Today a dear elderly lady from church took Miriam and I to the Walter Sisulu national Botanical Garden. Winsome is in her 80's and she has been a missionary to Congo in her younger days and now she has been a homework teacher at Lambano for almost 5 years. She invited Miriam and I to her house for lunch with her friend Vera. It was a lovely time! Then we drove to the Gardens. It was a good drive away. Drove through the middle of Joburg...it was the first time I've been in the that part of the city. I noticed there was no white people walking around the streets downtown. Winsome and Vera where excellent tour guides and it was very interesting.
When we got to the Gardens we walked down to the Witpoortjie Waterfall. It wasn't sunny out but it was quite warm. We had a little picnic of cake and then walked on some of the trails around the Garden. It was such a nice relaxing time.
Winsome is quite a sweet, dear lady. She has many story and sometimes barely stops to take a breath. She is always talking about God and how good He is and how everything is in His timing...He is are strength. I have much to learn from this wise godly woman and I thank God for her heart and service.
