Windy Stilbaai. That was my first impression, when we arrived at Ellenrust Campsite early Friday morning to set up stall for the Freedom Road Bikers Rally. I was glad we decided to come with the caravan and not our tent. But as unwelcome as the weather, so friendly and welcoming was the people we met. Not too long and we had someone helping us with the caravan’s tent and everyone greeted and welcomed us warmly. Pretty soon, we felt like
Spreading the gospel is our passion, and using T-shirts, Hoodies and Scatter Cushions we are getting the Word of God out there. But behind the scenes this means admin and diligent people getting the work done. Which is why I am so thankful that God has sent us Emma Umima Elstadt to help in the In the Gap Office. She shares a bit of her story with us: How do you pronounce your second name and do you know it’s meaning? My second name is Umima, and I know, it’s quite different. Quite special.

The Power of Good News ~ By Riaan Viljoen A year ago I went on Outreach to Zambia with a team from my church. One day we went to do evangelism on the streets. We went out excited and tried to talk to a lot of people we saw in the market place. However, although the people seemed polite, there was no real openness to the gospel.

Great food stalls for dad, craft market for mom and crazy rides and fun activities for the kids. I love watching families come for the day, pushing the pram, talking and having fun. And my favourite Family Festival would have to be the Strawberry Festival, yearly at the Redberry Farm in George. Great activities for the family from picking your own strawberries to getting lost in a maze.
How does Screenprinting work? About two years ago, when my husband and I started this business, Screenprinting was a foreign idea to me. I looked at all the equipment that we brought home and listened to the processes with a blank look and wondered how I would ever be able to master this technique in our business. Now a year later I am amazed at what I’ve learned along the way and very grateful to a lot of people and resources that have helped get us this far… With that in mind I would like to share with you the basics of our screen printing process and maybe point you to some resources that have helped me get started! 1. Get an idea…. My husband had a dream about printing Christian T-shirts and now also get most of […]
