SMASH Update

We are so excited to share with you about our recent SMASH trip! SMASH stands for Students Ministering And Serving Him, and is a missions trip for local teens, providing them an opportunity to raise support and serve God right here in South Africa. This years’ SMASH team headed to First Baptist Church of Kokstad, about 3 hours from Durban.
On our team, we had a total of 21 youth and leaders from 5 different churches. We ran an Holiday Bible Club (HBC or VBS) for the church, did work projects around the church property, helped out at a soup kitchen, as well as a small amount of street evangelism. We saw over 40 people commit their lives to Christ.
Our first day of HBC we had 30 children, and every day the group grew until, on Friday, there were 103 children!









We started every day around the Word of God in personal devotions, and ended every evening gathered around the Word in corporate study and worship. It is such a privilege to see how God is using His Word to change the lives of His people!
