Jaleigh Dennis


I'm going to South Africa!!!

I am looking forward to this opportunity to serve in so many ways!  The best part is that it combines many of my passions—specifically children’s ministry and disability ministry.  I have had a desire to work with Jeff and Abby Hunt through Engage Africa, as well as Jackson’s Ridge since I met them and heard about their ministries.  I feel this is the time I am to go and simply serve the ministries and the people in Johannesburg and Rustenburg.

I would appreciate your support through both prayers and financial means!  Follow the instructions below to give using a check.  To give securely using a debit/credit card, give here.  If you are committing to praying for this ministry opportunity, I would love to hear from you at jaleighdennis@yahoo.com.

Read on for more specifics of what the team will be doing while we are there.

I will be working with Engage Africa, which is an organization committed to impacting the orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) of South Africa. Largely due to the AIDS pandemic that continues to devastate sub-Saharan Africa, there are an estimated 2,000,000 orphans in the country of South Africa alone. Through children’s shelters and homes, life skills training, AIDS education, and organized sports, Engage Africa is striving to engage the OVC of South Africa in life to the full.

I will be involved in every aspect of our mission in Rustenburg South Africa. I will live on the grounds of the Lighthouse Children's Shelter providing care for HIV/AIDs orphans and other children at risk. In addition to helping at the shelter, I will possibly be involved in the following activities:

Children’s feeding programs and after school tutoring centers
HIV/AIDs awareness presentations in the public schools of Rustenburg
Children’s ministry at local churches
Children’s ministry outreaches in villages, townships, and informal settlements
OneHope book (Bible) distributions in the area public schools
Children’s Ministry Training events in local churches
Disability Conference at Jackson’s Ridge Children’s Ministry Training Centre

I am responsible for my flight and room/board while in South Africa. Engage Africa will provide supervision, transportation, training, and coaching.
