97814316034110Ek droom van ’n droom is Elsje Neethling Blair se verhaal van haar 20 jaar lange saamleef met kanker. Saam met Maretha Maartens vertel sy van die seer en die onsekerheid, maar ook die geloof en die blyke van God se genade en deel agt bladsye volkleurfoto’s uit haar persoonlike album. Bydraes deur geliefdes, onder andere Olimpiese gouemedaljewenner boetie Ryk Neethling en kleinsus Jean-Marié, wys hoe die stryd teen kanker elkeen in ’n gesin vir altyd verander. (pdfLees meer)

theTarget

The Target takes snippets and highlighted events from the Howe family's lives. Following a time line, it illustrates the challenges, trials and tragedies they faced, including the death of their two sons. This book gives a commentary of how the earthly and heavenly realms affect each other.Peter however, weaves Christian fiction into the different aspects of his own true personal journey.

Their faith developed and grew throughout all the tragedies they experienced, and blossomed into the life they now live serving God and ministering to others.
