Namibia Trip – Day Two

Had one of the rusks from the complimentary pack I received from the guest house for supper last night, with orange juice from a bag I bought in Velddrif. I woke up the next morning at 02.15. Praying earnest – heartfelt prayers without words. ‘What next Lord?’ I fell asleep again after some time only…

Namibia Trip – Day One

Some time ago I thought it was time to do another field trip. Praying with individuals all along the way to the north of South Africa. At the same time I thought that people should take Angus Buchan’s prayers further. That what was going to take place on 22nd April should have a ripple effect.…

How to Read and Understand the Bible

Dear Friends I recently recorded three YouTube videos on How to Read the Bible and Understand it. Someone recently told me that they have been reading the Bible for years and they don’t understand it.

Bitterness and Unforgiveness

My favourite jewellery is pearls. A pearl is formed when an irritant like a grain of sand is swept into the oyster’s sell by a current and lodges in its flesh. The animal fights back, neutralising the intruder by coating it with a micro-thin layer of nacre, a silvery substance that is about 90% calcium…

When All Else Fails, Stand and Stand Again

I have just exited a period of discouragement and seemingly no faith. Thoughts like “what’s the use of praying? Your prayers are not getting answered anyhow. Some of your prayers have been going for decades. Nothing has changed. Why are you planning this missionary trip? What do you think YOU can accomplish? The task is…

Chapter One – A Reckless Faith

Claudia Burger Author and Christian

Chapter 1 Turkey This is my third night sleeping in the brothel. In fact it is really a cheap hotel overlooking the Black Sea in a quiet little border town in Turkey, frequented mainly by truck drivers. The walls are paper-thin. Tonight two men have the room next to mine. By the sound of their…

Faith in 2012 – A Necessity, Not a Luxury

Many of us are wondering what’s going to happen 2012. The recession does not seem to have any inclination to stop its downward slide. Are we going to experience or even see a cataclysmic collision in the heavenlies towards the end of the year? Some even expect Jesus to return this year. What if you,…
