During the past two weeks that we've been home in South Africa, we've had a wonderfully blessed time with our family. Last week we made a missions trip to Johannesburg which I'm sure Debbie will blog about. Normally when we undertake a road trip anywhere which is longer than an hour, I made food for the road (known as padkos) I've blogged about this before which you can read about here.

I've realised once more that the most important thing in the world is relationships. Making them, building them, nurturing them and prtecting them.
