From Vision to Reality – that’s an exciting journey! We were asking the question of how we can reach and walk with the people with whom we come into contact with when they live scattered across the Cape Flats, and also how can we affect their communities positively. Then came the vision to convert a double-decker bus into a mobile Youth and Community Center.
From then on there was a lot of dreaming, planning and rethinking again. We submitted project proposals, had meetings with bus companies, learned a lot, planned some more, and had to rethink again many times. Furthermore we did several trainings in needs-based programs in order to address some of the problems the people are facing. And at the same time we could watch how God provided for this project as more and more money for the bus came in in different ways. And that is necessary and will be necessary again and again, since such a bus project not only creates an incredible number of opportunities, but at the same time also permanently causes quite some running costs.
We are currently looking for the right bus and are totally excited to see when we can finally get started and what God will do through the bus ministry.
