God is behind the curtains

I’ve told the story before of how four of us went to visit another friend in Australia. We had a great time together with lots of sports. Amongst others, we spent a week on a yacht near the Great Barrier Reef. We all had specific duties on the yacht and mine was to man the […]

Unbreakable promises

God cannot lie. It’s not His style, not part of His story. If God lied, He would no longer be God. We’ll never be able to be God, because we’re saddled with a few faults – one of which is that sometimes we can’t live and speak the whole truth. It’s impossible for God, however, […]

Take a stand for what you believe in

I don’t like reading much, but for some reason I found Foeta Krige’s book quite interesting. So much so, that waiting at the airport for the flight for our week-long tour to Namibia, I decided to buy myself a copy of SABC 8. Wow, I was left gasping by the stories he tells. And yes, […]
