My fourth visit to Buffalo City, as it’s known, in the black dominated South East of South Africa … An old fashioned golf course that doesn’t depend on distance but accuracy and being on a Links this is a much enjoyed event by the players, but not the caddies as it is a touch up and down and around hill & dale …
Speaking of caddies; I had a great 1 to 1 with a caddie I’ve mentioned before and through our chat I find he is a believer (Sth African needless to say) and that was good to find out as he is someone who sees the need to have your actions speak as loud as your words … He and his wife will be basing themselves in England over the summer for the European part of the Tour so we may get him involved in some studies and “Roadshows” ….
I also discovered that one of the SA based black caddies, Alex, got saved a year ago (man in his sixties) and he told me how it all came about and that he felt a call of God very quickly to caddie for a particular player and that subsequently happened, do remember Alex and his player …
There was a terrific little 10 minute walk along the seafront from my hotel, where many on the tour were staying, to the official hotel for the courtesy bus and that proved a precious time on a few occasions during the week to have a chat along the way, every little helps build up a relationship …
We had another turnout of a dozen for Wednesday’s study, they put it back to an 8am start, in sympathy for me I think , we dwelt on Genesis 15 and used the application of humility and there was much sincere sharing …
Our old caddie friend you may remember from my previous reports, was up to his tricks again, in with a question and out before the answer … You’ll see where he is at as the question was if as you say (speaking to me) there is only one way, why are there four different point of views from the four gospels, why don’t they say the same thing?  We’ll come across him again very soon, he’ll not duck & dive every time …
Next week is Madeira where the caddy “Mac” died on the course last year …, several caddies won’t be returning for that reason and the fact it is a torturous carry, it makes the East London course look like a stroll along the front ….

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
