THE BIG ASK NEWS!

Our new friend Sara inspired us to ASK BIG! So here it is!

OPERATION HOPE: As we have sought God’s heart, we find it more vast and more expansive than we ever dreamed. The depth of His love of us is without equal and without limit. He has big plans for His people and we are thrilled to be a part of it. We believe He has placed us here in Cape Town, the Mother City, to be a part of Him birthing something new into the earth. He is always doing a new thing.

 

WHO: We believe the first nation people of southern Africa, the Khoisan, to be a key component in God’s new thing. (Some believe they are the first nation people of the whole earth.) They are gate-keepers to the land, to the soil. As God draws us close to show us who we really are, we find that He is telling us we are both fully physical, people formed from the dust, and fully spiritual, made in the image and likeness of God. These gate keepers have a deeply spiritual way about them. Continue reading THE BIG ASK NEWS!

I just looked at the annual report from our website. I can see our most popular posts, most comments, and most searched words. You search for some strange things, people.

Announcing…Kwelanga House

So let hope rise and darkness tremble in your holy light.*

Screen Shot 2014-02-24 at 8.16.57 PMStudents in Masi face horrific overwhelming obstacles in their community: HIV/AIDS, crime, poverty, rape and substance abuse. Some have no running water, some share a one room shack with an entire family, including one bed.

They live with  injustice. It means they must overcome a great deal in order to learn. There are students with untapped potential in Masi. It’s about inspiring. It’s about not being intimidated by obstacles. It’s about fighting back. Their injustice is our injustice.

We are beyond excited to announce our vision for Kwelanga House, our non-profit organization in Masiphumelele. Kwelanga House is an after school tutoring/guidance house for the community. Continue reading Announcing…Kwelanga House
