Three of us drove up from Cape Town; Taryn, the Co-ordinator of Africa Christian Action, missionary intern, Ryno and I drove 5,000km to and around Mpumalanga and back. Michael and Renee drove up from KwaZulu/Natal for our intensive Mission to Mpumalanga.
Through Flooded Rivers
From the beginning, this Mission was complicated by unprecedentedly intense torrential rain, which swelled the rivers to bursting their banks and flooded large areas. Several of the key bridges we had to cross were rendered impassable by the swollen and fast-flowing rivers. Michael commented that not even on his Africa Overland Missions to Sudan, had he faced such obstacles in river crossing as our team had to deal with on this Mission to Mpumalanga!
