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

Being very hot in Cape Town city at the moment i walk mainly towards late afternoon with the cross. i was undecided in which areas to walk tonight and told Winnie i am just going to walk on the M3 towards the city and go as the Holy Spirit leads me. As i passed the top end of Long street i felt led to walk up to Buitengracht street and turn down Wale street coming back up Long street. Long Street have a lot of restaurants, clubs and some very bad elements walking around and doing business in the area. Drugs seem to be easily available with drinking and partying being the norm there with ladies of the night doing there business as well.
When i got to Long Street i walked down on the pavement for about 1km. i was surprised how open the Muslim people when i greeted them in passing. A lot of people wanted to know why i am doing this which give me the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them.
A Muslim man approached me and ask if i am going to be crucified on the cross i am carrying. i told if it is so then as i am not worthy and they must crucify me upside down on the cross. i turned the cross upside down as shown in the picture which got a lot of attention with many people approaching and listening on the side as i shared the Gospel to this man.
i got to the top of Long Street +- 10pm that night and even as i walked the 2km back on the M3 to where we staying many people in passing hooted and saw me as i walk with the cross.
Thank you Jesus for touching many hearts as i walked with the cross tonight. All those that responded to the Gospel shared be with them and the seeds that was sown become fruitful. I thank you Jesus for answering all the prayed that i prayed for people during this time. Let your name be Glorified

After Winnie and i visited Red Harbour Church in Hope street Cape Town for a lovely time of fellowship and singing Carols in the afternoon on Sunday 6th December we headed off to Seapoint to walk with the cross. Winnie walked a while with me and as the sun set she headed back to the car as i continued to walk with the cross. The Lord send many people across my path as i walked with the cross to share the Gospel . We started at 7pm and finished 10pm that. Rejoicing in what the Lord has done as even at the last minute a lady stopped and needed to hear that Jesus Loves Her. Below is a video i made as Winnie and i walking praying for the people of Sea Point in Cape Town
After we settled the Lord led me to walk with the cross into the city Thursday afternoon on the M3. As i left walking i really felt a heaviness in my spirit and not many people was friendly on my way to the city. i walk down to the city coming back along Long Steet back onto the M3 out of the city. The Lord showed me that there is many stronghold over the city of Cape Town and that as i walk for the remainder of the time while we in Cape Town must focus on breaking down strongholds and pray that chains will be broken as many is in bondage in the city.
The Holy Spirit reminded of the song which is powerful to sing and to claim over the city of Cape Town as i walk with the cross
“There is Power in the name of Jesus
There is Power in the name of Jesus
There is Power in the name of Jesus
It breaks every chain
It breaks every chain
It breaks every chain”
i kept on walking with the cross until sunset staying mainly on the busy M3 main road with many cars passing. i made this video praying for Cape Town on the M3. Thank you Jesus for many seeds sown
