Cape Town is the capital of South Africa and where All Nation’s base is. It is 5334 miles south of Edinburgh!
My journey with All Nations started in 2007 when I first read the founder of All Nations, Floyd McClung’s book ‘You See Bones, I See an Army’. Years later, I had the chance to meet up with Floyd and was challenged and inspired by what he shared about All Nations. I then had an opportunity to go to All Nations in Cape Town. During my Two week trip in November 2015 I served in a township helping with a children’s ministry and street evangelism. I knew that it was somewhere God was calling me to return.
I completed their All Nations ‘Forge’ training school. between February and July 2017 including an outreach to Uganda with an unreached Muslim people group. I then joined All Nations as staff at the end of my training.
I am now serving in a local township called ‘Ocean View’ which was formed during Apartheid. It is 20% Muslim. Ocean View faces multiple challenges including high unemployment, drugs, crime, prostitution and young people falling out of school. All Nations have worked in Ocean View for over 10 years and last year were able to buy property for a base called ‘Hope Town’, a base for church, education and tutoring, business and skills training.
In an environment where young people suffer a lot of trauma and grief as a normal part of their lives, Hope Town aims to show them how to live life with passion and purpose, to introduce them to the love of the Father and give them a new vision for their lives. For young people in a father-less generation to experience God as their Father and to know that the love of God can be the one unchanging thing in their lives.
