Valuable to Jesus prayer morning

On 17 December, 80 of our Valuable to Jesus women met on a hill in Mitchell’s Plain. They interceded for the Cape Flats and all the evils like sexual abuse, prostitution and pornography that are prevalent there. The women are hoping that more prayer friends, willing to take part in the Valuable to Jesus campaigns at schools, will join in 2015.

Ophelp Projekte

At the end of last year, Ophelp Projekte celebrated its 10th birthday. A special thanksgiving service was held at the St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Green Point. The prayer of Hannes van der Merwe (manager responsible for the outreaches to the homeless and Ophelp Projekte) was simple and to the point: “Thank you Lord for leading and guiding us in the past 10 years. We honour You for that.” About 200 people attended the service and got together afterwards. Two creative men entertained us with a guitar and a harmonica.

“The best Thanksgiving service…for once it wasn’t about me or the going home early, it was what God has done for people through His people. A special, sincere thanks to all whom I can’t all name right now but they know who they are, for working, no, for investing their time and heart, pouring themselves out without measure, helping, praying and assisting the needy and destitute. It was the best Thanksgiving and year-end.” #fun#coffee#high#laughter#Blessed

Dangerous Women (and Men) Event

Women and men from a background of prostitution, outreach teams, prayer supporters and supporters of the ministry to women caught in prostitution, got together for a wonderful day of sharing testimonies, prayer and inspirational talks. And a lovely meal, of course.

“I decided that I will first accumulate R30 000 in my bank account before leaving the lifestyle of prostitution. A person always says: ‘Tomorrow I’ll stop’. But tomorrow is actually a lot of years down the line. I had to ‘retire’ from the lifestyle of prostitution at a young age. No, I did not have R30 000 in my bank account. My pension was R30 in my pocket, no home, cancer, HIV and TB. I am so grateful that I now know the Lord. I now have the best life insurance policy in the world.”

Serving teams touch hearts

Our motto for the street outreaches during Action Immanuel was servant heartedness, truth and love. The teams consisted of people of different ages, and from different denominations and backgrounds, but the unity between us was visible. We praise the Lord for all the people who were reminded that there is a Living God with a Son, Jesus Christ.

Ann met the Lord many years ago and is a wonderful inspiration for us at Straatwerk. At the Dangerous Women event se handed a certificate to Straatwerk with the following words:

The smile you gave me that lovely night
It might have seemed in vain
And suddenly on some cheerless day
You got it back again

The gifts you give to others from the heart
Be sure, it will be returned to you
For this is God’s great reward

Your sacrifice, the word, your thoughts,
Your good and gracious deeds.

The warm desire to lend a hand
And meet another’s needs

All came to me in some strange way
Like manna from above


This is the work of Straatwerk
God’s perfect law of love

Always in my heart
Ann Prinsloo
