Ben and Marietjie McIntyre with their grandson Jonathan at the game park Bufflesvlei.
I'm "cheating" and using a picture from a self drive, game drive, we went on last year in Mokopane.
We've all got Kudu breath this morning which is a novelty. Our hosts, Ben and Marietjie McIntyre have gone way beyond the call of duty in feeding us and doing special things with us. Last night was super special. They took us on a game drive where we saw tons of wild animals---eland, running ostrich, zebra, and my favorite, three giraffe. We even saw reindeer! The reindeer are imported, so that's the first time we've ever seen those in Africa.
However, I couldn't take any pictures as my batteries had gone suddenly and completely dead in the camera. I was frustrated, but later relieved because we all wanted to stand up for the game drive, and I needed both hands to hold on. Evangel had her little video camera, but I'm not sure about putting videos on here.
While we out at Bufflesvlei, that game park, Paul received a wonderful call. A man called to tell us the story of his wife. She was in the Sunday night service and was unsaved. Paul preached "Hands Up" about how Moses had to keep his hands up for the Israelites to win the battle. He taught how we have to keep praying for each other to have success in our Christian life.
Anyway, the Holy Spirit worked in this lady. She picked up one of Paul's DVD's after church from the book table and took it home to start watching. She watched one sermon after another until about midnight! There are 26 on there. Then she got a booklet, I think in Afrikaans, that a pastor had written. She read that and around 2 a.m. was ready to pray with her husband for Jesus to save her. That's wonderful news!
Paul preached in three schools yesterday too. I must say, I've been so worried he's going to get sick again as his schedule gets busier, that I was even afraid to go on the game drive last night. This weekend is very full, but then Monday is totally free for rest so we'll try to keep him healthy til then.
