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.

Our lockdown here in South Africa tied in with the end of the first term. We had just transferred over to online classes before the end.
When we were allowed outside in groups! Soaking up the sun between online lectures!
George Whitefield College (GWC) acted swiftly, as has the government. My particular concern has been for the many who are in very cramped living conditions in informal settlements. We hope the lockdown will help arrest the spread of the disease particularly in those areas across the country. Many too are immune-compromised due to HIV and TB. There are also myths spreading that it’s only a disease for the west/white people. Do please pray for those in need where their daily income is gone, for wise government action and for local community groups to be able to assist greatly. Some of these groups are paired across richer and poorer areas of Cape Town. Other local schemes are helping the homeless and farmers.
