An encouraging email ...

Hi 
I just thought I'd let you know to encourage you that this morning I've transferred 2 gifts from different RFC members within the church to 2 other RFC families as anonymous gifts to bless them. This happens fairly frequently so just thought you may like to know. 
Thanks,
Karen

Cityhill Church, Jo'burg

Liz and I returned this morning from a 5 day trip to CityHill Church, Jo'burg, which is led by Sibs Sabanda. 
Whilst there we stayed with Sitho & Miranda, he who was an elder with us here at RFC, and is now an elder at CityHill. 
Liz & I spoke at their Men's & Women's breakfasts, visited their foster home project and joined them on their food bank run. I preached at their Sunday meeting, which was followed by a BBQ for their wider leadership (where we were interviewed on balancing marriage & ministry). We also visited PJ Smythe's church 'Godfirst' which was really interesting.
To be honest it was a bit of a whirl but we did spend a LOT of time listening & learning from them. They are exploring a discipleship strategy and I've asked Sibs to speak on this when he is with us in November. 
We also found a few hours to drive out in the bush and play in Sitho's Discovery: top-tastic fun!
