We have returned to South Africa after a three month visit to the USA where we had a wonderful time with all parts of our family. December was spent with our immediate relatives in Alaska and Fort Worth, Texas. It was the first time in a number of years that we have been able so spend the entire holiday season with them. Our travel among the churches and Ministries we work with was equally fantastic.

Philippians 4:1 (NASB)
1. Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.



Some of our friends in Fort Worth, Texas: Chris & Angela Hough, Cathy Spitale and James Jeter who is the founder of Bridges of Hope International.

James Jeter gave me my first job in the ministry many years ago. He taught me that ministries should exist for the purpose of exalting Christ and benefiting His people. Trina and I will always be committed to these values in our work.

These photos are some of the individuals we work with in the USA that make up our “joy and crown.”
