Twilight Shelter

Twilight Shelter

I am continuing to serve as the interim chairperson for Twilight shelter, and thanks to our executive director and team, things are slowly beginning to take shape.

As I mentioned in my previous letter, Twilight shelter had suffered mismanagement, theft and various challenges that were threatening to shut it down. But slowly we are beginning to get all the structures, governances and programs in order.

We will be relaunching Twilight as a transitional program for homeless young adults, and no longer for children. With an aim of being a transitional home that can provide skills development and preparation for job opportunities and not just being an overnight shelter.

Prayer time together at Twilight Shelter

As you know this is easier said than done, so we will need all the prayer and help we can get. However I am working with a very capable team, and up to now, things have gone well. Please keep us in your prayers, as the next 12 months will be very critical to the healthy relaunch of Twilight.

3 Kotze Shelter

Our work at 3 Kotze has also been going well, with a growing bible study and a very eager group of residents at the shelter. We are currently meeting on Wednesday night for prayer, encouragement and discussions around the bible.

Damola volunteering at 3 Kotze Shelter

Some of the residents have also started attending our church, joining our foundations classes and connect groups. We are also concerned that come December, many of the residents will not have a place to stay, as most shelters close for the holiday seasons. So many of the residents are beginning to get anxious, and desperately looking for a plan to accommodate them during that time. Please do pray for wisdom, strategies and the finances to get out of this situation.

Parenting Conference

We will be having a Parenting Conference on the 16th September, with the theme Proverbs 22:6 - 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.'

One of the preachers I listen to, once said ''It's not what you leave for your children that really matters, but what you leave IN them''. And my prayer is that as we come together, we would learn to leave strengths, truths and values in them, that will guide them long after we are gone.

Perhaps you will be able to come, but regardless please do pray for our Conference, our parents and our children

So till we speak again, God bless and Much love.
