14 Friends visit from Botswana

On October 28th, 2005, 14 friends from Botswana came to visit me in Johannesburg. It was a fantastic time which we had been looking forward to for weeks and days. The guys who were there are: Moshie Ratsebe, Tebogo Pinaemang, Thebe Tumagole, Molemosi Crax Nkarabang, Laona Segaetsho, Thato Kubu & Sean (who is only but a small boy). The ladies who were there were Esther Garechaba, Kealeboga Dambuza, K. Kelesitse, Marea Marakgakgoro, Neo Marakakgoro, Tshepiso, Gaone, Kenanao Pinaemang. We were even joined by Legakwa Marakakgoro & her room mate Rachel, both of whom are undergraduates at Wits University, in central Johannesburg. Above is a group picture with most guys who came Saturday night for the braai.
At the braai during the Batswana friend's vist. Greg Tait and Peter Brooks were there! Peter Brooks and his family were on their way from Brighton, UK where they had been for the past 18 years or so to Australia. Peter Brooks has been the senior pastor at Church of Christ the King (CCK) for the past 8 years or so. God has called him to Australia from a church of about a thousand to lead a church of about fifty and to oversee apostolic work in the AutraliAsia region. He has been my pastor for the past two years in Brighton & it was such a joy to meet him yet again in South Africa.
