Every week, the team has been covering different topics in life skills. Each morning begins in the classroom, where they study the Bible and receive training in that week's topic. Some of the topics that have been covered include exploring who they are, discovering how to properly take up responsibility and discussing how to take care of their bodies. The team is doing very well, and is actually having fun in the process. In some cases, they are able to get very creative. In this picture, one of our participants shows how she sees her future...what she wants to reach in life.
|WOW...what a vision!!!|
The team has also gone on outreaches into the community. Each one has had the opportunity to share the love of God while providing practical gifts such as food and sleeping bags to other individuals in need. Everyone is able to distinguish our team members by the stylish yellow jerseys they wear!
Also, once a week the participants visit Tiffany's Community Care Centre. There, the team receives computer training from Dorien, and they are progressing in their knowledge of Word and Excel. They each even have their own e-mail address now! Look out internet world...here they come!
Physical exercise is also part of the program. Take a look at the team during a work out in the gym at Tiffany's. They all enjoy this activity a great deal!
All four participants work in the afternoons. One of the participants actually oversees one of MCM's feeding programmes while another manages some of MCM's administrative work. This is a very important part of the programme, and the participants are enjoying it a great deal.
The road to change is long and hard for the homeless. Jacques Heyns, the Full Circle leader, shared "the people (homeless) in the programme earn just a little money and fight against addictions. And sometimes it's difficult for them to love each other in each other's weaknesses, but they choose to go on."
We are blessed to be able to provide this ministry to the homeless and we couldn't do it without our capable staff members, Dorien Kip and Jacques Heyns. Dorien and Jacques...we appreciate you!!!
