Mokopane-July 2009

I've been an evangelist's wife for nearly 17 years, yet I still have some pretty carnal temptations. When I see signs like the ones below, I want to insert an "i" or add an "s" on the end. I won't, but it gives me a bit of sympathy for grafitti "artists".

By the way, "Oop", means "open" in Afrikaans.

This beastie would have looked more impressive if we'd have put a foot in there to show how big he is. Then again, Young feet are pretty big, so may not have shown his impressiveness. We found him on the sidewalk, and put him in a bran flake box, much to the amusement of a lady passing by. The bran flakes just had to stay in the bag. He probably got too cold and fell out of the tree. It is COLD here, like 0 degrees C each night, or even colder. I'm thinking about praying for a heatwave.

We stopped in Johannesburg for Sunday where Paul preached & Josh got to play pool. I did take a picture of Paul preaching, but it came out blurry, so we'll go with the pool picture.

Evangel took this picture of snow on the mountains above the Hex River Valley as we left Cape Town.

Here are 2 pictures, one drawn by Paul, one drawn by Evangel. Can you tell the difference?


  1. If you do pray for a heat wave, could you send the cold weather up here, please? We're adjusting, but slowly...

    I love your posts! :-)

  2. Ooh, that girl is good - no idea which is which!

    Sadly, it took me a good minute or two to figure out what you meant with the first picture!!

  3. Am impressed by E's picture. And continue to be impressed by P's.
    Love y'all.

  4. Hi, Vicki,
    I SOOOO enjoyed your blogposts today.
    Your kiddos are growing up! We just buried Michael's grandma (mom, really) this week after a prolonged 6 month illness. Lilli has been learning about death, man's fall, and God's plan of salvation. She asked "Why did Adam and Eve have to sin?" There are so many questions at this age.

    Your humor was great medicine. I , too, would have been tempted to add "s's" or "i's"
