The international doors open

I am normally circumspect when it comes to statements such as “living by faith” or “God will provide”. But as I type this, I find myself in the middle of an unfolding miracle. You may or may not believe it, and I am still trying to come to grips with it myself. It all started on Monday.

Monday night, 7.30pm, our get-to-Spain graph looked looked like this:

My flight to Cape Town having been booked for Tuesday, Monday night was spent deliberating with Tam on the pros and cons of purchasing a plane ticket to Spain, with no money in the bank account. (Incidentally, KZN residents can only get a Schengan visa in Cape Town – not Pretoria.)

Us being the praying kind, I prayed. Feeling a strange sense of peace, and aided by the symptom of partly-stupid-and-mostly-gung-ho, I booked the plane ticket. The only person who knew I’d done it was Tam, and she promptly went to sleep (probably as a coping mechanism).

Four hours later, having not told a soul, the graph suddenly looked like this:

A couple of anonymous donations made in the space of 4 hours. I have no clue where those donations have come from (if it was you, a very heartfelt and large Thank You!). I have come to the realisation that it’s not actually important. We’re taking it as a sign. The Future Music Forum beckons, and with it, a new future for the RCB.

P.S. For those still following our progress, we still have a way to go, as you’ll see in the graph below.
