Along the Garden Route, the Rudolph’s have developed a team approach to ministry. This team, which is spread from Cape Town to George, occasionally meets to connect and share in life together.
On Friday, we met at a restaurant on the beach in the city of Plettenberg Bay. Over a traditional English breakfast, I was able to meet Wayne and his wife Kirstie and Colin and his wife Deanna. Wayne is the pastor of the church in Plett and Colin is the director of the Bethesda Recovery ministry. The Bethesda recovery ministry is a home where those recovering from alcohol and drug addiction can come to receive intensive counseling for their life dominating sins. Colin, the director of the home was gloriously converted while in prison in the UK.
After breakfast, we travelled to see his ministry and while we toured the facility, he shared the story of God’s amazing grace in his life. We were all challenged by the story he shared.
The rest of Friday was filled with relaxing and shopping, preparing for the busy weekend ahead.
I’ll write more about our amazing weekend later today. We are scheduled to be in a number of churches today, so I’m sure there will be lots to tell! Be sure to check back!
