During the month of July 2001 Carole Tomkinson (pilgrim on walk 14 with Heidi) and her husband Rob (pilgrim on walk 13 with Bruce) phoned Heidi and said that their daughter Joanna Lourens and son in law Dirk were looking for a church to attend. |
Dirk and Jo met up with Bruce and Heidi at their local church and started to attend their young adult's bible study group.
We put in motion the formation of an incorporated section 21 non profit company which is registered in South Africa and the requirements for this company was a board of 7 Christian people.
The company was finally registered on 18 December 2001 and we were privileged that Geoff permitted us to use the name Hamba Ekukanyeni - Walk in The Light Ministries.
On the 29 December 2001 Dirk and Joanna Lourens (Board members of Walk In The Light) had been visiting with us and committed themselves to becoming an integral part of the mission. They identified a site on the property to build a house for themselves so that mission work could be shared between all of us.
The team was now coming together.
On the evening of the 29 December 2001 we received confirmation of our journey in a book called My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers.
The daily reading for that day entitled "Deserter or Disciple" said "When God by His Spirit through His Word gives you a clear vision of His Will, you must 'walk in the light' of that vision."-1 John 1:7.
