R 50 235.53!

A traveller that has travelled the African continent knows what it means to be lonely, sad, filled with joy watching a beautiful sunset at a big river, or just quietly watching the African full moon over Lake Malawi.

That is how I felt yesterday. Nicole and Uwe, two German overlander friends, whom I met in Ethiopia during 2008, came to visit me. They brought a donation with, as well as a donation from Anja, another German overlander. With these two donations we completed our fund raising AND exceeding the R 50 000.00 mark.

Once again, thank you thank thank you!


The Magrietjies invited for tea. Also a few cancer patients attended. I was privileged to have Ina, my sister from the USA at the function as well as Uwe and Nicole from Germany.

Martie and Jakkie of the Magrietjies with me at the tea.

My sister Ina, and friends Nicole and Uwe from Germany.

Jakkie, the Magrietjie responsible for me, spoilt us with cake and coffee/tea.

No you can recover from all my blog posts over the recent months. It is time to rest. Goodbye for now.

    LODIE — to use your phrase –How do WE say thank you……..

    We, the Magrietjies of Naboomspruit, are managed entirely by volunteers. We endeavour to support the patients in our care to the best of our ability and expect nothing in return.

    The nursing sisters and Magrietjie care-givers strive to make the patients as comfortable as possible and to give them whatever support and nursing care that we can.

    The time and effort that you have put in to raise funds for our organisation is appreciated so much that we find difficulty in expressing our thanks, but be assured that this gift will be put to good use in the support and care of our patients.

    God bless you.

    Psalm 136:36
    “Give thanks to God in Heaven. His love endures forever”.

    As you lean back to relax, breathe out a sigh of pure contentment and revisit your wonderful achievement. Think on the wonder and miracle of it all. You are blessed indeed!

    Liewe Lodie
    Wat meer kan ek vir jou se as die volgende: ‘ek is tot alles in staat deur Christus wat my die krag gee” Fil 4:13 – en so leef jy daardie Getuienis uit deur nie op jouself te fokus nie maar op ander. Ek eer Abba Vader vir die lewe wat jy leef in Hom!

      Marlene, dit was ‘n eenmalige insameling van my vir die Magrietjies. Skakel asb direk met die Magrietjies om inligting oor hul aktiwiteite en insamelings te kry. Groete!

      Ek kan net noem dat die groot plakate wat dit adverteer het, vir meer as twee maande in die dorp opgesit was.
