We have seen tremendous growth within our Delft (Cape Town) holiday club leadership team, especially in our 5 new volunteers who rose to the challenge and ventured out of their comfort zones. This year, we had two programmes: our Junior Programme (Cosmic Quest – You’ve been selected) for Grades 3 – 5 learners; and a Senior Programme for Grades 6 – 9. Both were extremely successful. In our Senior Programme, we split the boys and girls into separate groups and ran modules that covered, self-Image, peer pressure, values, choices and love. Through this we were able to build a relationship with each young person and in turn share God’s love with them. A highlight in the girls’ programme was their realization that they are beautiful and special in God’s eyes. Girls were taught how to apply make-up and were given general etiquette tips. This warmed my heart as I’ve never seen so many girls feel so loved and full of smiles as they were reminded that they are loved, beautiful and full of purpose.
The drama was a major highlight in the junior’s programme as it related to their own lives, how they as children need to be obedient to God. We thank God for the 18 young people who made commitments to follow Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour and to grow in their walk with God. Our leaders have already initiated a follow-up process and are aiming to “walk the road” with them after the holiday club.
As a club we were greatly encouraged by the support and prayers that covered us while we ran the club. Donations of various kinds were given to us to ensure that we can run a successful holiday club. The Delft holiday club leadership team is grateful for all efforts that resulted in one more young person hearing the gospel. We were privileged to minister to an average of 300 young people every day.
