Notices: News From The Simpsons

Date Added: 05/08/2019 @ 8:36am

Thank you for your prayers and best wishes over these last few weeks. We

have arrived safely in Heideveld and have been warmly welcomed by the

Church and by the Burt family. Tom is starting to get involved in some

of the groups with his opening event being the Seniors' Bible Study

group. They had some amazing stories and made him feel really welcome.

He was then part of the Kids Club and the Youth Group; sadly, he

struggled to keep up with the actions to the songs! Gemma has started to

find her way around the area with her highlights being swimming in the

indian Ocean for the first time and seeing some African Penguins. We're

all still getting used to the area and everyone's finding it quite

tiring (especially the boys). While there are differences to home (for

instance, we have to be a lot more security conscious and we're singing

a song in Afrikaans on Sunday), there are a lot of similarities too; we

still read the same Bible (they use the same translation as our pew

Bibles) and do a lot of the same things (homegroups, an equivalent of

Wednesday Fellowship, youth group) and eat the same food! God is the

same everywhere and works as powerfully here as He does at home. Please

pray that we would continue to find our way and that we'd be able to be

a blessing to the Burts and the people we meet. We continue to hold you

all in our prayers.
