“You came back!”

I was surprised to hear those words from Jenny the Tiffany Center manager during our daily team and staff debriefing time. This took place after our classes at the center in Paarl, South Africa. Jenny went on to say that many people had come to help them and said they’d be back but we actually did. Hearing this was especially meaningful because even though we had served three previous times, it took two years to return because of Covid.

This was our fourth time in South Africa teaching at the Tiffany Center in partnership with the NGO Monte Cristo Ministries. We are so grateful for the partnership we have with these fellow believers in Christ.

We had two international teams including people from Belarus, Croatia, and the U.S. Our classes included Bible, Life skills, music, karate, cooking, games and sewing. Our team poured out their love and lives for these students as they learned practical, life-changing skills in the name of Christ.

We’ll be back!
