A few years ago we moved to George to do what we believed He wanted us to do and by His grace alone, despite challenges and imperfections, within the first few years we launched a fewprojects: building homes for people where there was great need (16 families have benefited from this), hosting and facilitating short term mission teams (just over 50 teams to date), upliftment and involvement in the township of Blanco and then, 5 years ago, a Sports Academy for underprivileged children. As some of the individual projects have grown and developed, so the need has arisen for focussed and concentrated attention to the specific ministry for their effective growth and future development. We are therefore excited and thankful for Wayne and Susie as they take the Sports Academy forward as an independent ministry, with whom we are blessed to be working alongside and in association with. We will continue to focus on developing our short term mission teams with better effect and also concentrating on making a spiritual, social and practical impact in Blanco, Golden Valley, through skills training, supporting 4 existing home-based pre-schools and a feeding programme. So, all the best you guys as you pursue Him and make a difference in the young lives to whom God has entrusted in your capable care! Check their

- "Though I was only in George for two short weeks, I felt God open my eyes to so much, and He taught me a lot through our experiences and the people we met."
- "Through OAM, I obtained a better understanding of what it means to see people (including myself) the way God sees people - all equal and in need of a Savior"
- "Being at OAM really reminds me how Jesus came to earth to serve, and that we are called to do the same, no matter where we are and that there is so much that God has given us."
- "OAM helped me to see that living for God is the hardest challenge, but no matter how good or how bad the path is, as long as its for God and my experience showed me exactly this!"
