Driving Miss Daisy

The last few days have been NUTS. We are running around doing paperwork and getting settled into a rhythm. The past few days we applied for medical insurance – South Africa has the best medical insurance. Dicovery has been voted as the best scheme in a worldwide competition. This weekend we will preach at one of the churches in Alberton – a town in the North of Johannesburg. Last night was spent studying the parable of the prodigal son. We could identify with the son in more than one way. For a start we are also screwed up – like him (and you). Secondly – we experienced the joy of a homecoming. My mom prepared a very traditional South African meal when we arrived – lamb, potatoes, carrots, sweet patatoes and rice – YUMMIE. In the Third place we heard several comments from brothers that mom always give us the best treatment – they said the prince and princess returned. It is good to be home! We spent some time with friends today. I visited with Slimer – I drove to the appointment with my dad’s latest project – a Carmen Gia. It was kinda ancient-future driving with Miss Daisy.
