Indaba – “Xhosa and Zulu word meaning discussion or conference.”
National SLMSA Meetings (9 – 12 Nov) in Cape Town, National Leadership Team Meetings (16 – 20 Nov) in Pretoria and Western Cape Regional Team Meetings (24 – 25 Nov) in Cape Town dominated my November work schedule. As a leader in this mission’s group, ministry heads came together and had an indaba. We prayed, discussed, and came to agreements.
Campus Crusade for Christ – South Africa evaluated our resilience as a faith-based organization. Like many corporate and church entities, our year end discussions revolved around the pandemic’s effects on our movements and what must we do to move forward: What do we start? What do we stop? What do we “double down” on?
Now that the indabas concluded, I will focus my efforts to developing South African staff to now fill leadership positions. I will shut down our Western Cape regional store which sold CCCSA materials. Our CCCSA ministry will now produce more social media content to expand our outreach on all our social media platforms. I am excited about this upcoming year of ministry please pray our ministry will bring more people to relationship with Jesus Christ.
Although I am excited for the new year, my son is ecstatic for 2021. Leon Mack Best will be a senior. I will have a 12th grader. In South Africa they call it the matric year of high school. Mack will represent his school’s leadership as a prefect, his hostel as the head boy and rugby team on the field with the number 4 jersey. We thank God that Mack has done so well in South Africa.
