We are Jacques & Jonique Adendorff, and you could say our story was basically love at first sight- with an interesting twist.
After meeting in church (2012) and knowing two things from the start: We were called to missions & we will marry! (Not what we had in mind regarding our so called “type”) …
Therefore, in summary, after 3 years of silence, followed by 2 years of talking we found ourselves finally tying “THE KNOT” in the breath-taking Outeniqua Mountains in George, Western Cape! Three weeks later we excitedly relocated to the beautiful City of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, where we joined YWAM (Youth With a Mission) on staff as full-time missionaries.
We are passionate about glorifying Jesus who lovingly sacrificed Himself on the cross for all humanity and to make Him known in all nations for His death-defeating victory & life-giving resurrection, through the power of the Holy-Spirit.
<< Would you consider partnering with us on this upcoming Mission Trip to Greece? >> ????????
Our hearts are to respond to a cry for help in Greece - the same way Paul responded to the Macedonian Call in Acts 16: 9-10. Therefore, we are seeking to serve the Greek community in love and reconciliation through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The first two weeks we will spend our time in Crete to serve a ministry called, Anamnisi (Αν?μνηση Χανι?) who’s involved with the refugees in their area. They create a safe space where they can come and wash their clothes, take a hot shower and have a nice cup of coffee while they are encouraged and loved by those who run this ministry.
Thereafter, we will partner with a ministry called, Operation Joshua (2 – 11 July), where we will participate in distributing modern translated Greek bibles to 100 000 homes around the Ionian Coast, North of Athens. We belief that all people need to have access to a Bible that they can understand in the language that they have been raised in.
The last two weeks still need to be finalised, but we will be involved in partnership with local ministries within the City of Athens.
We are planning to leave South Africa the 12th of June 2019 and will return back to South Africa the 10th of August 2019.
We are raising the funds to cover our expenses for the Mission Trip. The funds will cover the costs for our flights, visa's, ferries, fuel, accommodation and living costs. The amount is an estimate, since we are yet to finalise things for the final two weeks in Athens. However, we are trying to keep the costs as low as possible.
Our hearts are to serve, learn and empower the people of Greece.
We belief the impact is two fold. Firstly, we are going to serve and learn from the Greek community - where we will bring what we have learned from the local ministries back to South Africa and use it in a way that is applicable in our context with regards to community development.
Secondly, we are trusting that the Greek community will be impacted through our love, care and knowledge shared with them, through partnering with the local ministries. Our hearts are to see the community use what God has given them - together with the power of the Holy Spirit and to make and impact in their own communities and the people around them - where we will be more than willing to help and train those who need it.
