my life, my passion, my joy

Cath & Rob’s New Year’s News – 2013

For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them (Eph 2:10).

We got engaged!

Last year was a very eventful year having begun a courtship with Robert. On the 8th of December, before sunrise, he took me to the roof of his flat above the 7th floor. He set up chairs and served me milo and muffins and then we watched the sunrise. Then Robert presented me with a card which said, “My dearest Catherine – WILL YOU MARRY ME – with all the love and affection in the world!” I said: “Yes!” Rob then got down on his knee and presented me with a beautiful ring that he designed. He put it on my finger and I loved it!

Our wedding

We will be having a morning wedding on 27th April 2013, 8am at St Paul’s Church in Rondebosch, Cape Town. There will be tea and muffins served afterwards. You are most welcome and can look at our website for more details If you are unable to see the website and would like to come to our wedding then please email me before the 14th February 2012 on the following email address

Our future

For now we are preparing for our wedding. Robert submitted his final PhD dissertation in Theology on his birthday earlier this month. I really admire how he worked a full time job as an architect and in the evening studied theology. He will continue working as an architect this year so that I can have my full sabbatical year and then we are praying into various ministry opportunities. We are exploring the possibility of joining DIGUNA and serving in their discipleship school in Kenya. We plan to fly to Kenya in the last week of June to meet with leaders and explore options there. Please pray with us as we wait on the Lord for His guidance and the work that He desires to do through us. My church has been very supportive of us during this time.

At present, my time of re-entry into South Africa has been good and we have had a wonderful Christmas with both our families. I have also had time to rest and we are now preparing Robert’s apartment where we will stay once we are married. I will also be continuing my studies with the South African Theological Seminary, as well as writing my second book. Late last year my first book, Toriana was successfully translated into German and was printed just before Christmas. Up to now 45 books have been sold. Once I start making a profit from these sales we plan to use those funds towards missions.

Thank you for your continued love, emails, financial support and all your prayers. Please also continue to pray for both of us during this time of marriage preparation.

God bless you!
Rob and Cath
