Dignity is everywhere

Recently we have been invited to come speak and do awareness campaigns is many different settings. In churches, conferences, schools, communities and child care centres. It’s been a blast because we have an excellent team.

Now we have been offered to go into All the public schools …

October we are training border officials in all the clusters of Mpumalanga…

We need some more speakers so another three ( so far, but the number is growing ) people will be getting trained beginning of September.

We have three calls for proposals waiting to be filled in and send of to the aids foundation and the EU and UN …

Lots of breakthroughs… the harvest is big … the workers are few.

In general, we need you !

And a vehicle … lol

Back in business 

First of all thank you all so much for the kind words and encouragements. They mean a lot to me. 

It s been a good time of mourning and celebrating Tienas life. She was and still is an inspiration for all of us. We find ourselves hugging longer and talking to more people intentionally. 

In the middle of this quite time ministry wise, God sent is little presents to keep our faith growing, even in the quite times. I would get messages from girls that we had met on the street, some even years ago. Saying that they were doing well and that they had left the life on the streets since the prayer, returned home and found a job…. He is faithful, all the time. I love these encouragements. Like kisses from heaven. 

Now it’s back to business. We are starting another camp on the 14 th of September till the 24th. A girl from our last camp is so enthousiastic about her life change, that she wants to work with dignity. She identified 15 girls for us and will be staying with them at breakthrough the ten days of the camp. She will also shadow the working on fire leader to learn from her. I am so proud of her. She is a real leader and enjoys serving. 

A busy time ahead, but only for a while …. 

Much love
