Every day we hit the ground running with Pastor Mlugisi and his beautiful wife Naomi. From Hope International in Rustenburg, South Africa. Week Two we traveled each day lecturing in schools. We also performed for the orphans and in a Youth Detention Center, where we facilitated a Dream Building Session.
GIVE IT SHALL BE GIVEN
Each morning as we showed up to serve in the schools, we were greeted with the angelic sounds of children worshipping, SIMPLY AMAZING!"
Minister Sara Watkins (Youth Ministry Leader - Coriopolis Abundant Life Ministries) ministered to the children in dance with a special song from Yolanda Adams, You Gotta Believe. The children at one of the schools gave Sara a new name; Bioutumelo, which means HAPPINESS.
Antriece Hart (Dance Ministry Leader-Pentecostal Temple) Choreographed and taught a dance to Martha Munuzzi's EXCELLENT. And the students and staff joined in after being taught the dance in one session through a call/response technique.
This Amazing Man And His School
This principal had such a great care for his school, students, and the educators, at his school where the children learned in multiple dialects.
Maximillion shared a word of encouragement regarding the educators lofty task, the students educational pursuits, and anything else the children set their minds and hearts to do that would Glorify God!
She encouraged them to be leaders, to dream big, live their dreams and then reach back and support their communities and their Nation!
"God is calling the children of today to the GREAT commission and assignments of tomorrow!"
The Children Were Encouraged!
Everywhere we travelled we heard the same thing. The children are encouraged, that GOD would send people all the way from "the other side" (that is to say from the other side of the world) to minister to them.
What the children didn't realize is that they were ministering to our team just as much as our team was ministering to them. The U.S Team learned so much from this trip. Lessons in faith, courage, perseverance and humility.
Lessons on how God can use a little to get a LOT done, like the miracle of multiplication in Matthew 14.
It is All Nations Dance's desire to travel to South Africa annually and to take a team to help serve up and coming ministries who impact the lives of future leaders. Prayerfully consider supporting this great work!
