I hold a teacher training class on Saturday mornings.

Visitation and meetings such as these are done on Saturday afternoons. Here Tumeca, one of the young ladies from the teacher training class taught a lesson on Nebuchadnezzar on a hot and sunny day.

On Saturday evenings I love to play soccer with the boys. They're really good! I'd definitely think twice before playing against anyone my own size!

I've also been working in with the Sunday bus ministry here though most of the children walk to church, some walk 30 minutes.

One evening I was talking across the fence to some visitors of the missionary family next door. Next thing I knew they said, you should meet the 3rd guy in our group. It turns out it was Jonathan DeSeno. We'd met earlier this summer at Brian Drinkall's wedding in Chicago! He's traveling around doing evangelism.

Jonathan and I spent some time together out in Katlehong township handing out tracts, and talking to children and adults.

Jonathan has these 1,000,000 rand tracts that we've been handing out. It's easy to make friends. You just walk up and say, 'this is yours.'

This boy just wouldn't let up and ended up with about 5 1,000,000 rand tracts. Eventually the children were so insistent that I started throwing them (the tracts) up into the wind so that they would run away and give me some space!

When we showed up at the Youth Camp in Whitbank these were standing in the field.

When I took this photo I thought monkeys were cute. They are fun to watch, but they take most anything you leave around, and they're really fast.

We went on a game drive not far from the camp.
