Multiple times a week I get to meet with a group of women from Ocean View for prayer and intercession. Oh how I love these women! Continue reading
Meet Johan. His heart is as big as he is. And he’s one very tall White man. This South African is the avenger of Ocean View. I have never met someone with more of a passion for social justice and the fire to get things done. These containers are here in large part to his tenacity. Continue reading

Guess what? Our entire family will be in the good ol’ USofA for the entire month of July and August. In just 11 days, we went from having enough money for one plane ticket to buying all 7! I’d say that’s a size-able miracle!
Check it out!
If you’d like to meet up or share a cuppa while we are in town, please let us know. We would love to share with you!
Thank you so much to all who have given! Anything given above and beyond will go toward our traveling and visa expenses. As you know, boys like to eat. Can’t wait to see you!
Jackson and his YWAM outreach team have been busy in Arua, Uganda. So far, so good! Thank you all for your prayer!

Yes, how about a trip to Africa? Yes, I know we are in Africa, but this is a different part of Africa. If you haven’t heard, Jackson has joined the staff of YWAM Muizenberg. He’s now staffing a DTS which means he will be leading an outreach team of his own. It’s just been announced that he and his co-leader Elisabeth will be spending 10 weeks in Uganda and South Sudan!

With flour on my hands and down the front of my shirt, I open the door wondering, “Who shows up here the day before Christmas and I hope this won’t take long.” Continue reading
The main reason I wanted to do a YWAM DTS (Discipleship Training School) was to find my purpose and calling. I mean, I am fresh out of high school, I live in South Africa and I have not even applied to a single college. You have no idea how many times I have been asked, “What are you doing next?” I was stressed out from the pressure because dude, I really like surfing.* Continue reading
