2007 was the year that I received God’s call on my life. He showed me what He wanted me to do for His kingdom with the time that I had here on earth. He gave me a dream and for the past seven years I’ve been pursuing the knowledge of God and His call for my life.
Part of my preparation was to attend Bible College. I started at CBC Heidelberg in 2011 and completed my second year in 2012. After graduating, God showed me that I was to stay in Heidelberg for further preparation time and to finish the work started in this lovely town.
I’m currently the youth leader of a local church and also run 4 home-groups throughout the week. We run a soup kitchen where we feed and minister to the kids. I find that the best way to minister is not by preaching but by demonstrating the love of God.
We’ve got big plans for this town and I believe God is going to do big things in little Heidelberg! We want to enlarge the soup kitchen to enable us to feed more kids and minister the Word to them in a way that they can receive it—mainly having projects, fun days, handing out children’s Bibles and just loving them! I’m also planning a youth conference for the young people in town and another one for just the guys. I’m on the committee of an anti-drug campaign that was started by some of the church leaders and people from the community. We aim to prevent substance abuse among the people in town and try to rehabilitate those already caught up in it. It’s amazing to see churches, businesses and schools come together under the name of Christ.
Soon I’m hoping to go to DR Congo to minister God’s love. My friend Raymond and I have taken many trips and outreaches all over South Africa, we hope to go into Africa for another trip.
I’m learning a lot from all of these projects and I’m thankful that God prepares me for the next step after every step I take. Soon I’ll be fulfilling my dream (If I haven’t started already) and I can Impact the world with this God that I serve. But above all I’m just happy that I’m getting to know God more and more and that I can enjoy this adventure with Him. Dankie Here (Afrikaans for - Thank you Lord).
