... and it rained

Thu Jan 14, 2016, 1:45 AM

The Rain was Beautiful

I witnessed something really beautiful this week :heart: For a very long time now, South Africa (where I live) had an absolutely terrible drought. I mean, it was seriously bad. Crops were dieing, and so were cattle ... the drought was just so bad, none of the farmers were doing very well. Aid was sent to the farmers (but not enough) and we all did A LOT OF PRAYING. We needed a serious intervention from God. One farmer actually committed suicide because his cattle was dieing from a lack of food ... it was bad guys. Here's some pics ...


BUT GOD INTERVENED, and it started raining.  It rained A LOT!  And the next post I saw, was one that really touched my heart.  It's a picture of a farmer crying, and praising God, when it started to rain.  God is so good, and this farmer truly felt it.

I hope that this is the end of this drought, and that even more farmers will praise God like this man did.  

Here are some other things that spoke to me recently:


The following testimony is also a South African story :heart: Please watch this short video - you'll really be touched by it.

An amazing story of the redemption of a drug addicted gangster who has an encounter with Jesus when he was at the darkest point of his life. Share this message of hope with someone who feels hopeless.

If you have a testimony like this, or know of someone who has one, please share it with me!!  I would love to see it!

“Whale Whisperer” by Anuar Patjane Floriuk

The pic, the winner of the 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest absolutely took my breath away.  It's hard to believe that this is actually a photo!

Diving with a humpback whale and her new born calf while they cruise around Roca Partida Island, in Revillagigedo, Mexico. This is an outstanding and unique place full of pelagic life so we need to accelerate the incorporation of this islands into UNESCO as natural heritage site in order to increase the protection of the islands against the prevailing ilegal fishing corporations and big game fishing.

Personal Testimonies

God has been dealing quite a lot with me, regarding sharing testimonies with others on what He has done for me. If I really think about it, He has really done so much miraculous and wonderful things for me. And, I'm not talking about the "miracle" of waking up each day, having food to eat, seeing a beautiful blue sky, etc. No no, I'm talking about REAL miracles, REAL encounters - all of it is just amazing if I look at it as a whole!!

I'm on a mission to write out all of these experiences, as they happen, and I will be sharing them with you all!! Have you had an experience like this with God before? An experience where you cannot deny that God exists, and that He loves you and He's taking care of you? If so, please share! I love hearing testimonies - It's like my personal drug :D

Every once in a while, you just have to laugh and have a good time:)

Never do anything you don't want to explain to the paramedics.

If it wasn't for physics and law enforcement I'd be unstoppable.

There are 3 kinds of people: those who can count & and those that can't.

If you can stay calm when all around you is complete chaos, you probably haven't fully understood the situation.

Don't knock on death's door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that.

Don't you dare tell me the sky is the limit when there are footsteps on the moon!

Everything here is eatable. I'm eatable, but that my children is called cannibalism and is frowned upon in most societies.

Taste the rainbow - EAT CRAYONS!?!

The road to success is always under construction.

Son, if you really want something in this life, you have to work for it. Now quiet! They're about to announce the lottery numbers.
