Christmas at Genadendal

August 21, 2015

Genadendal is the oldest mission station in South Africa.  My husband did his Phd about a missionary who worked at Genadendal in the 1800’s.  Because of this, we spent many vacations at Genadendal.  While he was working in the archives, I made quite lot of paintings as you can see under the topic of “mission stations” on my blog.

One year we visited their church on Christmas eve. They have a tradition of giving candles to everyone during the service, creating a beautiful atmosphere.
