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.

Beautiful, fragrant flowers for the next harvest. Paul said he thanked God that he always lead him in victory and through him diffused the fragrance of the knowledge of Jesus in every place. As we leave one season behind we look forward to the next and to our God to do the same for us and through us for his glory. Last week one of the farm staff got wonderfully saved and delivered from Satan's hand. May he be the first fruit of this next season. ... See MoreSee Less
