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 childhood when visiting her grandparents in Cape Town. It wasn’t until she’d become a Christian at university that God gave her the desire to be involved with teaching his word to others.
Having worked in Durban with students for 12 years, Nerena hopes that her studies at GWC will refresh and equip her for continued ministry among women and girls in the present and the future. Please pray for the ability to learn well. By remaining in South Africa, she hopes to continue learning cultural lessons and ways of loving others, African-style. Cape Town is very different from Durban so please pray for adjustments.

Hello from Cape Town :-)
The Lord has brought me safely through the first term of theological college here in Cape Town. There have been the joys of discovering more of who Jesus is: for example, in our Mark’s gospel class, I’d never noticed before that in Chapter 5 Jesus cast out 2,000 or more evil spirits from Legion and restored the man to be a disciple of his. That’s power and authority! This passage was a topic of great discussion as any work in Africa requires much teaching on demons, evil spirits and witches. One Zambian brother was telling me that on any visit to a rural Zambian church the first thing expected of a preacher would be to talk about witches/witchdoctors (and a Christian response, I presume). As a college in South Africa which bridges Western ideologies as well as African, please pray for God’s wisdom for staff and equipping for all students, many of whom will return to the more African end of the cultural spectrum.
