Darren Clarke the Ryder Cup Captain warming up

As always here in SA we had a super turnout of more than a dozen for the Wednesday morning bible study and interestingly they have decided to work their way through Genesis (the begats and all) with the player, Peter Karmis whom I mentioned previously, giving his insights through Greek and Hebrew whilst reading from the King James!!  Interesting times ….

The need to apply the interpretation is vital and that is the aim whilst seeking to generate people’s thirst to read the Word more thoroughly … So far so good …

Being here the whole week allows me the extra freedom to meet up with a few players, caddies and media believers for 1 to 1 times and it was really good to meet with Mike Vlismas who took part in our Dunhill Links panel last year at St Andrews … Also it means I can walk round with some of the players whilst they are competing, showing some interest and support which they appreciate  …

Highlight of the week was with a couple I have asked you to pray for them many times before and during a walk round nine holes of practice on the course I had the opportunity to tell them; my testimony, Hennie Otto’s, plus a full and open chat on the way of salvation, as well as the multitude of other questions they asked, and I was always looking to get back to the simple ABC of it all ….

John 12:32
Jesus said “But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”
Do keep praying for them ….

This week is the second leg of this SA trip in East London … You are told never to go out in less than 2/3s anytime in SA, especially after dark, in East London, you are warned not to go out after dark at all, in any numbers, the taxis are busy ….
Proverbs 18:10
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”
