RRC Video

I came across this video on Youtube. This was shot when our pastors visited South Africa in February of 2009. I have no idea who the organization is that posted this video, but at least they give credit to Red Rocks Church at the end. Click Here to watch the video.

Documentary about Freedom Park

I found an excellent documentary about life in Freedom Park a squatter camp just outside of the town of Rustenburg, South Africa. (Rustenburg is where we lived when we were in South Africa and where will once again live when we return.) For some reason, the picture stops at about 44 minutes, but the sounds continues). Here is a review of the documentary.

Lincoln spent a lot of time in Freedom Park, going from shack to shack with the home health care givers. He visited AIDS patients, bringing them food and clean water from the tap in our kitchen. When we return to South Africa, Freedom Park will once again be a focus of our work.

(The movie talks about Rands , the currency used in South Africa. 1 US Dollar is approximately equal to 6-7 South Africa Rands.)

Freedom Park

Lincoln recently came across a good article about life in Freedom Park, an illegal squatter camp in South Africa. The article also has information about an AIDS Hospice called Tapologo. We have visited Tapologo with Dr. Neil, a local doctor who volunteers his time to work at AIDS clinics and at the Lighthouse Shelter.
