I try to listen to it every Saturday morning because I learn so much from that particular minister. the question yesterday was:"What is our daily bread?" His answer boils down to the following:" Our daily bread is whatever we need to be completely human, whatever we need to live."
    It can even be something like electricity . . . .Oct 30DeleteUndo deleteReport spamNot spam2 previous comments from Riette Roos, Noelle Clearwater
    Noelle Clearwater - Riette Roos I like that a lot. And in many parts of Africa, it is exactly that isn't it. Some friends of mine were involved in the Solar light project in Uganda. I believe you have it in South Africa as well, in Natal. I just found this organization. I see that it is world wide. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Electric_Light_Fund.

As the world changes, needs change and our "daily bread" change . .. . thanks for the link, Noelle Clearwater
