    Trust you are enjoying your walk and that God is with you. Great service at PMC this evening, Ulinda preached well and the notices reminded me I want to make a donation. Didn't know how, so decided to visit the website, but there ain't a prompt. Will make an EFT to PMC with a note to Jeanette.
    Enjoy each day to the full.

    Hi, there is a website called 'backabuddy' which encourages folks to give to their friends and aquaintances who are doing things for charity. Please see if you can register Alan and Chummy on this site, the money then gets straight into the account of the charity.

  11. By Rachel on Jan 28, 2009

    Hi Rose. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll get hold of the hikers and look into it.

    Hi guys, you have done soooo well, thinking of you. Glad you haven't reached Natal yet as Steve is slave driving me as his PA and I can't get anywhere with advertising you. Next week, I will whip up a frenzy of interest (fingers crossed) at Mens Health magazine, perhaps some other mags, East Coast Radio, Morning Live TV, Highway Mail, Independent Newspapers about your site and your story and Phakamisa, hopefully when close to civilisation e.g. Durban!!!! reporters will start driving to you, especially for Phakas. Any other media I left out? Love Calxxxx

  20. By Jennifer Sugden on Apr 21, 2009

    Hi Alan and Chummy! Watching your progress with great interest. You are both fulfilling a dream of doing something special and positive for our underprivileged people, most of us only dream about and do nothing about! Well done and may you get all the support you deserve!

  21. By Yzelle Kotze on Apr 22, 2009

    Hey you guys!

    I'm still watching, according to Jaco the Wild Coast is the most beautiful place on earth! All the best and good luck with the tough terrain and swims ahead!


  22. By Willie on Apr 24, 2009

    Well done so far! I will be at the finish. Tell Jaco he can also book in with us in Kosi if he gets up here.

    We spotted the 2 of you today as we were holiday-ing at Shelley Beach. My husband greeted you. Great to have seen your friendliness and enthusiasm. Sadly we only saw 'who you were' once you had passed us!
    All God's blessings with your hike!

    Hi there,
    Hope you guys are being kept safe and sound in your walk by the Lord.To do what you're doing takes a lot of guts,patience and endurance and I dont have enough of those to persevere as you have, and thats why I respect what you will achieve and hope your goals regarding the Phakamisa initiative are attained.

    God bless for the journey
