Word Riders 2013 Day 7 Nelspruit to Secunda

Today, dear 3 readers, was a Most Interesting day on the bike…

It started with my right mirror stripping it’s thread, and then I could see NOTHING behind me. 

We had an Awesome first visit this morning at Nelspruit Primary School. At the other schools we were there to hand out Bibles and pray for the children. At this school the pupils divided into small groups and prayed for us! We were so blessed!

After that we had the scenic but dangerous drive to Barberton. While the rest of the group visited the schools there, I went to the Ng Kerk, and uses some Quickset Steel to fix that mirror.

After the rest of the group joined me there, we had some coffee and snacks, prepared by the congregation.

After we left, it started to rain. We rode to Badplaas through thick mist, and it was really scary at times.

From Badplaas the road went over Carolina, Bethal, Hendrina and finally Secunda. It went theough some ugly coalmining areas, and the town qe are in tonight is famous for its fuel out of coal industry- a heavy polluter of the earth.

But the people here are hosting an excellent evening with hot food and lovely pudding. We were cold and miserable, but now we can look back on today, and be happy that we also completed today’s journey safely and with God’s grace…

And the pudding- my favourite- roly poly!

    • Jy het verby my huis gery! As julle volgende jaar dieselfde roete ry, kan julle op die plaas kom oorslaap. Ek het kampplek, ‘n abblusietjie met twee storte en lekker lapatjie vir ‘n vleisie braai.

      • Volgende jaar is die toer weer in die Weskaap, hulle skuif aan van provinsie na provinsie, verlede jaar was in die NoordKaap, en die eerste een twee jaar terug was in Natal en Transkei.

  1. Ewald this is such an exciting journey. How blessed you all are to bring the Bibles to the schools, to see the beautiful landscape. The food looks great, we do not have those dishes here.I feel blessed reading this.

  2. Ek kan nie eens onthou wanneer ek laas roly-poly poering gesien het nie !!! Dit was my Dad se ultimate fav en jy kon hom in ‘n wip vang daarmee.

    Jy laat my nou onthou Ruiter : na my Dad se dood was ons huishulp (wat jare lank vir ons gewerk het) ontroosbaar en die Woensdag (soos die gebruik was) het sy nagareg gebak – Roly Poly – en dit met ‘n geween wat eie is aan die Namakwalandse-naturelle dit neergesit en gesê : Ai Here, skep net vir my baas ook in, want ek het hierie vir hom gemaak.

    Dankie — jy het vandag ‘n goeie onthou met ‘n glimlag laat afspeel

  3. Man hoe lus word ek nou vir poeding! Bly julle het veilig gery en dat julle bederf word. Geniet die en veilig ry want hulle voorspel more swaar reen in ons kontrei.
