Cape Town, Western Cape
Immizamo Yethu Township "IY"
This is the first township JAM worked in. In fact, before JAM was in existence, we presented holiday camps for kids from IY on Apostle Battery. IY is now home to thousands of people from other African countries, which gives us an amazing opportunity to reach the nations. JAM’s involvement in IY has taken on various shapes and sizes. JAM currently has two focus areas - S.C.M and Donts'eyakhe.
Silikamva High School Student Christian Movement (S.C.M)
Part of our team goes to this event that takes place every Thursday after school. Our team gets to be “older” brothers and sisters to these passionate young believers. Building relationships and discipling them has been our main emphasis.
Donts'eyakhe is located at the highest point of the township and very secluded from the main roads. Donts’eyakhe , unlike the rest of IY, have not enjoyed the privileges that NGO’s and churches bring. We have built amazing relationship with people through house visits and have been able to share the Gospel and serve through service projects etc.
Gap & Vybe Youth Group (Valley Church)
For two years now, JAM has been helping out with a youth group, GAP/VYBE ages 12-18, from the local church(Valley), we attend here in Hout Bay. The group is divided into two groups and is lead by two of the church's leaders. As JAM we go and help them with the kids however we can. "Youth night" is every Wednesday evenings and the program consists of games, a lesson/teaching and worship. In addition to Wednesday night youth group, JAM has more recently started Mentorship Groups, where JAM Team members spend time with a small group of Valley’s youth, mentoring and guiding them in the ways of Christ. The children have beautiful hearts for the Lord and it is a privilege to work alongside Valley Church in raising these students up in becoming godly men and women with a heart for the Lord.
Pray for Cape Town...
- Pray for the JAM's weekly visits to IY including house visits, Bible study and kids ministry.
- Pray for the Gap & Vybe youth group students: that they will grow in the Lord and walk in a way that is reflective of Christ Jesus.
