1 April – Rian and Saretha visit us for a week.  Their goal is to help us with developing the new coffee plantation.

3 April – We start planting the coffee beans.  Saretha contracts malaria.

7 April – Rian and Saretha head back to Tete.  I continue working at the clinic.  Jannie heads to the local river to pack stones en route to the farm (Mwala Madzi).

8 April – Jannie tows a motor from the river.  A local’s mule and wagon is used to assist the tractor.  The job happened deep in the bush and takes about 5 hours.  After a lot of effort and work, the motor is leaded onto a truck.

9 April – We attend Chandame’s church service.  The scripture comes from Luke 17 verse 11 – 19 and we are thankful again for God’s grace in our lives.

10 April – Jannie contracts Malaria again.  Every time he pushes his body to far, the virus re-surfaces again.

12 April – The mobile clinic from Vila Ulongue visits us and 400 women with babies are present.  Babies are weighed and vaccinated.  Pregnant women are also given special attention.  The process takes the entire day.

13 April – One of the locals bring us a 4-month-old baby boy at 14:00 in the afternoon.  The child is furiously ill and unfortunately passes away an hour later.  The parents should have brought him to us earlier.

14 April – Susan visits Jenifer as she had a big operation.  She looks good.  Jannie starts building the shading for the coffee plants and finishes.

15 April – We leave Chandame at 4:00 in the morning back to South Africa.  The mission is to fix a ambulance engine from Nkhoma missionary hospital and to pick up a bigger generator for Nkhoma mission station.  This generator will help the 6 water pumps and water project at Nkhoma.  On top of this, 2 hydraulic jacks are brought back to South Africa to be fixed.  We spend the night in Lusaka, Zambia with Flip Lochner and Wilhelm Els.

17 April – We depart from Lusaka and arrive at Elephant Sands Botswana later that day.

21 April – We head to Bloemfontein for the It’s Time conference hosted by Angus Buchan.  A million people attend!  We are joined by Manna Botha, Willem de Villiers, Chris Jonker, Calla and Hetta Botha and Saul.

22 April – At 13:00, the It’s Time conference starts.  Before 13:00, praise and worship is done on a massive scale.  To kneel and pray with 1 million people is indescribable!  Some of the themes that stood out to me was God’s amazing grace and amazing love.  “I am a child of God!” – And no one can take that away from me as a Christian.  The holy spirit was dwelling among us.

23 April – We head back to Rawsonville from It’s time.

23 April – 14 May – We arrive back in Rawsonville and get to see all our children, grandchildren and friends.  We head to church, partake in communion, and really experience the work of the Holy Spirit.  Eddie van Dyk helps Jannie with mechanical work.  Eddie seemed to like not being an accountant for a day or 2!  Jannie also works on the ambulance engine and builds a trailer for the 30KVA generator to make it mobile.  We also start shopping for Hennie Smit and Dr. Renier Ten Haar.  We fix the Colt’s air conditioning and add a new viscose fan.  We also fix the oil leaks on the Colt.  Finally, the Colt is ready for the 4000km journey back to Chandame.

 

 

19 May – We head to Porterville to service Jaco’s bakkie.  We also attend our grandchildren’s Rugby and Netball games on the 20th of May.  Both Christian and Mia- Grace’s teams won!

22 May – Jannie continues working on the generator for the Nkhoma water project.  Calla Botha, Stefan van Eeden, Chris Jonker and Willem de Villiers assist in this task and give advice when needed.

28 May – 2 June – We attend the Pentecost service at the Goudini DR Church.  It was a special service and we were blessed to be part of a community of such strong believers.  As special thanks to WJ for his theme and sermon on this day.  God is a God of relationships!  After the sermon, we are invited to friends’ house for a fantastic meal and socializing.  A very special event.

 

 

3 June – We start packing to go back to Chandame.  Jannie finishes the generator system and everything runs smoothly.

4 June – We depart Rawsonville and begin the long journey back to Chandame.  After a long day’s driving, we stop and spend the night in Richmond.

