On Saturday morning Grant and I travelled to Clocolan, 34 kms from our town to check out a new supermarket. Marquard doesn't have any large supermarkets and most people travel to the city to do their grocery shopping. We were thrilled with the prices and the good service we received at the new OK Foods.
Later on in the afternoon, Amanda and Angus arrived with our dear Marquard grandson who now explores everything in Gran's house. Shadow enjoys having a young playmate around.

On Saturday afternoon, Angus, Amanda and our Marquard grandson joined us for the Ubiquitous braai (BBQ) in the garden
After church on Sunday we were treated to the annual Christmas dinner held in the hall. Because South Africa had successfully hosted the 2010 World Cup Soccer this year, the menu for the dinner yesterday depicted many nations across the world. Our church mission statement includes the scripture, Matthew 28:19a where Jesus says: "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations..." As we enjoyed the dishes from various countries, we prayed for those who still need to hear the Good News and the people who are out there ministering to them.
Our ten-month-old Marquard grandson has found his voice and keeps us in stitches with his funny sounds
