The second week is underway for those who traveled from the Shetek conference of the ELCA to the Ondini Circuit of the ELCSA.  We are playing tourist and have been to see some of the wild part of Africa.  We made our way to the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi park two days ago, but today we must go back.

wonderful scenery


The scenery has been beautiful and the animals plentiful but it is time to get back.


give right of way to animals, or else


Elephant and rhinos were on the road and we had to wait for them to clear off the road.


mud bath


These rhinos were intent on their mud bath right next to the road.  The male even charged another vehicle when it got too close.


thatching the roof

As we leave the park we see some folks thatching a roof.


I get a kick out of the the signs on trucks that say “Abnormal/e”  It’s their way of saying, wide or oversize load.

We make our way up hill from Durban.  I didn’t realize how much we lost in elevation coming down hill to Durban.  Going back up we knew we were climbing as we were constantly downshifting.  Then when a truck would pull out in front of you, you had to wait for them to pass and then clear out of the way.

We make it back to the Centre so that Ted and Mark can put on a workshop for  lay ministers.  They kept at it until late at night.


Saturday found us finishing up projects at the Centre.


finishing at the high tunnel

We got the plastic mulch put down in the high tunnel and put the last pieces on it.

the trench is covered

The trench is filled and the area leveled.

This is our last day at the Centre.  What we don’t get done today will have to be done by those at the Centre.  We are going to leave some real good people behind.  The will is there to get the job done.  They can do it with the correct training and tools.  We all wish them the very best.
