6 Month Africa 2012
This 6 month immersion team was the pioneering team. They were the first team to experience the Africa Immersion programme. They began their time in Southern Africa in the Eastern Cape. From there they traveled to Maphutseng, Lesotho where they worked with Growing Nations. From there they traveled to Mozambique to conclude their time in Africa.
"I know that living alongside this community and this family is fulfilling part of my purpose in the world. I'm doing exactly what God asks each of us to do--to love the orphans and the widows, the least of these, the people who are vulnerable and who society has forgotten. And despite the injustice that exists all around us, I have to continue believing that our friendships here are bringing joy and dignity into difficult circumstances. I have to believe that there is power over injustice, and that hope does exist. I have to believe that God will hold up his end of the deal--to restore and make all things new." - Heather
