My Blog

The purpose of me writing this blog is in order to encourage other Christians to continue running the race, right to the very the end.

At times there have been people who have come along-side of me, who have strengthened my weary knees.

May this blog serve you in the same way.

God Bless.

Namibia Trip – Day One

By Claudia Burger | May 22, 2017

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.…

Dear Friends I recently recorded three YouTube videos on How to Read the Bible and Understand it.

Bitterness and Unforgiveness

By Claudia Burger | Sep 5, 2012

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

By Claudia Burger | Jun 28, 2012

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.

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,…
