“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God you will receive what He has promised.”
Serving here at Vastfontein, is to be bringers of hope in many hopeless situations. I am often astounded at the circumstances and challenges some children and adults need to endure. During the school holidays I ran a Teen Dream and career pathing program for the teenagers in our care homes. As I sat with each one of them, analysing the output of the program to put a plan together for their future, I could not believe some of the trauma many of them have encountered by the age of 14.
I often marvel at the privileges I have had during my upbringing and adult life. It is so much easier for most of us to hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, because we have it so easy.
The Lord has placed Vastfontein strategically to transform the surrounding communities in a holistic manner with the foundation being spiritual transformation. We may never take our eyes of the goal of our purpose, knowing that each activity is a vehicle by which people can come to know the Lord Jesus and each interaction is an opportunity for people to see our Lord’s love in action. As we journey with people educating, training, developing and mentoring them, we hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, spurring one another and others on towards love and good deeds, because we know He that has called us, have promised and is faithful and we will be richly reward.
