The beautiful feet of LOUIS DU PREEZ

his last run

It was with such emotion that we heard yesterday morning that Louis du Preez passed away at
about 2 am that morning. Sorrow, disbelief, speechless, shock, overwhelming, moving...these
are a few words coming to mind.

Louis du Preez completed his last run during the 2014 Comrades marathon on 1 June. He is
registered with the Magnolia Running Club and participated with runners from more than 40
clubs as part of the S4J group. The S4J is a group of runners that utilize their participation in the
Comrades marathon to raise funds in support of God's work to help the people of the Sudans
(Sudan and South Sudan). In this, Louis was one of the top 5 fundraisers out of the 108 athletes
that were part of the S4J group this year.

What remains now is Louis' wife Annelie and their children, Louis' legacy and a pair of running
shoes. Please pray for Annelie and their children. Many people prayed for Louis during the past
week that he was in ICU.

Louis did not only run for his own glory, but to help the people of the Sudans, in particular those
of Darfur. Here are some more info on the cause that Louis ran for. Page 1. Page 2.

The beautiful feet of LOUIS DU PREEZ

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him
from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the
mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, Everyone who believes in him
will not be put to shame.12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same
Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For everyone who calls on
the name of the Lord will be saved.

14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe
in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone
preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How
beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news! Romans 10: 9 to 15

Louis, through your beautiful feet, many others will hear the good news of Jesus in the Sudans.
Your legacy will remain long after you've gone on this eternal journey that every one of us will
follow. The question is, will our legacy also outlast us?
