              This anthology has contributions from a group of people in the New Zealand Christian Writers' Guild Hauraki Branch. I became obsessed with the desire to understand how we all experience life's journey in our own way and made it my business to try to enthuse my fellow writers. A c...ollection of work as diverse as this can only accentuate the fact that we serve an AWESOME God. Unique as we are so unique is He. A very special thank you to our publisher Prop Geldenhuys who has helped drive this group to submit their work. To those who didn't get to this in time, please don't give up! A colour edition is available for those who can afford it and an eBook version for those who can't! Keep writing and keep investigating what lies within your heart. We all have stories to tell and families who will someday regret that they never heard them. L Boshoff

              This is a true story of the life of Iris Prosser, born in the UK, raised four children and now retired in New Zealand. A fourth son was born in New Zealand. Originally printed and prefaced by W. (Bill) Howard Thompson-Prosser who said This story begins with life in the Princess L...ouise home for girls in England during the Second World War. Being subject to bomb attacks and to shortage of food was not as devastating as a life with almost no hugs and being on the receiving end of constant bullying. The result is a spirit that is often trying to prove itself. A very competitive effort was put in during teenage years at a French college and in later life to such things as learning to play the piano well, or even to playing tennis and squash to a standard that finally Iris accepted as good enough. This is a competitive spirit that two of her sons inherited, and that saw them compete in the Olympic games at Lillehammer, Albertville and Barcelona. It is a driving force that refuses to accept second best. It is a life that determined Iris to give to her children the love she herself so longed to receive. Written with love by Bill.

              The Gables in Durban was the authors home for ten years. Being the playground for South Africa it was the best place to retire once one's working life ended. Durban's tropical weather was more pleasurable than polar Cape Town - the only other retirement city considered. The Espla...nade building faced the harbour with its massive 'container terminal' reputed to be the largest in the Southern hemisphere, in its day. We witnessed the construction and further development of the vehicle terminal building and its resultant increase of vehicles being exported and imported - departing/arriving Durban by road and rail traffic. We witnessed the transformation of the old the old railway 'Workshop' into a modern shopping center. The beach-front Marine Parade was also modernized during our stay in this Natal coastal resort city.

              This book by is about my fathers' South African Air Force service during World War Two 1939 - 1945.He married my mother, Mathia Martha Lotter just before the war broke out - and they had the first three of four children born during the war years. The fourth child, born in Luanshy...a, Northern Rhodesia, did not survive.It must have been very soon after his marriage that he joined the military, like his father Johannes Albertus and eldest brother Hendry Jacobus Geldenhuys. When he was born, he was burdened with my grandmother's family names - Abram Carl Frederick Preller Geldenhuys.Abram Carl Frederick Preller Geldenhuys was born Bothaville, Orange Free State, South Africa, 2 August 1916 and died Pretoria, Transvaal, SA, 13 February 1972 - aged 551/2 years.His parents were Johannes Albertus Geldenhuys and Anna Elizabeth Preller - who were grain farmers on Rustpan, the family farm in the Bothaville district, on the road to Kroonstad.He was the youngest of five children, and according to family tradition, was named after his maternal grandfather. His eldest brother was named after his paternal grandfather - Hendrik Jacobus Geldenhuys. His older sisters were named Anna Elizabeth (Bess), Lilla and Mienie.They were initially farmed schooled and finished their Schooling at Bothaville - where my father matriculated.My grandfather had fought against the British in the Anglo-Boer War. My father was born during the First World War - best known in South Africa as the war of Boer teen Boer en Broer teen Broer - Farmer against farmer and brother against brother. It will be recalled that Germany was very sympathetic to the South Africans during the Anglo-Boer War 1899 - 1902; thus a sizeable proportion of the population was very reluctant to take up arms to attack German South West Africa as required by the Allies. However, young ACFP was totally oblivion to the ramifications of the First World War.
