Welcome to the missionary South Africa connection - the blog connection. I would like to introduce you to one of the first families to be featured here, but first a little about South Africa itself.
You can never forget where the country is, of course - the name says it all. The country is famous for its gold, platinum and other minerals, but there's also agriculture including corn, wheat, sugarcane and fruits and vegetables. Other industries include metalwork and machinery, including automobile assembly. The stock exchange is one of the world's 10 largest.
Over 48 million people live in the country, but sadly the
population is dropping due to the AIDs virus. Life expectancy is only
49 years. There are a number of languages that are widely spoken in
South Africa, including IsiZulu, IsiXhosa, and Afrikaans.
Now let's take a look at some of our blogs...
Our first missionary South Africa blog currently comes from the town of Macassar. Also one of the oldest blogs featured here, it was started in 2004.

Six years later, another blog was started - Nunleys in Africa! The tagline of their blog is training and discipling young Africans to become Godly servant leaders who can impact their communities for Christ.
Next, you'll want to visit LERATO (love) for another missionary South Africa blog. The Smiths are working primarily to help children at risk in South Africa.
