Outreach to the DRC, Swakopmund, Namibia

It started off with holy discontent and the need to BE the change. As part of Shofar Christian Church, we as a small group felt the need to reach out. To live adventurous faith by adding hope to the lives of others.

So on 15th April 2012, after having collected second hand clothes and food supplies from church members, we packed them in cars and headed off to foreign territory – the DRC (the poorest part of Swakopmund, Namibia).

Driving as a group of white and brown people, we were somewhat still alien to the surrounding area. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Elizabeth and many children and their parents. So we spent time with the kids… playing and laughing…whilst poverty and need seemed looming imminently.

After clothes and supplies had been sorted, we started distributing. It seemed the number of people present doubled within the second of us starting the distributions. And heavyhearted we had to acknowledge that what seemed like a lot still back at our church would never even suffice to give everyone at least a piece of clothing.

It was an afternoon of laughter, loving, singing and dancing… and observing with God’s heart the need of people He early loves.

Please pray…

…for the children and their families at Ubuntu Day Care that their need will be met

…for Elizabeth…that GOD may bless her abundantly for what she accomplished there

…for us…to go again soon…and to BE the change

and for yourself…to become part of the change right there…where you live…and where need is imminent. May God give you a holy discontent too.
