Departures/Arrivals

Hello from sunny Cape Town. We have arrived… at last. After all the time sharing, praying, packing, unpacking and talking incessantly about South Africa, we are finally here. A big thank you to all our family and friends for being so patient with us during the last 2 years of preparation. We knew it was going to be hard leaving our loved ones but we were completely overwhelmed by the sense of loss and sadness. Tears, tears and more tears. Despite…

Into 2017 We Go

Into 2017 We Go

A very Happy New Year to everyone! As the calendar turns over to another year (2017). Most people start thinking about what they did or didn’t do in the past year and what they would like the New Year to bring. What a difference a year makes! At the beginning of 2016 we were both holding down full-time jobs, living in our self-built home and enjoying our comfortable lifestyle. By the end of 2016 we no longer have jobs, are…

Advent of Visas

Advent of Visas

So here we are! It seems like the culmination of a lot of ‘stepping out’, passionate waiting, and anticipation…..and now, at last, they’ve arrived….the Visas! The one thing left which felt like it had serious potential to hold us back, but another light on the path has come on!  At each step forward over the last months, a new obstacle to be negotiated has confronted us. There has always been a need for us to be single-minded and determined in…

Where are you, Don & Lorna?

Where are you, Don & Lorna?

Where are you, Don & Lorna? Check out the video our friends in South Africa sent us! It seems like they are a little impatient for us to get there! It’s a good way to launch our blog-site, though, and we hope you enjoy checking out previous blogs and following our journey!  

Stepping into Outrageous Faith

Stepping into Outrageous Faith

On the morning of 1st November Lorna gave 2 months’ notice to her employer but prior to leaving for work that day read these words from the Glasgow Prophetic Centre. (GPC) ‘Son, daughter, would you rise up and out of your lack of faith and into outrageous faith? Would you move out of your comfort zone and advance into the darkness?’ We are certainly moving out of our comfort zone as the time of a monthly salary being paid into…

Full Circle

Full Circle

Recently things have been moving on.  We spent the summer months waiting (impatiently at times) for the house to rent and the visa process to be clear. This enabled us to spend a lot of time with our family, making use of the extra time and space God allowed us in our own house, Beacon, before renting it and moving to temporary accommodation. This turned out to be a generous friend’s garden studio (known increasingly as Hobbit House, pictured above) which…

…But, Would You Go?

…But, Would You Go?

  Following an initial prophetic word from God in September 2014 which clearly pointed toward a significant change in our lives, we have been on a journey of many promptings, encouragements, & confirmations. Early in 2015 we were directed by God specifically to South Africa and new contacts there which we knew would be significant. By June 2015 we were being encouraged to make contact with Barry & Kate Lewis, a couple whose ministry to Sweet Home Farm, a shack…
