We had a great week of partying. On Thursday we had our parents and siblings over to the house and they officially inaugurated our table and house. We had a wonderful evening, Lollie and I used it as an opportunity to thank them for their love and help in the last year. They’ve been so supportive since we returned from the USA.

After the Sunday service, the whole Kleipot Community chilled at our house. Some jumped into the pool (remember it’s summer in Africa) others were forced into the pool. (That would be me) A sixty-year old lady pushed me into the pool! She lured me towards the water and simply pushed …

Part of the week’s festivities was to tell the story of why we were able to buy the house in the first place. We thanked and still thank God for his goodness. Some Spiderman theology struck me. In the words of Spidey’s grandpa:

“With great gifts (power) , come great responsibility.”

In the words of a more reliable source,

“I will make you into a great nation
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.”

Genesis 12:2

May it be so…
