Viva Cuba

Viva Cuba

Our time in Cuba was almost like a time warp going back to the early 1950’s, vintage cars, horse carriages, music on every comer, no internet and street vendors everywhere. What an experience and privilege to have had a month in Cuba. We faced the language barrier with body gestures and our Spanish booklets. Embraced every moment and laughed a lot with those first country giggles when you still in shock that you’ve left South Africa.

This was what it was like to be Jesus

This was what it was like to be Jesus

Turning water into wine. Telling fishermen to be his followers. Followed around by spiritually-hungry people, searching for truth. Feeding five thousand people with a little boy's lunch. Setting people free from law and leading them into grace. Yes, that's my Jesus. This same Jesus allowed Distant Worlds to get a taste of what that felt like during our week in the Andes mountains.

It was a dream come true. Rattling, shaking and bumping up zigzag mountain passes to the village of Incahuasi. This was where we would sleep for five nights. We drove for four hours on 100km on a single-lane, dusty, serpentine path. In the Andes Mountains. I almost couldn't believe it.

The mountains were colossal, stretching 3130m into the heavens. My eyes were as wide as saucers as we drove past mountain villages, with hand-sown rice fields and horse-drawn carts. The women wore the most beautiful, colourful, handmade clothes. Not much has changed in these villages from 100 years ago.

We shared bibles with many far-away schools in isolated towns. The average amount of students were 40 in the whole school. It was interesting to note that most of these people had never even left their mountain town. They didn't know about things such as beaches, skyscrapers of drive-thru McDonalds. They knew more about mountain trails than LonelyPlanet and their diet consisted of things they had planted and cultivated themselves. A whole new world. "Lord, what do I say to these children? We come from two different worlds. We don't even speak the same language - they speak Quechua and I only speak primitive Spanish. Holy Spirit, speak through me please..."

A glimpse into your eyes

Today I am halfway through the journey of a lifetime, an adventure with You, Lord, Creator, Lover, Father, Friend. I remember how You captivated my heart by calling me to an adventure. You invited me "come with Me" and promised that it will be wild, great and full of You. Thinking back on the past four months it was already all of that and more... Reality struck me for a moment, as I perceived the beauty around me, the palm trees, the Caribbean ocean, the small islands so close that I can see the white beaches and hear the drumbeat of the reggae music.  With a big fat question mark on my face at the realization of where I'm at, I stand awestruck by the  mysterious way that You pursued me out of the hands of the enemy. And at Your perfect master plan to make me fall completely in love with You. Lord, I don't want to forget, please don't let me forget how Your loving arms wrapped around this broken girl for the first time. God remind me of every whisper and make me aware of that feeling over and over again. You are faithful, God and You are real.You called me into a plan, perfectly laid out in the palm of Your hands. And what motivates me to follow You wherever You lead are the puzzle pieces that You release bit by bit into my life. Those are the only parts I can hold on to, Lord, because whatever I lay my feet upon will crumble beneath me, but You are the cornerstone which my feet  are steadfast on. I will pursue You my King, I will dig deeper. What You reveal to me will be my only fortes and shelter. I'm nothing God.. But to You I am someone. Your the only one who could take this hater and turn her into a lover, who could recreate this destroyer into a reconciler. Once I was a manipulator, now I am an encourager. You took my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh... Once I was a slave, but now I'm a Son. I once was a PROSTITUTE but now I am a BRIDE. Yes, You manifested the most beautiful love story in me, Lord. I found my refuge in everything but You, giving my heart away several times, even though its purpose was to ever be in your perfect hands. You were always waiting for me, always turning back to me, always LOVING me. You are the greatest Love story ever written, Jesus Christ. You will forever be on my lips...

JUST GO!!!

JUST GO!!!

I think i'm only coming to the realisation of what God has called me to as His child now. Saying that - it is still a journey. What it means to say "yes" and what He means when He tells me to go.

The recipe of the things of His heart..


Taking a peek back on the journey, I realize how you really only see the bigger picture of God's master plan, once you turn around and look at the memory.
