This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

Action Immanuel in action

Belinda Bekker

God has never asked us to save the world, as He has already overcome it. He has, however, asked us to share what we have received – THE TRUTH.

John 8:32: “…the truth will set you free…”

The Action Immanuel team consisted of about 30 volunteers, aged between 11 and 70 years. We stayed at Straatwerk headquarters for the duration of the outreach, functioning as a spiritual family under one roof. As the body of Christ, we moved and breathed as one. We had the opportunity to press pause on our own fast-paced lives and, with our Father’s guidance, walk into the reality of so many others.

We walked and talked with those we met on the streets of Cape Town and Parow, making ourselves available to listen to the stories of whoever wanted to share them with us. But how do you find the right words to penetrate the fortress that broken people have built around them?

Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart…”

There was one moment that is imprinted on my mind. I saw a young teenage girl involved in prostitution and approached her. I embraced her with open arms and, instead of exchanging many words, she released her bottled up tears. And as her hot tears rolled down my back, I whispered over and over again: “God loves you…God loves you…” Action Immanuel was a time of joining hands and reaching out to those who normally go unnoticed, ignored and passed by without a second thought.

Thank you to everyone who made this outreach possible.
