Farewell Cape Town...
It is now only a few hours before Candace and I begin our travels to Indiana. My visa interview went well and we are so thankful to be reunited and travelling together again. But that being said there have been some sad farewells on this side as we say goodbye to my family here in Cape Town. We have tried to see all of my friends and family over the past week or so. It has been sad saying these farewells, but we are thankful for how God has led and guided us through the past year and a half since we began this process. We also know that we will certainly be back every now and then to visit, so it is not truly "Goodbye", but rather "See you later!"
On Sunday we had a family farewell braai (barbecue) with my whole family and aunt and cousin's family. It was lovely being together for one last South African braai. I'm definitely bringing the braaiing tradition to Indiana! :-) Thanks for reading - more when we're on the US side of the Atlantic! Much love!

I am a 32-year-old South African whose journey with Mercy Ships began in 2007 when I joined the M/V "Africa Mercy" in Liberia. I met my wife Candace in Sierra Leone in 2011 and together we served with Mercy Ships until December 2012. We worked with Mercy Vision in South Africa during 2013, and are now settling into a new life together in the USA.
If you would like to support Candace and I, please send us an e-mail to the address listed on my profile. Thanks!
We are now no longer serving with Mercy Ships, so please don't send any more mail to Candace and I on the ship. Thanks!
