Prayer Requests

Hello family and friends,

We were so privileged to share this weekend in our church Grace Community, and shared some requests for prayer that we have right now. We thought we would blog about them all and ask you to continue to pray for these needs.


Antoine, a support group leader at Living Hope, with his family. He is a refugee from the Congo and has been suffering under the violence towards refugees recently in the townships of Cape Town

Angela (on right), is a support group leader for Living Hope and is a refugee from Zimbabwe. She is also suffering currently from the violence towards refugees in South Africa.

Hilary Adonis, the woman who co-lead the HIV support group with me in the Oceanview township. She is an ANGEL, and continues to love and teach so many in Oceanview.

Here are the leaders in the Red Hill township with Casey.

A college student at State, who has gone through Grace's youth ministry, is currently serving in South Africa with Living Hope. Her name is Anna Bradsure, she is AWESOME, and we are so excited she is sharing in this place we love! She has a great blog at:

Continued problems in the country of Zimbabwe, check out this article:

We will continue to update the blog throughout the summer about what is happening in Cape Town and how you can be praying for our incredible friends!

Book Review

"Long Walk to Freedom" by Nelson Mandela
Reviewed by Sarah

I recently finished Nelson Mandela's autobiography and want to recommend it to all of you! Nelson Mandela has an incredible life story as he fought the oppression and injustices of apartheid. Twenty-seven years of his life were spent in jail as a prisoner just for his political affiliation with the African National Congress party in South Africa. Even while a prisoner, Mandela always stood up for his own dignity and led his people out of a dark history. In 1994 Nelson Mandela was elected as president of South Africa in the country's first democratic election. This simple, humble, but profound book is a beautiful depiction of Mandela's life journey towards greatness. I thoroughly recommend it!
