Tucked between the Queensburgh Industrial Area and Malvern, is an informal settlement called Burlington. While the world sees poverty, AIDS, violence, garbage, and hopelessness; God sees the next Gideon, David, or army of Israel. Our heart for this community developed as we visited and prayed, and God lead us to serve the people. We have now been there for over 10 years.
Siyathuthuka means “we lift up” and our heart is to help raise up leaders within the community who have the same heart and vision for their community.
We conduct house visits, set up training seminars, partner with a local church, do basic health care, enjoy evangelism and prayer walks, and have dreams of building a team from the community that will empower those surrounding them.
We have only scratched the surface of what God dreams for this small community of powerful Zulu warriors. As we wait on Him, get His strategies, see people come to know who they are in Him, we believe that Burlington will indeed rise above its current state and cause great transformation throughout South Africa!
