Come to Me , all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28


When a young pastor took a few days off this Christmas season to draw aside at the Retreat and Conference Center we run, these words of Jesus came to my mind so clearly. I realized how we as His laborers neglect to go to our Master and find rest at His Feet. I also count it a tremendous privilege to provide a place where co-workers can find space to draw aside and be in His presence.

About the author

We did pastoral work on the little island of Mauritius for four years but returned to South Africa in September 2014. Since December we are working on the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal where my husband is the director for Crusade for Christ (an indigenous mission) and I coordinate the ministry of Silver Oaks Retreat and Conference Center. We see ourselves called to equip the saints to do the works God has gifted them to do (Ephesians 4:12) Our main ministry is to Xhosa and Zulu folk and we feel honored to serve the Lord for this season in this place.
