On March 17, Cru Youth ministered at Kuyasa Library in Khayelitsha. This would be the last time our volunteers would share God’s Word, worship together in song and have fun competitions with the children at Kuyasa. The pandemic’s repercussions slowed the economy making it difficult for some volunteers to make ends meet. Our family provided financial support to sustain some during these difficult times. Cru Youth volunteers have also received God’s blessing during this time. One received a new home for his family that was gifted to him by a friend! Another blessing received by the volunteers was from my friend Eugene.
Founder of a small consulting agency, Eugene mentored others to achieve their life goals and desired to provide his services for free to Cru Youth volunteers. Casta, Sonwabile, Akhona, Kelli, Phumlani and Zuks all enjoyed the coaching sessions. The men shared some of their dreams. One desires to become a soccer coach in a professional league. Another to establish an electrical engineering firm in his Eastern Cape homelands. Eugene provided them with online tools and challenged them to come up with business plans to move them closer to their goals. Eugene will complete his final session this Friday, please pray this training will be a blessing in their lives and ministries.
Continue to pray for Melanie and me as we host our campus ministry’s national meetings next month (Nov 9 -12) in Cape Town. New Covid-19 safety protocols will have to be put in place. Pray for us, as this will be our first face-to-face meeting since last year.
