Tom used his university summer holidays to serve in South Africa for two months.
Tom served alongside Crosslinks mission partners James and Lucy Buchanan at Hope Church Auckland Park. He was involved with evangelism and discipleship, youth and children’s work, students and young adults’ ministry and led bible studies one-to-one and in small groups.
Thank you so much for your prayers! I’m two weeks into my trip to Johannesburg so it’s time to write my first prayer letter.
A few hours after arriving into South Africa, I found myself joining the young adults in their evening bible study. Fast forward one sleep and I’m on a university campus doing my first day of student work. The next day I’m running around with 40 energetic kids for six hours. I think it’s safe to stay they got me stuck in pretty quickly here at Hope Church! That’s something I’ve really appreciated here; everyone has really made an effort to get me involved and to get to know me better. Special thanks to Crosslinks mission partners James and Lucy Buchanan who have been absolutely wonderful. Adam and S’bu, the two guys I’m living next to, have been so welcoming and really helped me settle in.
