Diaspora Hope - the Least Reached

In the Mother City called Cape Town you will find our team in many different places sharing the love of Christ with people. Some are on the streets in various market areas and others are at our Empowerment Centre called: Chanua. Chanua is a Swahili word meaning “Thrive”. We don’t want people to simple survive but to thrive both in a practical way and spiritually.
We befriend foreigners and neighbors from other faiths.

Utilizá tu profesión para una causa mayor

Cuando Juan se sintió impulsado a dejar sus estudios y dedicarse a la plantación de iglesias, Dios le dejó en claro que terminará esa obra, porque estaba por usar las habilidades de Juan para Sus propósitos.

A bunch of misfits

“I joined a homegroup (Bible Study or life group) two years ago and as time passes, more and more of each member’s character is coming forward,” says Renette. “It dawned on me the other day that we honestly do not have anything in common. No one does the same job or has the same friends or enjoys the same hobbies. No one would have met if it wasn’t for the homegroup. The only thing in common is our love for Jesus.”

Using your profession for a greater cause

When Juan felt compelled to leave his studies and do church planting, God made it clear to him to finish because God was going to use Juan's skills for His purposes.
