In May 2010, we had the amazing experience of the water flowing over the dry Asab Riverbed in Namibia. You can read our story about this experience in the right hand column of this page, titled THE ASAB RIVER.
We also experience a second event on that day. After leaving the river, we traveled towards Arbeid farm in Klein Karas, where we were going to visit friends. On the D607 road, the sky became very dark as a storm brought heavy rain, which is somewhat unusual for the area. Suddenly, a flood of rushing water came out of the desert and flowed under our vehicle. We saw this as confirmation of the promise God had given us early at the ASAB River.
For years we have tried to find the exact spot where this happened. Of course, having traveled this section of the road during the darkness of a storm, the environment looks very different in the sunshine whenever we return. However, our friends Johan and Berdine de Klerk recently, having recognized it from our photos. pinpointed the place with branches and a rusty tin on a pole. When we traveled the road again, in September 2015, we were able to find their beacon and re-discover this special place. .
