After the end of season European leg of the tour sabbatical it was back to SA and the two week December trip, this was reduced t one due to the lack of a sponsor for the Nelson Mandela event, so it was off to Kruger National Park at Leopard Creek, a “park” the size of Wales!
We had the Bible Study on Wednesday at 7am, outdoors on the veranda in 23 degrees and with 18 in attendance …. Oh! For the day when we have 18 at the Study in Europe …. Andrew Georgiou who is the organising Pro was a little taken aback when he asked for the usual text to be sent out to all the players informing them of when the Study was taking place, the SA secretary was fine, but the European refused to entertain the notion of informing the European based players, you can see there is a way to go yet …. Study was excellent with many contributing and also a couple of non believers there …..
I had a couple of extended chats with an old caddie friend who was in his usual animated form …. The caddies always wear shorts on the tour and I advised him to wear long trousers as he tripped himself up so much that his knees were getting badly skinned, he enjoys the banter …. The last “discussion,” a very loose term with him giving off that God changed His mind, so I asked him, “Why would someone who knows everything have to change His mind?” Furrowed brow and silence was the answer from him ….
It’s always good to renew acquaintance after a little break from the tour [6 weeks] and everyone greets you as if they hadn’t seen you for years, rather endearing really .
Many thanks for your prayers, encouragement and support through 2104 and I wish you Gods presence over the Christmas and New Year holidays and into 2105 …
“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalm 16:11
