Hartspad

Hartspad is an Afrikaans word meaning “path of the heart”.

Today I got to spend some wonderful hours outside, and did the first trail run (and honestly, first outdoor anything) since lockdown began in May!

I did a combination of walking with Marietjie and Felicity, and jogging back-and-forth, and it was lovely!

Hartspad Adventure Trails have many routes to choose from with varying lengths and levels of difficulty. The Yellow Route, which we did, is 6.3km in length, but running back-and-forth added a couple kilometers to the clock.

The winter scenery was exquisite, and I look forward to getting back on the trails soon!

Hartspad Adventure trails are hiker/runner/MTB friendly, with route markers clearly indicating the trails and difficulty (especially for MTB) along a beautiful course. I was very impressed with the route layout and the visible signage. Keeping fit and healthy is conducive to mental health, and today’s adventures certainly brought a measure of balance!

When I started using #runwildlivefree in 2018, it was because of a life-altering adventure I said yes to — stepping out in faith, and acting in obedience to the call of God on my life.

Ever since, I have been running around in remote areas of Africa (and the world) to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with unreached people groups — in Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and in the near future, the Democratic Republic of Congo. #runwildlivefree is not only about a life of travel and adventure, but of sharing the Gospel: so that others might live free.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because the Lord has anointed me and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings,”

Isaiah 61:1
Gospel & Grit


May you be greatly and abundantly blessed! May you see beauty in every season, and may He be your Source in all things!

May your heart be lead on paths of righteousness. May you be filled and refreshed by Holy Spirit. May you be guided by Him in all things. And may you have the courage to step into the Great Unknown, to pioneer the things that He has called you to!

Love in Christ, Cornelia 🇨🇩🤍🙌🏻

#runwildlivefree

THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, [Rom. 10:15.] To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, [Matt. 11:2-6; Luke 4:18, 19; 7:22.] To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion–to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit–that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
‭‭— Isaiah‬ ‭61:1-3‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
