Lora Dream Camps recently celebrated their 10th birthday. They work with school chiildren and two of our Accelerate trainers have been involved with Lora for a few years. Santie Schoeman, the founder of Lora, trains young leaders who help train Grade 6 pupils of a primary school in Olievenhoutbosch, a township south of Pretoria.
We asked Santie to comment on her impressions of the impact of the Accelerate inisiative on Lora:
“I am extremely encouraged by the unselfish and loving way these two workers interacted with my camp kids and youth leaders. The way the children can discover God’s truth through His Word truly brings hope. The fact that the children and leaders are in different stages of their emotional and spiritual development, makes it a difficult task, yet all age groups are being ministered to where they’re at.
I will always remember, during the recent camp, how the Lord used the DMM session to calm the 80 rowdy kids down – my mouth literally hung open! The Accelerate trainers'love and patience did the job.”
