Home from South Africa

God brought us safely home from South Africa. We are brimming over with the experiences we had, the people we met, and the things we learned.

In the midst of unpacking, washing clothes, and recycling junk mail today, let me take advantage of a couple of posts at Pastor Sam Crabtree’s blog.

One is Talitha’s reflections after our visit to Mukhanyo Bible School, AIDS Clinic, and Day Care for orphans outside Johannesburg.

The other is what I wrote thinking about the impact of the first Lausanne Congress for World Evangelization. In particular, I’m remembering the effect of Lausanne 1974 on the ministry and life of Bill Piper, my father-in-law.

  1. Thank you for sharing Talitha’s thoughts. What a reminder how our teens’ (and our own) exposure to the poverty of other cultures helps shed truth on our own. Her words are sticking with me today, “We want more. More than Jesus?”

  2. Praise God! I’m glad for safe travel and His hedge of protection around you and your family. I look forward to reading your other post and Talitha’s reflections.

    Kindest regards,
    Brook
