Adam is spending two years serving in Johannesburg, South Africa, training as a ministry apprentice at Hope Church Auckland Park.
Hope Church Auckland Park holds out the good news of the gospel to the diverse communities in the city. It is led by mission partners James and Lucy Buchanan and, though the church is growing fast, it is in great need of more workers.
In 2016, Adam spent six months serving at Hope Church Auckland Park. He writes, ‘It was a fantastic time to serve in so many areas of church life and experience the very diverse culture and gospel needs that are in Johannesburg.’
As a ministry apprentice at Hope Church, Adam’s primary focus is on youth work, but he is also involved in other areas of church life. Adam also attends Johannesburg Bible College for two mornings each week.
Happy New Year to you all. Thank you so much for your partnership.
Your prayers for me are much appreciated and fill me with a great sense of encouragement as I persevere with my work at Hope Church for the sake of the gospel.
Before Christmas, I went with many of the youth group and other leaders to a youth camp called ‘Crossword’. The camp seemed a great success. The teens from our church and the church plant from Soweto numbered 39 in total. They seemed to really enjoy their time at camp. It was great to spend time with them as we learnt about how awesome God is - and the need to follow Him and trust Him wholeheartedly. It was also great to see how well things came together on camp. To give a little bit of context, the month in the run-up to camp was pretty difficult for a whole range of reasons. I learnt a lot about patience and that I’m really not in control. But thank God that this is the case. If I was in ultimate control, my life would be a real mess. We all felt stretched to the limit and pushed to extremes but through the trials, we can know that someone far greater has been at work. Many of us went into camp feeling unsure of how things were going to turn out but we’re praising God that it went well! Yet again, this was a great demonstration of God’s control and providence over all things for his own glory.
