A strange old week in Chris Nissen Park last week typified by the complete absence of members from my bible study and only two ladies from CNP at Paula's cell group. Part of the problem is the plethora of public holidays just now, as folk get into holiday mode and find it hard to get back into a normal routine. This coming weekend is another long weekend with public holidays on Friday and Tuesday, so Monday is also a write off for many. Whilst it's great to have some time off it can get a bit frustrating from a continuity point of view so this week and next will probably be no different.
I took Trevor, Basil and Tom to see Vicky at the D.P. Marais TB hospital in Cape Town this morning. Vicky has been there for a few months now and will be there for a few more before being discharged home. Vicky is looking great and has put on 7Kgs since his admission which is really good news. Our trips to see him are very enjoyable and we're trying to visit him on a fortnightly basis to help keep his spirits up. I'm really missing Vicky from my bible study as he is such a useful member and a willing contributor. Please pray for Vicky, pray for swift healing of his TB and for a full recovery by his body.