5 June – We depart Richmond and head towards Kempton Park.  In Kroonstad, we stop to check and balance the 2 front wheels as the Colt vibrates a lot when driving.  Close to Vereeniging, we stop to change the left back tire.  This tire was severely damaged and it was changed in the nick of time.  We stop for coffee in Meyerton and arrive at Andre and Rita Fouche later that evening in Kempton Park.

6 June – Jannie goes shopping before leaving South Africa.

7 June – We depart Pretoria early in the morning but stop soon after departing as we need to replace a water pump on the Colt.  We spend the night in Ellisras.

9 June – We depart Elephant Sands to our next destination, Lusaka, Zambia.  We spend the night at Flip Lochner’s home.

11 June – We depart at 5:00am for Nkhoma, Malawi.  The road to Nkhoma is not an easy one to drive.  Luckily, everything runs smoothly at the Malawi border post and we don’t have to open our luggage.  We arrive at Nkhoma at 18:00, have dinner and go to bed early.

12 June – We wake up at 6:00, unload the bakkie and take the trailer with all its belongings to Hennie Smit’s workshop.  We start the generator and it survived the trip.  Everyone is happy, excited and thankful!  Especially Jannie as he spent a lot of time rebuilding the generator.  To celebrate, we head to Piet and Estelle for a cup of coffee and later that evening, we braai with Hennie, Elsabet and Dick Hollander.

13 June – We head to Lilongwe to repair Amanda van Saasen’s vehicle.  She’s been without transport for the last 5 months and used public transport.

14 – 16 June – Jannie works on the Isuzu bakkie, the Pajero and the Honda motorbike.  Amanda assists as mechanic.

17 June – We finish the auto motive repairs at 16:00.  We have dinner with Frances.

19 – 20 June – We get back to work with our usual tasks at Chandame.  The clinic is operational and mielies are transported.

22 June – We depart Chandame at 5:00am and head to Milange to pick up furniture and crockery that was donated by Ivan Stevens.  We spend the night here.

23 June – After breakfast, we head back to Chandame from Milange.  Arrive back at Chandame at 13:00.

25 June – Susan attends a sermon at Chandame.  It was amazing!  The women’s choir has grown from 6 to 18 members.  The Sunday school choir also did a great job.  Although a few words were lost in translation, the fellowship of the community is great.  Jannie did not attend as he had to do a recovery of a vehicle in Agua Boa.

26 June – Wynand and Beaulah Theron visit us from Tete.  We had a great get together.  Unfortunately they had to leave early because their friend was in a motorcycle accident.

1 March – Jannie takes Pastor Antonio and the elders to a funeral in Mphatsa.  They only arrive back in Chandame late that evening.  We help Paulina, a 12 year old at the clinic.  She got burnt because she got an epileptic fit and fell in the fire.  She returns every second day for burn treatment.  It’s a slow process, but progress was made.

2 March – Rory Benette gives a huge gift of Vetiver grass (a type of grass to stop erosion) to help with the erosion at our water source.  This gift helps us stop erosion.

15 March – Jannie is busy with “recovery” in Agua Boa, a mountain pass close to Chandame.  Johan and Heidie Kruger and their 3 kids arrived at Chandame late in the afternoon.  They are on an Africa trip with their camper and bikes heading to Jerusalem.  Along the way, they do evangelical work.  They stay with us and only leave CHandame on the 18th of March.  Jannie also fixes Johan’s bike.  The few days we spent with them are magical!

17 March – Dr. Renier Ter Haus and family spend the night with us en route to South Africa.

19 March – We visit Impale and 2 prayer houses.  The scripture for the day is from Genesis 19 verse 15 – 26: As morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, Up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be swept away in the punishment of the city.” But he lingered. So, the men seized him and his wife and his two daughters by die hand, the Lord being merciful to him and they brought him out and set him outside the city.

24 – 26 March – We visit Ivan at Milange.  A great weekend.

29 – 31 March – Susan’s very sick as she contracted malaria.

At this time, we’re still visiting family and friends in South Africa.  We also visit our dentist, optometrist and doctor for an annual checkup.

We are very thankful for the motorbike as he can now do the Lord’s work with a lot more ease and speed.  We would like to thanks the Slanghoek congregation for this amazing gift and blessing.

God Bless!

