As I type this post my husband is on a plane to go meet the President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma! We are so blessed to have one of the Presidents daughters on our board of directors for Project O. Last month we had a board meeting and Gugu (above) flew to Durban for the meeting. The meeting was on the farm! It was so great to get to spend some quality time with Gugu. She is an amazing woman, who loves God and loves her country.
After our meeting she shared her heart with us, of how she 100% believes in the work that we are doing here with the orphans of South Africa. She promised to start some balls rolling as far as funding.
Well yesterday she gave Mart a call to tell him that he needed to fly to Pretoria today. She would pick him up from the airport and take him to the Presidential house, where he would get to spend some time with her father, THE PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA!!!!!!!
Oh and he needed to pack an over night bag as he was going to be spending the night at the President's house and having breakfast with him tomorrow morning! Im sorry but that doesnt just happen to people like us. We are just a couple of people from the uk, living in a tiny cottage on a farm. We have had a really crappy few months, I mean REALLY crappy, and yet we get a phone call saying that the President wants to have Mart over for a sleep over! HAHAHA!
I will tell you what.....the favour of God is astounding. It blows my mind. He is so good to those who love Him and obey His commands.
Please pray for Mart today. Pray that God gives him the words. Please pray for President Zuma, that God softens his heart and that the Holy Spirit goes ahead of Mart and prepares the way. Please pray that in all of this God's will is done.
