Cornerstone University -Jan 2017
2017 started with a bang. Suzile and I picked up the Cornerstone students early in January and had another incredible time in Mavhuza with them. Cornerstone University (Grand Rapids, USA), led by Professor Bonzo, has been coming for 5 years and we have been so blessed by this partnership. Their commitment and love for Mavhuza village is always so refreshing
Melkbos High School -Jan 2017
On the 25th of January we did our first camp for the year, with Melkbos Private School's matric class. We are proud of our relationship with the teachers at the school, God has truly given us favor in our relationship with the school. The camp was focused on team building and leadership training. We also included sessions on sexuality and goal setting.
A personal highlight, was watching them overcome their fears and stepping out, even when they doubted themselves.
A new family member
In the process of becoming a confident young follower of Jesus I also became a leader and had many opportunities to be a leader on camps where I also grew in love with camp ministry.
God called me to do a JAM last year while I was in my final year of high school and making decisions about university for 2017. Since I started with JAM in January I realised that God's love and passion for young people wants to be made evident and that He wants to use me to be part of that. I am looking forward to being part of a team that promotes the hope in our country through discipling young people in becoming Godly servant leaders.

Eversdal Primary School -Feb 2017
On the 10th-12th February we hosted the annual Eversdal Primary School's Character Building Camp. With the school focusing on Integrity as their character value for 2017. The theme for this years camp was "Wees Eg, Leef Reg" / "Be Real, Live Right." We had tons of fun, using animals to symbolise different character values and talking about how animals leave prints behind, so do we. Then we challenged them by asking them, what prints are you leaving behind? What can be seen about your character through the footprints you leave behind?We had many new leaders helping out on this camp, all of whom stepped up to the challenge and left a life changing footprint in those kids lives.
