The dirt road leading to 7 Rivers Farm, which is Kelly and Cherise Smith’s property, is long and dusty. You can begin to see the dryness of winter in the area, which we’ll see more of later. This road crosses the wayward and windy river 7 times before we’ll arrive at the farm. Zulu land is about a 20 minute drive from the outskirts of the beautiful ocean resort city of Durban, South Africa. As you’ll see, the difference 20 minutes makes is night and day!

A Five Week Adventure
How would you like to go on a 5 week adventure with Steve to Poland, Romania, South Africa and Zambia? You would be traveling by plane, train, car, boat, bus. You would get to visit with our dear friends and partners along the way as well as take a 14 hour drive to visit with a group of people that are hearing about Jesus for the first time. You would get to sleep out in tents, cross crocodile infested waters, drive on roads that are shared with trucks and cars and ox-drawn carts, get to love on people, share Jesus, and see what God is doing through dear people like you.
Thanks for Detouring WITH Me
Monday 7am Kabwe, Zambia. Sun through windowI’m sitting here on the floor in my room with the sun shining through the clouds into my window.

What I Didn’t Mention Last Month About Overheating in Sudan
We touched a little on my “overheating” challenge in the Sudanese SPLA division military compound in our last month’s newsletter. If you will bear with me, I’m pretty sure that I need to share, as Paul Harvey would say, “the rest of the story.”

A Spiritual Battle in South Sudan
As you may know I am in Juba, South Sudan. It is very important to these people that you make sure you say “South Sudan” and not just “Sudan”. They fought long and hard, with much loss and sacrifice
