Holiday travels continue

16 May 2011

We continue on our holiday travels, and are now in Port Elizabeth. This is the first time I have had decent internet access since we left home. Val’s computer seems more sensitive, and she has been able to connect more often. We’ve posted some of our photos on our family blog and on Facebook.

David and Mary MacGregor, Port Elizabeth, 14 May 2011

When we arrived on Saturday we went to see David and Mary MacGregor, whom we had not seen for many years, though I have followed David’s blog. David was Dean of the the Anglican Cathedral in  Pretoria in the early 1980s, and we worked quite a lot with him then. Now he’s retired and living next to St Saviour’s Church in Walmer, and God has told him to visit the law ministers in the parish.

On Sunday we went to the Divine Liturgy at the Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Parsons Hill, and were invited to lunch by a couple in the parish, Dimitri and Gail Marguerite Paizis, and found we had not exhausted all topics of conversation, so we went to their home for coffee after lunch and spent the whole afternoon chatting, and swapping sorties about church and mission and the like. Their priest, Father George, is leaving soon, but the seemed to be quite a big parish and should have enough people who could be priests and deacons and have other ministries.

It was a very busy but good weekend, meeting friends old and new. Now we move on to Stutterheim, and head homewards.
