I will be leaving tomorrow morning walking with the cross Thursday 22nd Sept 2016 from Table View to the Moreson farm where they having the Western Cape Mighty Men conference from the 23rd-25th Sept this year.
I will walk as far as Philadelphia (26km) on the N7 and sleep over. I did put word for a place to rest for the night but have not had any feedback but as the town’s name mean “brotherly love” I am sure when I get there somebody there will give me some brotherly love with a bed to sleep in and to rest for the night.
Friday morning I will walk the remained of the +- 20km to the Moreson farm 10km from Malmesbury . If I get there early will remain on the N7 at the entrance interceding until just before 6pm when the main opening service of the conference start.
I was asked to join in the opening ceremony to light a huge revival fire that will burn over the weekend. A torch that will be carried in a relay run starting on top of Table mountain by Bertie Cloete and a team of people to Moreson farm will light the fire
I am excited to walk the N7 over the next 2 days. Please pray for me and trust the Lord for many people to come to Jesus and many that will stop and be prayed for and all seeds sown to bear much fruit.
When I walk I pray most of the time and if you know anybody that needs prayer tell them to sms/whatsapp me on 081 7955040. i will check for msg from time to time. You welcome to phone me but on the highways i dont hear the phone ring as it is very noisy. If you are on the N7 during Thursday or Friday and you see me stop and say hello
There is suppose to be rain in the morning leaving here but in Jesus name I thank you Lord that you will carry me through this as it is for your glory.
Winnie will remain behind in the caravan in Tableview where we parked at the moment and I am trusting the Lord for a lift to the farm for her so that she can join me for the 9am service, If anybody is going that way contact us as we would appreciate a lift that way.
God is awesome and looking forward to a blessed weekend.
All the best to you and your family,
On the 3rd August 2016 i was led by the Holy Spirit to walk with the cross from Table View to N1 City and on the N1 and back praying and interceding for South Africa as it was the local elections taking place. As before at many different locations on the highways and byways i would stop and lift up the 4m cross and intercede where i am. During this walk i stopped at the off ramp to Century city on the N1. While getting up i had a encounter with a angel. In the video below i explain what happened. Blessings Johan

Our brother Rick Ridings of Succat Hallel (24/7 House of Prayer overlooking the Temple Mt.) had a prophetic Vision of a wave across Africa shaking witchcraft and idolatry and bringing increased harvest on the 10th November 2015
Based on this vision and other revelations, a group of leaders and intercessors will perform a prophetic act in Cape Town at Cape Point on the 11th of December 2015 from 12h00 to 14h00 South African time zone (UTC+02:00) led by Baruch Maayan, a South African Born Messianic leader now based in Israel.
After much prayer, revelation and understanding, we are also calling Leaders and Intercessors from EVERY NATION on the Continent of Africa to UNITE with us during this time to praise, worship and pray and to stand in the gap for your Nation (in your Country) at this pivotal moment. Please also read Isaiah 19. We will also be joined by Intercessors from Israel, Jerusalem.
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
