uThando leNkosi
by Greg Owens on September 30th, 2010

Saturday the 25th of September 2010 saw a group of 15 volunteers with World for Christ Ministries descend upon uThando leNkosi – Place of Safety in Diep River, Cape Town, for our first myCapeTown event, to show our support for the work that they are doing to provide short-term places of safety and emergency care to children at risk.  The weather could not have been better considering that it had been a solid week of rain! We were totally taken aback by the welcome and hospitality from the children and their house parents. The house parents, Errol & Michelle Muller, are amazing people with such testimonies of God’s faithfulness and provision.  They are real role models for the children.

After spending some quality time with the kids (painting faces, balloon tricks, and of course an amazing soccer game) the team split into groups tackling equally important tasks. Without a hesitation the team got to work.  These tasks included: painting the exterior boundary wall, cleaning the garden, digging a vegetable patch and varnishing the exterior window frames.

The team did really well considering the time that they had to complete the tasks.  With ages spanning from 15 years to 52 years, there was an incredible sense of “team” and unity: a testimony of how the young and old can work together, encourage each other, and impact peoples lives for the Kingdom.

Everyone who came along on Saturday thoroughly enjoyed themselves and felt blessed to be a part of the great work God is doing in children’s lives in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.   Even though there are many needs that still need to met, when we take ownership of our community, put into practice the commands of Jesus to help those in need, and each one do their part, then the only result is for our city to be transformed.  We hope that you will join us next month as we continue to share God’s love throughout Cape Town.

We’ll be back to uThando leNkosi for sure.
