“I expected more land space. I didn’t think it would be a fully-fledged city,” said Raquel, an American student from Florida International University, about her expectations of Cape Town. She is part of a team of students who are currently in South Africa for 5 weeks on a mission trip. This trip is organised by CCC in the US and is an annual mission’s trip for university students there. Raquel is on her first trip to Africa- one of many to come I suspect.
We went to pray at the University of the Western Cape (UWC), which is my alma mater. UWC is on a break for the June holidays. As the Western Cape team we went to do prayer walking -preparing the grounds for the next semester at the university. It was a wonderful time we had with the US team; we prayed, danced and sang declaring that the ground at UWC belongs to God.
It is because of a trip like this that I also gave my heart to the Lord. A team came while I was a student and one of the students shared the gospel with me. I knew soon afterwards that I wanted to ministry work…and here I am today!
