It's Here . . . Finally!!!

Posted on March 20th, 2011

On the 8th of February we received the call we have been eagerly anticipating! Our container with truck, trailer and household goods has arrived in Gabs. Excitedly, we began to prepare for the 10 hour journey to the capital and on Friday the 10th, we set out. Since our Landcruiser is over 25 years old, our dear friend Heather Car-Hartley loaned us her car for our journey. The road is in fairly decent shape except for a 100 mile stretch that is basically a patchwork of pot holes, some large enough to swallow the little Peugeot we were driving. Needless to say, we were thankful to reach Gabs safely.

Upon arrival, we began to purchase some household items that are not available in Kasane. On Sunday, we were so blessed to meet with the brethren here in Gabs and are amazed at how God is using them to bring glory to His name. The building was packed with believers of all ages and from many nations. Afterwards we found out that this mother church has planted three other churches in the surrounding communities. They have also trained some of the young Christian men from the churches we planted in Shakawe and Ngamiland to be preachers to other areas of Botswana. We are excited and eager to be partners with them in the Lord’s work here in Botswana.

Monday was a busy day running around Gabs in preparation for clearing and opening our
container on Tuesday. We were at a kitchen store looking at cabinets when we received a dreaded call. OOOpps! “A mistake had been made! Your container is still in the port of Durban, South Africa, and to make matters worse, a truckers’ strike is on and no telling when your container will arrive!” Ahhhh, Africa!

So we finished our business on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning set off for Kasane and home.
