Leeu- Gamka -June 2018
This year, going into outreach season, we as a group felt that the community of Leeu Gamka needed to be reminded that "There is more of God and His rule”. In Leeu Gamka, there is a great awareness of God, but very few have truly received the revelation that God is more relational that they think or have experienced through religion. He has come to give life and life abundantly, which is accessible through an intimate relationship with Jesus. We left with hearts full of thanksgiving for all that God had done. We invite you to join us as we keep the community of Leeu Gamka in our prayers.
Prince Albert -July 2018
The Prince Albert outreach was a week filled with overwhelming love, joy, kindness, community, gratefulness and personality: all in all, a week of abundant spiritual growth. It was a week during which I, at times, felt heartbroken due to encounters with people struggling to give their lives fully to God; nevertheless, it was a week filled with hope and light. Our team had the privilege of experiencing the unfailing love that many of the people from the North End residence continue to have for God, and we also were able to witness many people committing their lives to Jesus Christ. Our team served both young and old during the course of the week, by way of children’s ministry, house visits and personal communion with some North End residents. During our interactions and conversations, with all people, there was only one thing we aimed to accomplish – to love. That was the main purpose of the outreach: to share the unfailing love God has for everyone regardless of their situations or background, and in sharing that love, we were able to really get to know the people of Prince Albert personally, and forge lasting relationships. We came to serve and love – and I believe that’s what we accomplished, but I am left humbled by the love we were shown and the faith some people have in God, despite the circumstances they find themselves in. I most surely left a changed man and if God is willing I will definitely go to Prince Albert again.
Young Families Easter Break Away-March 2018
Over the Easter weekend, we had the privilege of setting up camp with a few young families from our local church, Valley, on Aswater farm in the Karoo. This truly was a long awaited dream come true. Watching these young families have fun, meditate on the true meaning of Easter and spend time in prayer together, was truly special. It reminded me that our Father God truly is a family man. He values the role of every family member, young and old, male and female…each unique and each part of His greater picture. I am grateful anew for the love of our Saviour that willingly laid His life down for us. I am grateful for the family that we are privileged to have in Him. I am grateful that He is the head of our greater household…that He is our Guide, our Rock, our Provider and Shield. I am thankful for the example I was able to witness of families who, though imperfect, strive to love and serve and lead like Him.

Transkei -July 2018
Time and time again the Transkei has ignited a freedom in me that cannot be eclipsed by any other location, experience or group of people. I find that every time I visit this incredible community, God uses Bambisana to reveal and illustrate a new aspect of His character. As I explore and wander about in this new understanding of who He is, I am set free to surrender more and more of myself to His greater plans. As a team we learnt the power of leaping at His whisper, and finding safety only and always in His presence. We continue to see God’s mighty hand in the Transkei, as the community increasingly moves in response to His call, and we cannot wait to see the astonishing impact that will come from this place.
Calitzdorp -July 2018
We have partnered with Stellenberg Congregation on outreaches to Calitzdorp for more than 10 years and each year God has enriched His vision for the community and has shown His intense pursuit to win the lives of so many. This year we got to encounter God's redeeming heart, how He yearns to have His children turn back to Him and restore all that was taken away. We spent a couple of evenings with the community’s young people, and we had a time of sharing God's desire to find our identity in Him. We also had a time of worship and fellowship with the old and young adults of Bergsig and felt the Holy Spirit cover everyone present with a banner of unity in Him.
Koue Bokkeveld Camp-March 2018
We as the JAM team had the privilege of hosting 45 grade 9 students for a weekend camp at Apostle Battery. We felt it extremely significant to display the actions of Christ and have a serving heart to all of the lives we connected with over the weekend. The kids were overwhelmed with excitement as we toured them around the mountain, allowing them to participate in the multiple activities which we offer our campers. After finding out that several of the kids had never been to the beach before, we felt obligated as leaders to adjust our schedule to provide them with the opportunity to have a couple of hours in the ocean. We closed out our Saturday evening with a time of worship, followed by an invitation for anyone who wanted prayer. I truly hope that every member of this camp walked away fully restored, with a sense of comfort in the presence of Christ.
Leader Mundial Africa -October 2017
JAM, in partnership with Metro Evangelical Services (MES), Walk With A Purpose (WWAP) and a few churches, presented a 3 day event on Apostle Battery during the July School holidays. 35 young people from all over the Western Cape joined for this event. The first day was spent on learning about Mission (the Why? and How? of Missions). The second and the third day were all about outreach where JAM facilitated outreaches to Khayelitsha, Belville, Hangberg etc. It was an incredible success and we were honoured to be part of teaching and mobilizing young people for impact!
