What We’ve Done

Since 2002, Emoyeni has sent more than 500 people to South Africa to participate in projects, medical clinics and benevolence outreaches. Combined, their volunteer efforts exceed 40,000 work hours. It is impossible to place a monetary value on those hours, which range from menial tasks (digging ditches and collecting field stones for French drains) to dental extractions, minor surgery and in one infant’s case, even life-saving emergency care. Outreach teams have hosted soccer tournaments and youth rallies. Teams have washed and treated the feet of a thousand children, and fitted them with new shoes. Volunteers have delivered Bibles, blankets and food, and have fitted children for uniforms. Millions of dollars of donated medical and pharmaceutical supplies have been distributed at free clinics. Homes have been built for orphaned children, and churches and day care centers have been constructed and established.

Emoyeni long-term staff and volunteers have built networks, conducted extensive surveys, identified and advocated for vulnerable children, trained social workers, mentored pastors and leaders, hosted camps and training weekends, counseled children, established feeding programs and secured grants and donations from South African and international businesses and groups.

Orphaned and vulnerable children have been supported and provided for: some in foster care; some in new homes built to keep them safe; some through day care and school; some through gifts, food, games and Christmas parties; all in faith and love.

We closed out the week strong today. Although the rains came shortly after lunch time, we still got a lot accomplished. The Kids Camp accommodation is pretty much finished, there are still two windows and one door to install. But all the siding and roof are complete and we even started moving some of the beds (custom built by the team) into the bunk house. Our resident monkey (Nathaniel Rice) even found time to climb a tree and do some trimming for the farm. We concluded our day with a sleepover from some pretty cool kids in the community. The evening was filled with fun and games and some great discipleship time. It’s been a great week! Thank you for all of your prayers and support!

It was a full day here in South Africa! The team was part of a lot of different things today. One group went out this morning and made some home visits, praying with and for people in the community. Others went and spoke to some youth at one of the local schools. Another team went out this afternoon and played soccer with some of the local youth (for the most part, they’re all OK). And of course, construction continued here on the farm for the new kids camp accommodation. Most of the walls are complete, insulation installed, and part of the roof structure is in place. Thanks for all of your prayers and support for our team!
