Learning to Pass It On!

Seeing former student succeed and go on to do well is very rewarding. Richard and Walter studied with us before our school moved to the new location. Last year they did very well and are now top of their classes in their respective Secondary schools. Now for both Term holidays, they’ve come back and have not only been a tremendous help with the farm and in practical areas in the school, but they have been doing personal tutoring and coaching during the holidays! We pay them for their efforts which is taking care of their school fees for next Term. Wonderful boys we are so proud of!

Aid to Saharaui Refugee Camps- Part 2

One thing that brings meaning to my life and makes me fight to make it happen is our yearly visit to the refugee camps in the Sahara desert. Its hard to imagine in a developed world with the latest technologies at our fingertips what life is like in the camps. Our first night upon arrival is such an emotional time, as we  meet our friends, exchange hugs and kisses, sleep under the stars, and feel the cold breeze of the desert night... And this is just the beginning.

Project Cartwheel on the road

Angela Mischke

The adventure began when we left Pretoria, South Africa, in a convoy of 7 vehicles, 4 trailers, and 28 people who love Jesus enough to go out to preach the gospel to the “uttermost parts of the earth!” The ends of the earth is certainly how it felt when we reached the end of the tarred road in the southwestern part of Zambia, and traveled on dirt roads that were not even charted on the GPS maps used by 4x4 enthusiasts in Southern Africa.

Get Activated Booklets in Mozambique

Angela Boetius

“Don’t you have any more of those wonderful little books?” We had been asked this question repeatedly by our friends, who immensely enjoyed the Get Activated booklets. A fellow missionary had brought these booklets for us when he came from Brazil. A suitcase can only hold so much, and it wasn’t long until our limited amount of books had disappeared. It has been quite challenging for us over the last nine years that we have ministered here to obtain Portuguese materials, which is the language spoken and read by the majority of the population.

The Sahara Refugee Project

Descendants of the Recabites, the Saharauis are a Bedouin tribe – some of whom had settled in the Western Sahara, near the ocean. The area became a Spanish colony in the late nineteenth century for over 100 years until 1976. The Moroccan government displaced the Saharauis by bringing Moroccan citizens into western Sahara, displacing them from their homes and lands into the desert. A subsequent war forced a greater part of the Saharaui population into the desert where they live in refugee camps supported by the UN since it is an area of scarce water or food.