1 December – 75 patients visit the clinic.  At 13:00, I went to our kitchen feeling weak and realize I have malaria.  I was horribly ill.  Jannie was busy with a recovery for mpy in Harare.

1 – 4 December – Piet and Estelle du Plessis from Nkohoma visit us.  It was great having them at Chandame.  Estelle assisted in cooking and Piet made a scrumptious potjiekos meal.  I was not a good host because of the malaria.

10 December – We spend the night at Johan, Anina and their kids.  They are new friends we met in Mozambique.

11 December – We depart at 5:00am to transport Fernando’s belongings from Vila to Milange.  He is a student at Hefsiba, Vila.  We drive in the pouring rain and spend the night in Milange.  The next day we head for Milange to pick up Hennie Smit’s items to be sent to South Africa.

We end off our year feeling that God put us here for a reason and we just need to be obedient to his will and word.  Exodus 33; verse 21 – And the Lord said, “Behold there is a place by me where you shall stand on the rock.

God Bless!

On Wednesday the 9th, the worker at the pump station at Linthipe river informed us that the river dried up. They had to switch on the pumps. The next morning, they switched on the generator with the 3 pumps. God has provided again! Everyone praised and worshiped God’s goodness.

 

On the 14th, Rian and Saretha Terblanche slept over at Chandame. Rian does Veritas training. He is empowering leaders to spread the word of God.

 

The 16th, Jannie transported loads of sand and wood for the locals. It seemed like the rain was coming. We have been praying for rain because the locals needed rain before they could start with sowing.

 

I had about 50 patients on the 17th, most of the cases being malaria. This time of the year, malaria is bad.

 

On the 18th we drove to Tete for a dentist appointment and to do some shopping. We visited evangelist, Joshua at Nkondedzi. We gave him bananas and 4 bags of instant soup. His ministry’s people are poor and in need of food. We now get rain every day and is so thankful for it! About 40km from us, Frelimo killed 19 people! One must pray for Mozambique in these difficult times.

 

On Sunday the 20th we had a big downpour and we thanked God for the rain!

 

The 22nd, Jannie use the road-grader to level the road. It was raining and Jannie ended up drenched but he was satisfied about work he did.

 

On the 23rd, Jannie finished off levelling the road to the farm (Mwala Madzi). Driving to the farm is easier and quicker! The clinic is still open from 9 to 12pm daily. Every day at 1 o’clock it starts to rain and all the farmers are in their fields. All the locals are so dependent on the rain for their crops to grow.

 

Hennie and Elsabet Smit from Nkhoma, came to visit us from 25-28 of November. On the 26th Hennie helped Jannie to move a 40 foot container with the towing truck. We want to use it for storage. The roof of the container is bent but it is still in a good condition. They worked for 7 hours to get the container back to Chandame. The container is now ready for storage. Thanks to Hennie for helping with this huge task, Jannie wouldn’t have been able to move the container on his own.

 

On the 27th, Jannie had to help with a breakdown. Luckily, Hennie was around to help.  On the 29th, Jannie had to fix the drive shaft of the broken truck recovered in September.  A tow in truck from Zimbabwe assisted and we had a difficult time completing the job at hand.  This job continued until the 30th of November.

God Bless!

At four o’clock on the 2nd, we headed to George from Kempton Park. Close to Uniondale, the gearbox started giving us trouble and we had to drive in 4th gear to George. God was so good, he protected us and guided Jannie with the right tools to get to George.

 

Our children and grandchildren were so surprised to see us and we had a lovely get together. Jannie had to hire a trailer to transport the Colt to Rawsonville. Jannie’s younger brother, Herman helped to tow the trailer with his Everest. Jannie left the Colt in Rawsonville and lucky for us, the Ford was still in Rawsonville. Jannie decided to drive back to George with the Ford Bakkie.

 

After Jannie drove back to George, he picked me up.  We fetched the generator on his older brother’s farm with the help of Jacques and Christian.  We then headed back to Rawsonville on the 4th of October.

 

We were fortunate to celebrate Christian and Gabriella’s birthdays on the 4th and 6th. It was special to us because our plan was only to go back to South Africa in December.

