Roof of Africa


This last Friday I took a day off and went to the Roof of Africa extreme enduro race.  This is perhaps the most difficult motorcycle enduro race in the world.  The riders go through the extreme terrain of Lesotho often under extreme weather conditions.  This year of 400+ riders that entered, only 62 finished the race!


Here's a couple videos and a picture.  Conditions got MUCH worse after I took these.  We got near 3.5 inches of rain during the weekend!

This is the last of the bronze class riders helping each other up a mountain.  The pictures really doesn't do justice to how steep it was.  The best of the "gold" riders just rode up.

Lesotho Update

Dear Praying Friends,
Here is a quick prayer and praise update from Lesotho and South Africa:

Praise:
  • This past weekend a teenage boy from the village came to Nt. Kali to ask if he could join our 5:00am Sunday men's prayer meeting! Eight or ten years ago he attended Stephanie's Wednesday afternoon children's meetings. He has always had a tender heart, and about a year ago he seemed to get saved. He has been away finishing high school so we didn't know how serious he was about serving the Lord, especially in the boarding school where he had little spiritual support. He's finished with school now, and it seems like he has kept the faith. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!
  • Rev. Mlambo reports a good spirit in the church at Manyatseng, South Africa recently. It seems that people there are really seeking the Lord.
Prayer:
  •  Please pray for a special out pouring of the Spirit on the villages of Manyatseng and Mauersnek in Ladybrand, South Africa. We are trusting the Lord for a revival there.
  • We are not free to share details, but we need your prayers about several matters we are facing at the moment.
  • Please pray for staff for Hope Christian Academy in Ladybrand. Specifically pray that God will provide the necessary permits for a girl who has applied to work at the school if it is the Lord's will for her to come.
  • Please pray for Pastor Liau and his family. His father passed away and will be buried this Saturday.
  • Please keep praying for the renovation of Matukeng Health Centre. The work is nearing completion in spite of challenges which include the theft of material and tools. Please pray specifically that God would prevent further theft and dishonesty!
Thank you so much for your faithful intercession!
Blessings,
Glenn, Stephanie, Kaitlyn and Kristell Gault
