We have arrived safely in Syabuswa - it took a while to get connected to the internet - so apologies for all who were hoping for an earlier confirmation. We had a good journey to Heathrow, a good check-in, a good flight, and were met safely at the airport by Neil and Hilary Applegate. Then it took ages to get the hire cars but they are all very comfortable and shiny and new! We were held up by a traffic jam on a road from Jo'burg which helped make the journey from airport to Syabuswa about 6 hours long! We were warmly greeted by our hosts here and having eaten our first meal on South African soil we are all absolutely worn out and ready for a good night's sleep (the 11 hour flight was overnight but few of us slept).
Thank you all who have been holding us in prayer!
