Every seven years we are encouraged to take a sabbatical of 3 months. I took the first month of my 2015 sabbatical in October 2014 and used the month to write my thesis for my Master of Science in Medicine (Ethics and Health Law). That was submitted and marked and I was awarded a distinction, which surprised me as much as everyone else. I am extremely thankful to our LORD and to my family for strength, support and encouragement received. My graduation was on July 1st, the first day of my second month of sabbatical. This month will be far more relaxing!
Below is a recent pic of all our family (except for Andrew in Zanzibar, who couldn't make the family gathering at Ballito).
