Dennis and Jackie Beeselaar left their beloved Cape in 2006 to come and serve the Lord at RUC and we have been blessed by their ministry for thirteen years. They have both poured their hearts into the lives of many people at RUC and they are loved by many. When Dennis became ill with cancer towards the end of 2011 many of the congregation prayed for him and the Lord answered the prayers and spared him to serve RUC for another eight years.
Dennis’ pastoral heart is evidenced in his care for the ‘flock’ (as he calls them) and he will be missed by many of the ‘skaapies’. It has been my privilege to work alongside Dennis for all of the time he has been at RUC and we have become good friends. I will miss his sense of humour, laughter, care and concern for others.
Dennis as you ‘retire’ from full time pastoral ministry the congregation of RUC wish you God’s blessing and guidance as you continue to serve him in different areas in the Cape. Enjoy being closer to your children and the natural beauty of the Cape. May you and Jackie have some wonderful, quieter years together.
Thank you for the way you have served God and RUC!
God bless you both.
