APRIL BIG ANNOUNCEMENT:
Return to America Permanently

After months of prayer, research and discussion...we have decided to move back to America permanently.

WHY WE ARE MOVING BACK: Although we have been earnestly exploring the educational possibilities for Emme's next phase of life (as it relates to Down syndrome), we have been unable to find anything for her that gives us peace in our hearts to continue with her education here.

We know the educational system and culture of "value for those with special needs" in America is first class. While we have had peace to be here the last five years, we believe God is leading us in this new direction.

HOW WE FEEL: Our hearts are very sad to leave South Africa, as we deeply love this community and amazing people of Africa. Read more...

 

 

Julie loves motherhood! She started Motherhood is Beautiful, as a holistic program in South Africa created to empower at-risk mothers through mentoring, skills development, and job creation.

"Empower a Mom.com" is the brand name of the beautiful products made in our job creation program.

 

 

 

Karl coaches with Ubuntu Sports - a unqiue soccer academy program that combines premier coaching, quality education with Biblical principles to raise up godly African leaders. Read more...

 

God invites ordinary people (that's you and me) to make an extraordinary difference!

We rely 100% on monthly giving and one-time donations to sustain ministry and living costs in South Africa.

We are asking you to consider joining our friends and family in supporting us financially!
