During the last month, CAST, in partnership with several American and local teams, have put on holiday clubs for three of our communities. The first holiday club was in Chibini, a rural community near Noodsberg. An American team from Seattle came to help, along with CAST and local volunteers. By the last day of holiday club, 200 children had heard the Gospel.
The second holiday club was at Addington Primary School. Westville Baptist and CAST partnered to share the love of Jesus with children in Durban Central. Many children attend Addington Holiday Club because they are home alone while parents are working during the daytime.
The theme of Addington Holiday Club was “Showtime”. The idea behind the theme was that every individual’s life is like a movie. Children were challenged to consider if their life is worth watching, and many kids came to know Christ when they were asked if Jesus was the director of their life. Throughout the week, they watched acted-out TV programmes, and even became the live show!
CAST’s final holiday club was in Mariannridge, one of our newer communities. An American team from Kentucky came to partner with CAST. 80 children attended, and experienced the love of Jesus. This holiday club was a part of the launch of the Youth Development Programme in Mariannridge.
Please be in prayer that the children impacted by these holiday clubs will continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus through CAST’s Youth Development Programmes and local partner churches. If you are interested in tutoring, mentoring, or getting involved with our youth sports programmes, please email CAST at firstname.lastname@example.org.
