Norfolk Christian School
Eleven missionaries from Norfolk Christian Schools joined us for 2 weeks of fantastic ministry in KwaMhlanga at Charity Christian Fellowship Church. Their time was spent primarily assisting the creche (preschool) teachers at the church as well as serving at a local primary school where they tutored and helped students prepare for their upcoming exams. After school was also a very busy time as nearly 80 students came to the church each day for soccer and additional tutoring. All of these opportunities allowed great relationships to be built and the gospel to be shared with the children of the community. We hope to continue to build on the momentum this team was able to build and establish a more permanent after school program in this community.
Team Member Testimonies
"God has taught me that there is more to life then what is on a TV screen. He has also taught me that love can go a long way by just showing love to someone."
"God has taught me to stretch myself and do things I'm not normally comfortable with. He is also taught me that I can conquer more than I think and I have more in me then I think."
"God showed me that doing simple things can mean a big deal to others. Also that even if you're out of your comfort zone, God can use you in big ways."
"On this trip I was taught how to fully depend on Christ. It was really difficult to be away from home and to be immersed in a new culture with a team of people I'd never really had a conversation with before. It was a really sweet time for my relationship with the Lord."
"God showed me the importance of daily devotional time. The days I had devotions I had better energy, mood and leadership of the team. Days without the devotions were the opposite."
Greg and Annie Moses
Greg and Annie are teachers in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia Beach, VA. In 2010 they were a part of the ministry programs surrounding the Soccer World Cup at Eastside Community Church. Since their time in South Africa, Greg and Annie have had a passion and longing to continue their service in the under resourced communities surrounding Pretoria.
Greg’s passion for people is contagious and his love for the Lord is evident in the way he pursues Christ through his life. Annie’s heart to disciple and mentor young people is evident as she consistently strives for excellence in all areas of her life. This summer, South Africa will become “home” once again as they mentor and disciple this year’s group of Serve South Africa 6-week Interns.
