Here is the message received from the Netherlands –

Good Friday to all my dear South African friends. Today, exactly one week ago; the Dutch farmer Peet van Es was killed in Barberton on his farm “Moseley Farm.” He was tortured for 5 hours before he died. His wife Arine Prins was tied down and was hearing his death screams all the time. I want to let you know; that we from Holland deeply sympathize with you and your country. Me, myself and family, lived for over 5 years in your beautiful South Africa. I totally understand what you go through every day, and all of you are therefore every day in our prayers. Fortunately, the Dutch Government is beginning to open its eyes to the suffering in your country. Passed Tuesday is the full coverage of the murder, printed in our nationwide newspaper (Algemeen Dagblad). What I want to say to you: YOU NEVER WALK ALONE because GOD LOVES YOU! Geseënde Paasfees vir jul almal en God Bless You All.
