Wednesday 3rd October

It is Wednesday morning, and it is raining yet again in Cape Town!
We have had so much rain - please Lord send the rain to more deserving parts of Africa!

I am struggling to write some reports for Sunrise about our company, which we will use to market our animation and film productions and to raise finance to make movies... I do so want the money to come in so that we can commence production on some of the exciting projects.

Michelle and I have been praying for the Lord to speak to us about our calling to Malawi and we so need to hear Him speak to us so that we can know His plans for us.

Currently, Michelle's parents are staying with us - they are looking for a house to buy, but are finding that prices in Cape Town are so high that they cannot replace the lovely home they left in Sedgefield with something equivalent in the deep South (Fish Hoek, Noordhoek, Kommetjie)
It is so hard to know what to do with one's parents - do we need to take them in and care for them? If we do - then we can never leave here again. They are not destitute, and are capable of looking after themselves - but they do want to be near their grand children.
It's a tough call - and one does not want to neglect your responsibility with those who devoted their lives to raising you. On the other hand we feel called to serve God in Africa - and that means leaving Cape Town.... Oh I do trust that God answers our prayers in this one!


  1. Hi Alex! If you are moving to Malawi I suggest you have a look at the Stories on Malawi blog especially on the sidebar where there is a link to Other blogs on Malawi. I am sure the stories of the other foreign bloggers will be helpful to you. Nice regards.

  2. Thanks Malawi
    This is a great help - and I will be spending some time on this site!
    Regards and God Bless
