Yay! Our good friend James, aka the Sterinator, won the Steri-Stumpi ambassor of the month award. The Steri marching band sterinaded him at the UCT lab. Good times! We made a little video clip. So proud of you James!
Also check out the Steri Stumpi blog: here You can find the Steri advert that Jonny D, our cousin, made there as well.
We’re so proud of our Dad who came up with the DAD initiative. He was on USA national television recently. Check out:

It is well with my soul… Can you say that? In hard times, in happy times, when you are really tired, when you have lost everything, can you truly say “It is well with my soul”. When we know Jesus, he does something in our hearts and souls.
Job was a man who lost virtually everything in his life yet…,
20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, 21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. 22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.”
Man we are so quick to question God, and go into despair. Yes i think there is a time for mourning, but truly at all times we need to keep our eyes on Jesus… and worship like Job, and remember that God is still Holy!! Watch this story of a ‘modern day’ Job… this faith is huge.. God must have given him so much grace!
Wow so i have about 8 different topics I want to blog about, but I just have not have the time… I will blog about them one by one, starting with the Harvest!
For the last few weeks God has really being laying Matthew 9v36-38 on my heart:
36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
This had special reference to uTHando leNkosi and children’s homes and places of safety around the world and foster and safety parents and adoptive parents etc etc (ie dealing with children in need). There is such a huge need for the church of Christ to rise up and take care of children. There are thousands of kids, children just like any other child, who want to learn, who desire to have fun, who need love, and yet there are very few people taking care of them! I really felt that God was asking me to pray for more workers to be sent out to the harvest field of children. They are rip unto harvest, they are ready for the gospel… but who will go? who shall God send?
But since then this has expanded and I am really praying for more people to be going out into all harvest fields. This weekend I was at a training session and they said, (in my own paraphrased words), ” if people are looking at the health of Christianity in an area and they find that things are hard and people are ‘non-receptive’ to the gospel. They often say the problem lies with the hard hearted individuals.. yet really the problem is that there are not enough workers, we must therefore prayer that God would send out more workers.”
This verse just keeps coming up. So are you praying for the harvest fields? are you praying for more workers? Lets do what God commanded us to do! More workers, cover more ground…
That’s My King! A powerful clip that talks about Jesus!
If you have more time, here is the whole clip of what SM Lockridge said in his ‘My King’, part of the sermon. it really is pretty cool!
So Tim Hawkins can be incredibly funny! He has so much good material…
here is just one of his many clips that i love!
We often give up to easily! We are good starters… but then we fade… We need to learn to finish with Pride!
Let us not be like the ten virgins that are caught unprepared! Let finish the race with Christ
“My country did not send me 5000 miles to start the race, they sent me 5000 miles to finish the race.”
