITAMBO’S VILLAGE After the Conference I was able to travel to the place where David Livingstone died while on his knees and then to visit the monument which has been built on the spot where his heart was buried by his loyal servants, Chuma and Susi … it was unbelievable ...

FUTURE TRIPS 1. MALAWI In September I will be driving up to Malawi with Dave De Winnaar and hopefully my son Jon. We will be taking boxes of clothing, books and items for the Nursery School to Lenard Gowa, and I want Jon to dedicate the borehole which he raised funds for.

2. RWANDA AND UGANDA Then in November, together with my son Gregg, we will travel to Rwanda where I will speak at a Pastor’s Conference there and then travel onto Uganda where new contacts have been established. There are incredible opportunities opening for me all the time, so do please pray.

3. INVITATIONS I have also been invited to go to Zimbabwe and the D.R.C. but maybe I could fit these in towards the end of the year. The need for teaching is huge, but it is thrilling to see all these invitations to teach in Africa coming my way. Newsletter / July 2012
