6 Month Africa 2016
the 6 month Immersion team of 2016 began their trip working in the Olievenhoutbosch Christian School in Olievenhoutbosch, South Africa. From Gauteng they transitioned to Maputseng, Lesotho. There they worked with Growing Nations serving alongside resident students. From there they traveled to the West coast of Namibia where they served in Swakopmound. There they served with a local church and invested in the local merchants.
"This is my friend Jen from the local market in Namibia
Our friendship began one day while I was browsing her shop. Before we knew it, we were sitting on the pavement in front of her shop talking.
During our time in Namibia we went to the market several times, not to buy but to build relationships. Every time we went, I spoke to Jen.
Jen told me her story. Jen taught me that no matter what your situation is, others still come before yourself. She is overflowing with compassion for others and so genuinely wants to spread the hope of Jesus to the hopeless." - Alicia
