How many people can you fit in a Bucki?

Last week was another amazing testament to God's providence in supporting all our 2010 endevours.

On Wednesday morning we sat down to hit the Yellow Pages to find somewhere that was willing to donate a few tyres. We are going to build a retaining wall at a creche in Mariannhill and create an obstacle course for the kids at the Good News Centre there!

The FIRST place we called gave us 400 tyres...AND THEY DELIVER!!
It was a result we were not expecting on our first attempt. So we kept going...
The next place we rang was a shoe shop. WEe needed shoe boxes to put Christmas presents in for the creche kids. They said they could give us 40-50 PER DAY!

Thanks be to God...And of course, Christy's 'seriously' good telephone skills!

The highlight of the week however, was our trip to Margate. We headed down there on Thursday morning to have Bible class with Nelson, Alistair and Eddie. Mat talked about Moses and did hand-outs complete with beautiful illustrations of the staff turning into a snake!

After dinner at the Waffle House we planned a Praise and Worship morning for Saturday. We went out into the nearby township and to the local mall to hand out leaflets and invite as many people as we could.

There was a brilliant response and on Saturday morning...after a few trips to pick people up from the township...there were 45 people ready to sing praise to God!
The following morning we wet again to pick people up and were so excited to see how many people wanted to come back. The hall was full with 60 people joining us for the Sunday service...There wasn't a spare seat in the house!

It was a fantastic feeling to see everyone there and to see Nelson grinning as he translated the parable that the guys acted out for the exhortation!

It was an uplifting and encouraging weekend for us all and we are determined to go back to Margate more often to sustain the interest there!

So watch this space...
