Prepping and Packing

As the title suggests, we have been doing a lot of prepping and packing recently- Prepping for both our trip north to lead a Childrens Ministry Training Seminar and also for the arrival a team of nurses from Canada in one weeks time.
Both of these have also involved Packing- packing up the Bakkie , the cooler , tent etc, and also unpacking items for the nursing team- tents, dishes, bedding.
All this prepping and packing hasnt really made for good pictures.. i mean.. really how thrilling is it to pack the cooler??? But i have taken a few good ones on our walks- the cooler weather makes walking in the evenings so much more enjoyable. We will be really busy in the next few weeks, so it is nice to take some time to enjoy the beauty the farm has to offer. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.Beautiful sunset (heading down the driveway)
The fence line along the front of the farm- nicely cleared of any and all grass. This makes it easier for the guards to patrol the fence line.. and lessens the chance of fire jumping it in the dry season that is coming.

Waterfalls at the edge of our property.

Pond that the waterfalls flow into- one of the prettiest spots around!

Domingo, our shepherd with one of the MANY baby sheep that were born last week. He promised if I came at five when they go back into their pen for night he would catch me a few to cuddle. They are quite cute at this stage... once they get bigger they are just dirty smelly and really really loud.

awww. hes just soooo cute. This one was three days old.

OK- this one isnt technically on the farm, this is Domingo's brand spankin new Grandbaby. Here he is only three days old! He lives just across the river though.. so we will claim him as a beautiful things on the farm!

Tomorow (Wednesday) Rick and I head up north to teach our very first Childrens Ministry Training Seminar. Please pray for us as we travel on very poor roads for two days! Please pray for health for us (and our vehicle!) safety on the roads, and that the seminar would be a time of fellowship and learning for all involved. I look forward to posting some great pics from the trip next week! Blessings, Rick & Heather