 

On the 6th, Jannie asked Rawsonville electric to build him a 3 phase board.  This would help with the electricity supply from the generator to the 3 pumps. Jannie ordered all the cables that he needed for the completion of every bore hole. Andre Fouche was such great help and he collected 6 pumps that we ordered in Johannesburg. This made our life easier so that we can get back to Nkhoma.

 

On the 17th, we were still in Rawsonville. Jannie had to service the Ford bakkie that was going to take the generator back to Malawi.

 

At 4am on the 21st of October we started driving back to Malawi. We arrived in Kempton Park later that afternoon. The drive to Kempton Park with the generator went without any problems.

 

On the 22nd, we decided to take a day off and just rest before we continued with the drive back to Malawi. On the 23rd, we departed from Kempton to Malawi via Botswana and Zambia. We were on the road from the 24th to the 26th. At the border, we didn’t have to open the bakkie or the trailer. Nobody asked us questions about our load and that was just another sign that God was with us all the way. We also did not have any problems with the bakkie and that just shows you that prayer works. On the 26th, 9:30pm we arrived at Nkhoma, tired, but thankful.

 

We drove back to Chandame on the 27th, but we only stayed for 4 days.  We had to drive back to Nkhoma on the 31st and stay there for 10 days as Jannie had to help Hennie.  They installed the generator, water pumps, pipes and the electricity supply. They worked from early in the morning till about 4pm. It was hot and dry, because of the lack of rainfall.

 

God Bless!

On the weekend of the 10th we visited Nkhoma. Jannie fixed a lorry and helped with other repair work.

 

The 19th, I saw 43 patients at the clinic. Most of the patients were elderly. It was Pensioners’ day and the state uses our property to hand out the pensions.

On the 20th, Jannie worked on Chembekeso’s bakkie clutch and gearbox. He needed to get a new kit from South Africa.

 

On the 21st, Jannie worked on the generator. The solar toilets’ pipes were painted and we transported a load of sand. Pastor Isaias came to visit us; he was our previous pastor. At the clinic, one of the mothers left her new born baby at home without a babysitter to come to the clinic.

 

On the 24th, the police came to fetch Jannie. A lorry had an accident and 2 people were stuck in the cabin. He got both passengers out. One unfortunately died and the other was taken to the hospital.

 

He towed out two big trucks and helped to start one of the trucks. The next day he had to tow out a truck that went off the road. It took him 4 hours and he had to use all his cables because of how far the car had fallen.

 

On the 28th, we started driving to South Africa.  We had to collect parts we need to fix the Nkhoma missionary station’s water pumps. Jannie phoned his brother and asked if we could use his generator for the missionary station.  Malawi’s electricity supply is unpredictable. If you don’t have electricity you do not have a water pump. The generator can help all 3 water pumps function until the Eskom lines are installed.

 

God Bless!

On the 2nd, Kobus Odendaal from the Western Cape Missionary office visited us for 2 days. We took him on a tour of the farm and showed him our water project. There are 2 reservoirs that can each hold 40 000 litres of water. The water is from a natural spring and are carried by gravity for 4.7km by means of an irrigation pipe to the different places in Chandame. We appreciated his visit a lot!

 

On the 4th, Jannie transported corn and worked on the hooks that he needs when he tows in the containers. I had to drive to Limbuni to go and get some eggs. I left the bakkie running when I got out at Peta Bennet’s place to get the eggs. When I reached the back of the bakkie it started rolling backwards. I tried to get back in die bakkie to hit the brakes but I was unsuccessful. Suddenly the bakkie came to a standstill and behind the right wheel there was a big rock! I was still in a lot of shock while driving home but also so thankful that nothing bad happened. Later that day I returned to the scene and the rock that stopped the bakkie was not there! I was so amazed! We serve a wonderful God! He saw that I was in trouble and he did something about it. Jes 59 verse 1

 

Every day we had a standard routine. I had clinic duty from 9 to 12. Most of the patients had flu symptoms, stomach problems, back pain and skin sores. A four-year-old came to the clinic with a head wound. He was helping his dad hunt mice (the locals usually put the mice on a skewer and barbeque it) when he got in the way of the pick axe. He was so brave when we treated his wound. Sarah’s leg (see previous update) is almost healed.

