Wait and see

Sunday night at bedtime my sun of almost 8 wanted to know what our bodies will look like in heaven. I told him that we aren’t sure, maybe like angels, but Jesus said that it will be beautiful new bodies. A few seconds later he said: “I just asked Jesus and He says: Wait and […]

Rich in every way

When I was a matric girl during 1969, Uncle Attie’s bedtime stories made a huge impact on my life. We lived in Windhoek. I collected tins of food and clothes and left it at poor people’s doors with the message: “With love, from Jesus”. I then knocked and ran away. Uncle Attie taught me to […]

A living God at work

Just want to say that the Lord’s mercy is unfathomable and it is awesome to serve a living God. I think that we often don’t realise that when we have surrendered something to the Lord we have to leave it to Him and trust Him with our lives. I think my son, Henry’s struggle with […]

Faithful indeed

During 1996 I lost my job and decided, after attending several interviews and being unsuccessful, that I will start my own venture. I prayed to the Lord and undertook that, if He would help me to be successful, I and the people we work for will start each day reading a chapter from a Christian […]

The Lord will sustain you.

I have a testimony of what happened to me and my deceased wife. My deceased wife’s (Karin) father was laying on his deathbed. Now Karin was very close to her father and that night her father past away. Karin was very upset and said there is no God, which shocked me. All kinds of things […]

God is good, God is everything.

When I was young I did many things that I’m definitely not proud of. I grew up in a Christian home but I moved away from my Christian upbringing after I got married. I am divorced – it was not due to my ex-husband but I brought it about (one boy born from the marriage). […]
