We finished up our week here in Phalaborwa last night with a really good Rock Show. There were about 300 people and the crowd had so much energy that it made the show great. Today is our day off and we are supposed to do nothing, so that is what Rachel and I are going to do. We are going to sit around the house and watch movies and do nothing. We drive to Ellisras tomorrow. Its about 5 hours away and it is right nean the Botswana border. Talk to you soon.

We are in the midst of our 4th week of tour. We are in a town called Phalaborwa (pal-a-bore-va), located in the north eastern part of South Africa, right on the border on the Kruger National Park. We are enjoying ourselves and Rachel and I have a great host family this week. We are staying a little guest house in the back yard of some people from the church. Its great to have some privacy and to be able to get away and be alone. The other day we, the whole team, drove to a dam to see if we could spot any crocodiles or hippos. Well, as were were driving back we saw a ton of elephants on the side of the road. There were probably 15 of them and they were just walking by this little stream, it was crazy. One of them was really close to the road and we just sat there next to it in the car, just checking him out. It was so cool. It was just funny seeing them on the road, not in a park, walking on public property. The week is going well and the shows are being recieved really well. There are some really cool testimonies of how we are really hitting home with a lot of the students at the shows. This week wasn't booked until 2 weeks ago and I am glad that we are getting to minister here in Phalaborwa. Hope all is well with you. Cheers.
