I’ve been mulling over the concept of TIME.

We try to save time, to make time, to stop wasting time, to find time, to be on time, to be in time.

We connect time to our understanding of wealth, to our sense of accomplishment, and we connect it to our sense of failure.

I’m reminded of that sinner on the cross next to Jesus. At the last moment, his destiny was changed.

There still is time.

Our happiness is not intrinsic to time-things. You’re not too old to start something new, or to make a career change. It’s not too late to forgive or make your peace. You’ve not wasted time — you’ve learned valuable lessons.

He is faithful to complete the Good Work He started within you.

And that takes time.
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Be honest.
Be kind.
Work diligently.
Grow from failure.
Keep dancing.

with two left feet
keep on dancing
beat by beat
breath by breath
hand in hand
step by step
don’t let these moments
slip away
while the world’s still turning

I’m turning 30 in a couple of months, and though there are things I might’ve approached differently if I had a do-over, I’m thankful for every sun spot and wrinkle and gray hair because it’s evidence of BEING ALIVE.

2020 has been weird, but let’s not let the past hold us back from what the future may hold.

Rapid 14

During the summer holiday of 2018, I visited Liezl and Arthur at their home in Livingstone, Zambia. I met this lovely family in 2016, when they were visiting my home church in South Africa.

I remember being excited by the way they spoke about Kingdom and ministry and travel, and we kept in touch.

It was during this visit to Zambia, my second trip to Zambia with in a year, that God started speaking to me about strategic relationships.

I’ve been involved in short-term missions since 2010, and for two years, I headed Every Nation Faith City‘s local outreach programs. Mid-2018, I felt the release to quit my day-job, so to speak, and set off in obedience to the call God placed on my life.

In May 2019, I’ll be part of a team of missionaries from all over the world, who’ll attend the Advanced Missions Training on Overland Mission’s Logistical base in Livingstone, Zambia.

I feel that AMT (Advanced Missions Training) is an important steppingstone for the next season, and especially toward my heart for the Gospel in Africa.


Romans 10:14-15  (AMP)
14 But how will people call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how will they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher (messenger)?  15 And how will they preach unless they are commissioned  and sent [for that purpose]? Just as it is written  and forever remains written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”

You can contribute by partnering with me in prayer, or contributing financially. The total cost for AMT is $6000 (six thousand USD), which includes all expenses such as travel and accommodation for the time I’ll be training in Zambia.

Would you please prayerfully consider making a contribution as partner in the Kingdom?


To join me in Kingdom partnership, you can donate to Overland Missions, and reference my name, or contact me directly, and I’ll provide any information needed.

However God leads you to respond, please know that I have deep appreciation for your partnership and support!


I look forward to sharing more exciting news with you soon!

May you be greatly and abundantly blessed!
