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.

We announced our vision for Kwelanga House and a tutoring centre in December. Remember? Since then, a bigger, Christian, non-profit organization, saw our vision and invited us to come under their umbrella.

All praise to God for providing this awesome new ride. This 1989 VW Microbus seats 8 and has plenty of room for stuff and people and people’s stuff. A friend saw it with a For Sale sign in the window. Two weeks later, it is ours. God is good.
Thanks to our friends Annie and Lucas and all of you special T-shirt wearin’ people, nearly $500 was raised for Kwelanga House! Thank you all so much! We love seeing pics of the t-shirts, keep them coming! Thank you all!
It’s Superbowl Sunday. You’re probably watching commercials. South Africa recently released this commercial which speaks to the heart of why we want to open a tutoring center. It speaks to the heart, really. It’s a commercial for alcohol, of course. The best ones always are.
So let hope rise and darkness tremble in your holy light.*
Students 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.
