Don`t we all need to be reminded, which kind of foundation is able to hold and support our lives, in the midst of sunshine or stormes, easy or hard times. At our women`s conference last month, we came together to honor the women around us, to worship God, to encourage and love each other.

 Many partners helped us to prepare and drape our hall, to make scarves and bags as presents, to get snacks and a meal for everyone and get everything set up. Well of Salva...

Somewhere in the beginning of this blog, there is an entry that deals with the question "Who am I?" and I kind of feel I have reached a diffrent layer of that same onion ;) A couple weeks ago, I was visited by my younger brother and his fabulous fiancè all the way from Germany. I got to show them a glimpse of my life, as well as travel through the vast beauty of this country. We stayed at some logdes, met other German or Dutch travellers and lived a bit of...

Few battles are won in one day. The walls of Jericho fell after 7 days of circling the city in obedience to God, meanwhile God had already accomplished the victory.

The past weeks, I have been thinking a lot about prayer circles, obedience and unseen victories, hidden behind battles that still need to be fought.

When I look at my community, which is filled with amazing people, big families, lots of very special kids, granny`s who are trying their hardest and...

"Being there" seems to become more and more part of my job. Sometimes that means I am offering a shoulder for someone to cry on or a hug for a child, in whose family and culture physical touch is not the most common way of presenting "safety, belonging or affection". Other times, I am the ear listening to stories of pain and loss or I am the hand to squeeze to make the feeling of being alone in distress go away. Some evenings I am the counterpart on faceboo...

Within the first months of my ministry I did a survey with the teenagers, who are part of our afterschool program "Ithuteng". I asked lots of questions about what they are missing and how we can help, empower and encourage them. Many of them mentioned the wish to go on a camp. At that stage, I had no idea how I could help with that, just growing into all the challenges ahead of me. But I kept it in the back of my mind. Months later, I heard from a friend ab...

"Our God is in the heavens. He does all that he pleases." Psalm 115,3

My life is messy, chaotic and so much less forseeable than I would chose for it to be. I live in a home, where people come, stay for a season and move on.  LIV Lanseria is not known for its great communication, so there is always a lot of spontaneous things going on. Weeks fly by, each day filled with new people, new plans, new visions, new steps; there is always something different than...

Last saturday, I had the priviledge to take 31 of our teens to the GOG Lifestyle Park in Lanseria. Most of them have never been to such a place full of fun activities. There were different pools, blow-up slides, trampolines, an obstacle course, pedal go carts and more.

We had so much fun together. These precious teens are full of energy, eager to learn new things, try their best, challenge themselves and take some pretty selfies. My favourite part was racin...

Today is sunday - my day off, on which I love to go to church and just be me, mingling with my church community. But because my church was celebrating its 13th birthday today with water slides, my friend Megan and I agreed to take some of our Foster Kids with us, so they could get out for some extra fun.

Church was great, encouraging, refreshing, bold and warm - as in a loving atmosphere. I love this church: "Heron Bridge Community Church" in their love, div...

I haven`t shared as much as I would have liked over the last 6 weeks; it has been busy. But let me just tell you about today.

It was one of those days where there is too much to do and then things change unexpectedly (which I am not a big fan of in any case), other things don`t work out and behind every corner there is a distraction keeping you from finishing hat you are working on. On top of that, I had an argument with a friend which robbed the last bit o...

Being a woman can mean amazing things, but it is not easy. In a world where womens' rights are still limited and our voices are still hushed, it is our responsibility to live out womanhood in a strong and godly way. So we won`t be definded by injustice, insecurity and lies; but by love, strength, joy, faith, hope,...

After our Sparkle Event with the older girls, we organised "Glow" for our younger teens and tweens from our foster programm and the local commu...
