South Africa blues

I arrived in Pretoria, South Africa, last evening around midnight after a 30 hour trip (18 hours on board a plane in the back row!). I arrived minus my luggage! The problem lay in Amsterdam when I had barely 20 minutes to get off one plane and board another. I'm due to preach tomorrow three times and all I have are my jeans and running shoes (I travel in comfort). Today I had to go and buy shoes, socks a pair of trousers and a shirt. [In case you're wondering, my mother taught me to pack my underwear in a carry on, just in case, or just in another case if you see what I mean). They say the suitcases will arrive Tuesday (but my hosts are doubtful).

I'll keep you posted as the week proceeds.

Blessings on the Lord's Day to you all
