south of somewhere

Hi, our names are Sarah and Nathan Cooper. We are based in Sheffield in England, but are preparing to move to South Africa in September '06 to join a church planting team in the Western Cape. We hope that this blog will keep you up to date with our progress as we embark on this new adventure. Watch this space... www.thepeopleschurch.info

Feeling hot hot hot!

Hi everyone! We're feeling the heat a bit over here as it's been 39 degrees for the last couple of days.

Tomorrow is the launch of the long-awaited new Mobile Ministry Unit. We'll be going into two of the townships, with a program of games, quizzes, teaching, singing and free ice pops for every child! We'll be drawing on every ounce of energy as we're expecting to see a thousand children over the two sites, and we'll be out in the heat from 2 o' clock until 6 in the evening. PLease pray for the smooth running, and thabnk you to every one who has supported the fund-raising. It is so exciting to see the dream finally become reality, and we're so pleased that the children will no longer have to walk so far ( the walk was several kilometers, and many of them arrive carrying smaller brothers and sisters.)

We are having a great time with Nathan's parents, and have been seeing some new places in Cape Town for ourselves as we explore with them. We have been so blessed to enjoy their company for a month and will be very sad to wave them off at the end of this week. They've had a really good glimpse of what life is like here, including some of the wildlife - another great spider story to be shared on next week's entry...
