Bruce Retief

Several years ago, Cathy and I spent a couple of weeks in Cape Town, South Africa.  While there, we had the honor of sharing in ministry with St James Church, Kenilworth.  Frank Retief, then the pastor at St James, and his wife Beulah, were our hosts for a part of that time.  While with them, we got to meet their three kids, Bruce, Grant and Debby.

What a rich heritage of ministry in this special family!

This morning, I ran across a website for Bruce Retief who is now a composer and arranger of some extraordinary music.  This piece is called, “Tears.”

It was performed by Rouchelle Liedemann in a live concert in Cape Town.  The power of its message needs no explanation!  Enjoy and worship!

(Apologies to the family who have never seen this picture before,
but I bet their spouses and kids will love it!)
