Wonderful account and writing......I felt like I there with you every step of the way. Thank you for taking the time to relate the whole story and I'm sure Sealiner's are all checking their bank balances, calendar and consulting with their witchdoctors on when best to ask the wife about a trip to Angola.

Kudus and bucket loads of manna.

Baie dankie vir jou tyd en moeite met die opstel van die verslag.
ons weet hy is nog nie klaar nie.

sulke treads het ons nodig, veral die klein dingetjies, wat mos saak maak.

sterkte met die tik verder, weet dit gaan nog lank vat.
en ons kan nie wag vir al daai pics nie!!!!!!!


Readers:
I have already discussed pm messages with Kenny.
Kenny has agreed, to rather have the things in the open, for all to read and see.
then all of us will be able to save/ budget correctly for such an amazing trip.
so please rather ask all questions here.

Thank you for the kind comments guys!! Much appreciated !!

Before I continue I begg permission to post a poem that I wrote wile we were there. I want to give credit where credit is due. Yes we came back safely, but we faced a lot of challenges while we were in Angola and yet we were kept safe...

ANGOLA GEBED

In 'n ander land baie ver van die huis;
Groet ons die son, wat oor die horison reis;
Met 'n stok in die hand en die see se gedruis;
Maak ons gereed vir die dag, al ons sorge verguis.

Uit liefde is ons almal saamgesnoer;
Vyf van ons wat na die waters loer;
'n Liefde gevorm deur God se natuur;
'n Liefde vir hengel, het ons hierheen gestuur.

Vader seen ons vandag, hier langs die strand;
Blus hierdie drange, wat diep in ons brand;
Here lei ons vandag, en maak ons ook werd;
Om kragte te meet, met u skeppings-werk.

As dit u wil is Heer, wil ons u vra;
Om al 5 van ons, op U hande te dra;
Hou ons ook veilig, teen enige gevaar;
Ons belowe ons sal, al u visse bewaar.

Graag wil ons u dank, vir hierdie lieflike prag;
'n Voorbeeld aan ons; van u geweldige Mag;
Dankie dat ons; as mens hier kan staan;
Dankie dat U, die weg vir ons baan.

En laaste maar nie die minste nie Heer.....
Dankie dat u ons drange verstaan!!!

AMEN
