“I first heard about the Mabopane Foundation and the children when Becky came to talk to my church circle about 13 years ago. I was so touched by the children’s stories that I knew I wanted to volunteer. But at that time, I had a job and volunteers were only on site at the Mission House the same two days that I worked.
A couple of years later when I was fully retired, I immediately came out to the Mission House to let Becky know that I was available to volunteer. I learned that volunteers could then come out any day. I immediately started working in the children’s room and have continued there for about 10 years.
I love serving along side my sister-in-law Jackie knowing that, in some small way, we are helping these beautiful children at Ya Bana Village. It’s been amazing to see how God has worked over this time and to be part of this mission.”
