We havenít been idle
Even though I wasnít able to compile any gifting
reports since the Zambesi Tour, (because of the
book) we havenít been sitting on our back sides.
The aim of the Zambesi Tour was to unlock the rain
for the areas south of that mighty river and that
has happened in a spectacular way.
In September and October we had absolutely unusual
quantities of rain, more than twice the normal
average. October is the beginning of the normal
rainy season here and normally you get some 56 mm in
a month. This October it was 111mm. In other parts
of the country it was even more in excess of the

Johannesburg, the main theme remains water gifting.
If you read my report of the Zambesi tour, youíll

license, which I now have.
This was combined with a visit to the Kwa Zulu Natal
South Coast and some water gifting along that coast
on a stretch of some 150 km. We saw lots of
dolphins, whales from very close and a myriad of

practical ďsurf launchĒ exam.
Weíre ready now to complete the envisaged ring of
orgonite around the Southern tip of the continent.
We did some gifting on the interior waterways around
Johannesburg as well, focussing on the Vaal river
and the Vaal Dam. The Vaal Dam is the immediate
water supply for Gauteng Province, the main
population and economic centre of South Africa with
Johannesburg and Pretoria as itís main cities. Itís
Now that all the conditions are met, I will go down
to the Western Cape with the boot in a few days to
start putting that bigger plan into action.
Needless to say that all these activities cost money
and that money has to come from somewhere. You can
