Aah, finally some time to sit back, reflect and give you an update on our team of ten and the work we were doing in South Africa.
 
I am on a flight from Durban to Cape Town with the team consisting of Paul Burnett, Neil Watson, Jacqui and Churchill Davy, Leanora Fearon, Caroline Higgins, Tracey Campbell and her two children, Charley-Jaye Campbell-Nation and Romario Campbell-Nation.  David Otoo and Jenipher Omubba who unfortunately experienced visa problems were unable to join us in S.A.
 
Neil and I arrived in Johannesburg on Friday, 28th July. We spent 2 nights in Johannesburg and had the opportunity to meet with SozoVision partners and catch up with my sister and her family.

A quick stop for a late lunch and straight to a meeting with High Calling Global Ministries, our host church in Durban.  The meeting went well, and work began immediately after the meeting sourcing equipment for the conference to be held on Wednesday, 09th August.

The next few days were spent meeting and rehearsing with the SozoVision partners in Durban in preparation for the team's arrival and the events in Durban.

On Wednesday, 2nd August, Neil and I hosted our first event, a workshop called, ‘Living Your Dream’ at High Calling Global Ministries. After much rehearsals and preparation, I realised at the workshop that I was singing solo for the praise and worship as Neil completely forgot to mention that he cannot play the keyboard and sing at the same time. Well nobody seemed to notice that the solo was unplanned and the workshop went on very well with positive feedback from the various attendants.

Paul, SozoVision’s Chairman, arrived on Thursday, 3rd August. This was another miracle as Paul had recently started a new business and towards the end thought that he could not join us. This was quite a worry as he was scheduled to speak at some of the events.

We had just enough time to take a quick tour of Durban.

Heart in hand, we finally got Paul to his destination. His drive in Herbie turned out to be quite an adrenaline rush - no safety belts, windscreen wipers that did not work (did I mention that it started to rain?)  The pleasures of Africa!

Dinner with friends consisting of authentic Durban curry cooked over an open fire gave Paul his colour back, or should I say added more colour.

Durban, here we come! Group arrives in Durban.
A quick check in and the group was whizzed to the next event - a gospel concert hosted by Voices in Praise. The concert was a great success with approximately 800 people in attendance. As always, Tracey Campbell was amazing. Her backup singers Leanora Fearon and Jacqui Davy did very well at very late notice as Tracey thought that she would have backup singers in South Africa. Neil, our resident musician, showcased his anointed musical ministry on the keyboard and bass, and together the SozoVision team made us all very proud.
