I'm not a professional photographer but I do like to try to take nice shots.  The sunset was really neat the evening I took this picture.

More Fire

Unfortunately this is very normal for this part of South Africa!

Wild Fire

Every year during the dry season here there are many wild fires.  Yesterday one started up on the mountain behind our house and eventually worked it's way down the mountain and into the fields around the house.  We didn't have to worry as there was no tall grass or trees near our house, but a lot of the pasture was burned.  A week or two ago another fire burnt through a farm a couple of miles from our place and that farmer lost most of his peach orchard, several cows and  a lot of fences.  Needless to say there a lot of smoke in the air this time of year.

Count down....

Seven weeks from yesterday, 10/5/10, we fly out of Johannesburg, SA in route for the US.  The weeks are flying by and there is much to do.  Some of my responsibilities have already been transferred to others who will be taking over permanently.  Sometimes, lately, I have felt a bit in limbo as I'm stepping out of past obligation and now preparing to return to the US for six months.  Recently I've had a burden to get good messages into the hands of our people here.  I've been taking old audio cassettes, playing them into my computer and then burning them onto CDs.  I would like to do this on a bit more of a larger scale so we can give good sermons out here in the community.  Help us pray about this new venture.
