As we got turned down but 3 different places in Houtbay we prayed and the Holy Spirit showed us that He is blocking us from going to Hout Bay and KKNK festival. We have to continue where we stopped in Saldhana and continue from Velddrif
Winnie is on her way back from Durban and we will still be in Cape Town, preparing to take the cross to the KKNK festival in Oudtshoorn to walk around there during the time in Easter to do gospel outreach.
Instead of going up the West Coast to continue where we left off we will be on the other side of the Western Cape working our way back to the West Coast after the KKNK festival.
As we have less than 2 weeks left before we leave i am feeling led to goto Hout Bay or Camps Bay and do walking with the cross there during this time. We trusting the Lord for place to park and stay in our caravan safely in the area or a place to stay during this time.
During the time we in that area i feel led to walk,
- In Hout Bay all main roads
- Hout Bay via Chapmans peak to Noord Hoek and back
- Hout Bay to Camps Bay and Back
- Hout Bay to Constantia and back
- Pray in all areas and share the Gospel as the Holy Spirit leads us

i was led to walk with the cross from beginning Seapoint to Camps starting @ Three Anchor Bay along Main road to Camps Bay coming back again via Beach Road which is about a 16km walk. The day was lovely but very hot. It was a blessing a i walk to pray for the people of Seapoint as i walk. a few stopped and spoke to me but many seeds was sown as i walked. Coming into Bantry bay the Holy Spirit led me to walk down Saunders lane which was off the main route i planned. Not sure why i had to walk down there but as it is my lovely wife Winnie’s maiden name i interceded for her family as i walked do the lane. i rather be obedient to sacrifice as God knows what and where i need to go.
Back on the main road i stopped to speak to some construction workers. The one man Emmanuel wanted to hold the cross and i could see that God was touching him in a very special way while holding the cross. The road between Bantry bay is fairly narrow and people could not stop easily but as the cross is seen many seed are sown as i walk. At one time a car passed me to close and his mirror got my arm but Praise God it was no damaged. i do feel he did it intentionally as at that place there was enough space for him to pass. Never the less that gave me a opportunity as he continued to drive to pray for him and his family. A lot of bicycles ride on that road in the same space as where i walk and me with the cross is not much difference as i keep to the left all the time close to the side of the road.
As i approached Camps-bay i took some time to sit down and rest and pray at the same time admiring the view from Maidens cove. Close by they were making a movie and as i left one of the medics that work there asked me about the cross. i sat down with him for a while sharing the Gospel with him and he told me it is a advert they making for a company oversees for yogurt. He blessed me with cold water and some fruit as i left him.
i walked to Camps bay, had a rest and started walking back. i was fairly tired by then as the heat was getting to me but just asked Jesus to lift me up and continued to walk. Passing Clifton beach a elderly couple stopped and asked for a photo of me and the cross. We stated talking and they from Switzerland on holiday and flying back on Friday. They said in South Africa we need more Christians to go out and share the gospel like i do as the state of the country is not good. They also said that in Switzerland on the other hand people don’t need there as they have everything as money is in abundance there. They were both Christian and the love of Jesus was very evident in them as they talked. We walked together for a while and before we parted i prayed for them and Switzerland. They also prayed in Swiss which i could not understand but it was a blessing to part with them that way. i shared with them that if it is God’s will next year Winnie and i want to go walk with the cross in Europe for a few months soon
Got back to the car just after 18h00 very tired, with back hurting as it was not a easy walk but rejoicing as Jesus touched so many that day. Even as i was loading the cross into the car a 80 year old lady came passed and she being a catholic experience the love of God with the cross as i spoke to her
Thank you Jesus for keeping me and giving me the strength to walk with the cross. i thank you Lord Jesus that all the people i prayed for and spoke to will walk with you and that all the seeds sown during this time will produced much fruit. Amen
