Youth Mission Trip October 2015

I’m writing this blog in bed, unable to sleep because of a mix of loud sounds rumbling through the building. Someone is playing guitar with 3 or 4 voices singing Jesus music out of tune. There is talking and laughing, ping pong balls bouncing and all this is happening at 23:45. This is day 4 of our missions trip to Hammanskraal. 16 Of us are involved in spreading the gospel through a Holiday Club, sports ministry and teens ministry. We are based at Bethesda Outreach and so far we have had a great time, allow me to give you a quick peek at what we have been up to.

Over the course of three days we ministered to a community named Bosplaas. There were around 70 children and it was a great joy to demonstrate love and spend time with them each day, declaring the life changing message of the gospel. Our team got involved in many different areas.

I also had the opportunity to meet and share with a courageous family across the street from the church.

One of the great things to see during this trip is how a bunch of diverse, young (As young as 14) and largely inexperienced people can be used by God in such an exciting way. Short term mission trips is like bending the bow on someones life, preparing them for a life of passionate service for God. I pray this for our group of 16 young men and women. Praise God for using ordinary people for spreading His glorious name.

Revelation 5:12 saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
