We had an exciting day on Saturday with 6 of our OAM Sports Academy Netball girls attending U21 South Western District trials. They all played very well, with Andisiwe and Thandie being selected on the squad. We are now just waiting to hear if they will be selected for the team, so please keep them in your prayers as this would be an amazing opportunity for the girls!

We here at Out of Africa Missions would like to say a massive thank you to Barbara Royce and Charlotte Morton from England, for organising the donation of much needed footballs, football boots and clothing to the OAM Sports Academy! We are so grateful for all your hard work in collecting all the kit! Check back for photos of the kids receiving their new kit!
We here at Out of Africa Missions were extremely blessed to host a YWAM team from Minneapolis, Minnesota for 5 weeks over December and January. The team has been incredible, working so diligently and selflessly to glorify our Lord’s name. We are so thankful for all the blessings the team have brought to the ministries in George, it has been amazing. Here is a video of their time here…we hope it touches you as they have touched the lives of so many people here. Enjoy!
Also don’t forget to check out our facebook page for a selection of photos of the team working in George as well as our blog for some updates from the Team Leader!
With Christmas on our doorsteps, standing in awe of God, we can truly say that this has been a blessed year, where we have had the privilege of seeing many miracles in all of the OAM family’s lives. Thank you so much for each and every person who has given of their time, money, effort and even themselves to help us make Christ known in George and beyond. We pray that you will have a merry Christmas and that 2012 will be showered with the Lord’s blessings for you.
