Special thanks to all who helped

2017-03-09 06:01

IN the aftermath of our recent hiking ordeal, we want to express our sincere appreciation to the South Coast community who railed to rescue us.

A special thank you to the different rescue units from as far as Ballito, who pulled together and searched tirelessly for 32 hours, despite the unfriendly weather conditions, to rescue us.

It was more than a gallant effort across language and cultural boundaries. We saw the love and care among people we did not even know, in the God we serve and also in the people of this beautiful country.

Having said that, we want to thank the NSRI Port Edward and Shelly Beach, SAPS Port Edward, Search and Rescue Ballito, Ezemvelo KZN conservationists, Umtavuna honourary officers, MedEvac Ambulance Services, local farmers, Port Edward Rate Payers and especially, Deon Riley.

We also want to thank those who prayed for our safe return and those who supported our loved ones while we were missing. In the end, the glory belongs to the Almighty God, who kept his mighty hand of protection upon us during our 32-hour ordeal. So much more could have gone wrong but did not, because he kept us safe from any harm. Praise his wonderful name.
