Joshua Project Golf Day once again a huge success We are so happy to share that we were blessed with a perfect day for our annual Golf Day this year. An event which helps raise both awareness and much needed funds to continue serving and supporting vulnerable children and youth in Jeffreys Bay. The Golf Club management once again made sure the course was in great condition. Club captain Peter Viljoen and both Leonard Rodriques and Philip Louw did an excellent job to make the day run well. A very big thank you for the dedication and hard work of the organizing committee consisting of Frans van Eeden, Vincent Tee, Michelle Dorfling from Joshua Project and Margaret Rodriques who spear-headed the committee as well as all our generous sponsors, without whom, this day would not have been possible. Even during financially difficult times, they still opened their hearts and hands for the vulnerable children in Jeffreys Bay. We commend each sponsor. Eighty golfers took part in the I.P.S. competition this year; we want to thank them for playing with such good spirit and for generously supporting our cause. They were rewarded with free drinks on the short holes and could qualify for two hampers for those nearest to the pin. There were many wonderful prizes up for grabs which included a flat screen television as first prize won by Eldred J van Rensberg. Other prizes included; a golf bag, great meat prizes, appliances, vouchers and many more. Joey van Jaarsveld walked away with a lovely beauty voucher as first prize for the ladies. There was also a lucky draw competition where a lovely hamper, 2 nights accommodation and Coca-Cola goodies could be won. All in all, it was a blessed event and we look forward to going bigger and even better next year! Thank you also to Gerrit Boshoff for photos included.

My Pilgrimage to Success ​​​​​​by Keanu Horn

The “Sunshine Team” is where it all began – a group of young, motivated teenagers who came together on a weekly basis to speak about real life issues and how they would be able to help each other to deal with these issues. This took place about six years ago and it is still clear to me as daylight. Tannie Michelle Dorfling was our life coach and spiritual mentor, and she always gave us advice. The fellowship we had as a group was what kept me going.
As a scholar at Pellsrus Primary school, I was unhappy, depressed in a way – because of all the verbal and mental abuse I had gone through every day. But I knew that on Tuesdays after school the Sunshine Team would get together, and my day would end on a high note. One day we were talking about which high school we wanted to attend post-primary school. I had just heard about this new private school – Global Leadership Academy (GLA) and I immediately decided that I want to go there, I wanted to get out of the negative environment at Pellsrus Primary – don’t get me wrong, Pellsrus is a good school, but I just wasn’t happy there.
The only obstacle with attending at GLA was that the school fees were really expensive. I spoke to tannie Michelle and she told me about the “Sponsor a Child” initiative, a program that Joshua Project ran to improve the lives of young people in our community. I immediately applied for sponsorship, and it got approved. Then and there my whole life changed.
It is now six years later and I have matriculated (at GLA) with a Bachelor’s degree pass and three distinctions. None of this would have been possible without the input of the Joshua Project Team, and the financial support of Strato IT Group (my sponsor). I believe that God sends certain people on your path to make a change in your life, and I want to be that certain person for another human being as well. The Joshua Project taught me lessons that I will never forget, and they opened my eyes to a world wherein I could strive and be happy. I cannot thank the people that puts an effort into my life and my future, enough.

A last few words for the youngsters out there: Anything is possible, do not be afraid to pursue your dreams, a miracle just might come your way. The Joshua Project team teaches us the doctrine of Jeremiah 29: 11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
This is all the confirmation we need to be successful in life. Be blessed! Xx
