I try and do a family update as often as possible, so here’s the latest…
The past couple of months have been so very busy, trying to fit it all into one post is not going to happen so here are just a few highlights and lowlights from the past few weeks.
Summer is supposed to be drawing to a close here in South Africa, but the temp is still up in the 30’s. This past school term both of our big boys were on the school swim squad and in their interschool gala they came away with a heap of medals each. Its was a super fun, but very hot day and every bit if me wanted to be in the pool with them 😀.
Their school reports yet again blew us away and we couldn’t be prouder of them both. Even with Jesse’s learning difficulties he managed to pull in some pretty impressive grades. He’s a star! Joe is as steady as usual and came 9th in his whole grade for last term. He got 100% on his exam last week and is constantly receiving his Academic excellence badge. What a legend.
And then there is Hudson… Sweetest child in the world. Full of joy and love, super smart and very funny.
Last month I’ve been really battling with my health and ended up fighting and awful bout of bronchitis. Not having medical aid or financial freedom to go to the doctors is very hard, especially when dealing with chronic illness. This past month my body really hit a wall and I ended up on bed rest for nearly a week.
Being who I am meant that bed rest was incredibly difficult for me and I still managed to arrange a wedding for a homeless couple and keep up with ministry. In the end a doctor friend of mine came to my house, put me on a drip and knocked me out for 24 hours… Call it “forced bed rest”!! It worked and a couple of days later I was good to go again!
During my days of sickness Mart held everything together. Dealing with the boys, cooking, making sure I had space to rest. He is currently working on his own project (we will talk More about that when its up and running). His heart is still very much with education for the rural/high vulnerability communities and his current project will help to fund that passion. Its exciting to see him so passionate and focused.
