August and Anita relies on the support of donors, and they are responsible for raising their own funds. You are invited to become part of their ministry by supporting their work financially. August received his calling when he was sixteen years old. At a youth meeting God spoke clearly to him and there was no doubt in his mind that God wanted him in fulltime ministry. He finished his Bachelors degree in theology at Stellenbosch University near Cape Town, where he met his wife Anita. After a week of knowing each other they knew that "this is it", and they married within 4 months. (One of his Sesotho names is Potlaki, which means the one who is always in a hurry.) August was constantly confronted by question of what he was going to do after his studies. Although many Dutch Reformed Church pastors could not find work inside the church, August was convinced that God had a special place for him. He just had to be obedient to God's guidance. In his final year God opened the doors for them to go to Lesotho. They have been working at Tebellong since 1993 and now they see how God is blessing the leadership development that took place over the years. Prayer requests:- Personal spiritual growth for August and his family. Leadership development and discipleship program. Financial support:- Praise God that August's personal budget is fully supported!