 

On the 7th of August we went to a church service in Chandame. The scriptures were Num 13 verse 26-32 and Joh 14 verse 1-6. It is our responsibility to encourage one another. Be faithful to Jesus Christ so that you can enter his Kingdom.

 

On the 8th, Jannie worked on the road to the farm. I had about 30 kids at the school for the day and I did hand eye coordination with them. We also asked people in South Africa to pray for peace in Mozambique.

 

On the 9th, Jannie had to transport more corn. 44 bags of 50 kg each. Our workers had to cut reeds for the fence around our home.

 

On the 10th we had to transport stone, sand and bricks so that we could finish off the solar toilets.

There was still restlessness between the two political parties, but everything at Chandame was restful and quiet.

 

The weekend of the 13th we went over the border and camped at Fat Monkey in Malawi. We went back to Chandame fully rested and ready for all the challenges that we are faced with every day.

 

On the 16th, we went to Lilongwe to buy medicine for the clinic and stock up on some food supplies. We met up with Amanda van Saasen. She has lived in Malawi for 21 years doing missionary work. She is an amazing and strong woman.

 

On the 18th there was a funeral for a man who drank poison. There were problems between him and his wife. Our workers were really upset. They buried him like a dog. It was so sad and it just made us realise that there is so much missionary work to be done in Mozambique.

 

The weekend of the 20th we had a choir competition at Chandame. The youth choir wanted to raise money so that they can buy uniforms for the choir. We attended the festivities on Sunday. It was incredible! The choir sang with so much enthusiasm. They raised half of the money that they need for their uniforms. They still need the rest, but God will provide! Jannie also had to take Pastor Daniel to one of the prayer houses in Impale on the 21st.

 

The Monday of the 22nd God’s light shined brighter than the sun!! We were still working on the solar toilets using the method of the Barefoot Architect. We still need parts for the generator from South Africa.

 

On the 26th we had a meeting with the owner of the property that our water source is on. The agricultural developments are endangering the water source so we came up with a solution that the church should buy the land from him and he approved.

 

From the 26th to the 28th the Presbytery meeting took place at Chandame. Church elders and ministers of the congregation attended the meeting. Pastor Daniel also preached his last sermon. The verse he highlighted was Phil 4 verse 4 to 9. He is leaving us after 8 months at Chandame. The Synod relocated him to Mpatso to so that he can manage the farm project. So we are again looking for a new pastor.

 

Patients that were treated during August – 320.

 

God Bless!

Proverbs 27 verse 9

Ointment and perfume delight the heart.  And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.

 

On the 3rd of July we had a sermon at Chandame and the scripture was John 15 verse 1-8. The message was to bear good fruit and abide in God.

 

On the 6th, Hennie and Elsabet Smit surprised me by visiting us on my birthday.  It was really special for me.  An outreach group from Wellington also spent the night on their way back to South Africa. The visit from the group was also very special because we made new friends in Christ.  A group of Potchefstroom also slept over at our place on their way to Malawi. We are feeling blessed with all these visits from different groups.

 

We had 9 days of light rain here in Chandame.  This is good for the crops and the plants. On the 10th of July Jannie got malaria again. Every one prayed, because he was very sick. There is definitely power in prayer.

 

I AM A GIFT FROM GOD!  Everyone must remember that!

 

On the 14th, Wynand, Martin, Lance and Candice (all members of Joshua Generation) spent the night.  It was an amazing visit! They prayed for Jannie’s knee and since then his knee is much better. There is power in prayer! They also prayed for the healing of my hernia.

 

Psalm 94 verse 19, 22.  “My God is the rock and my refuge”

 

Monday to Friday I had the clinic duty as usual from 9 to 12.  Luckily the malaria patients were less. The adult patients only had common flu symptoms and the babies and young children, bronchitis. Please remember to pray for the sick!

 

On the 28th, Jannie helped the Nkondedzi congregation transport sand, stone and bricks with the tractor and trailer to the site where they want to build a church.  Nkondedzi is 40km from Chandame.  He also helped them to lay the foundation

 

At the end of every month we look back and just praise the Lord for taking care of us and never letting us down. God is definitely in charge! We will not be able to survive Mozambique without God’s grace.

 

Patients helped at the clinic: 261

 

 

God Bless!
