Nerena is studying a three-year degree in Theology at George Whitefield College (GWC) in Cape Town.
Nerena’s love for South Africa grew from visiting her grandparents in Cape Town as a child. When she became a Christian whilst at university, God gave Nerena the desire to be involved with teaching his word to others. Nerena spent 12 years involved in student ministry in Durban, before moving to Cape Town to study at GWC.
Nerena hopes that her studies at GWC will refresh and equip her for continued ministry among women and girls. She hopes that studying in South Africa will mean that she can continue learning cultural lessons and ways of loving others, African-style.

Hello from Cape Town!
I remember the GWC principal saying in our introductory sermon in January 2019 that at college we were going to learn discipline. Lockdown has a particular way of constraining you for discipline. Some of the choices of (good!) things have been taken away. The constraints of this year have had a disciplining effect. The disciplining effect of college I particularly feel is in limited people-time and increased book-time. The Lord has used it to work on the fear of man in my heart. Although I have felt the impact of not being able to visit UK churches, friends and family, the Lord has used it for good for my studies and for getting to know others here. It has been excellent staying on in res and there is a good sense of teamwork as we stick at studying together. We shall look back and remember 2020 together I’m sure! We started the September holiday with a very entertaining zoom quiz night for college women. We start the final term of the year on 14 September.
