Dec 30, 2020, is our 25th wedding anniversary. We love the song “Do You Love me?” from the Fiddler on the Roof so this year we can finally sing this song with “after 25 years…”. We decided to do a video with a little change of words. Hope you enjoy our first musical.Continue reading Do You Love me?
Originally, we were supposed to come to South Africa in June 2020. It took us 6 months to finally get here. During these 6 months of “wandering in the desert”, the Handley Family, who were our neighbor and home church friends, never gave up the hope of us visiting them. They kept encouraging us and we also felt a call from God to come as well. So it was with such excitement for us to finally visit them at Jeffrey’s Bay.Continue reading Guess Whom We Met along the Garden Route of South Africa?
“What time is it?” shouted the little girl, Imihle, who was standing right outside the yard barefooted where we were staying.
“It is 1 pm,” I replied, realizing that she has no watch to tell time.
“When is the Center open today?” Imihle asked again.
“3 pm!” I shouted back.

Stuck in the traffic jam caused by the lion sighting, the driver of the next car over helped us piece together the story play by play:
“Do you see the lion? He just crossed the road. Maybe we get to see some kill in action!”
“Wait, you hear the low wailing sound he is making? That’s a call for other lions. Perhaps he over slept and his pride left without him.”
Suddenly, out of no where another lion came running towards him.
“Look! His mate came back! Wait, that’s not a lioness, it’s another lion! Ohh…maybe that’s his brother. They must have left their pride to search for their own girls friends! Haha…”
Two brothers…bro-ing away to form their own pride… don’t know about you but I hear the theme song of Lion Kong coming on!
