Action Immanuel in action

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.

A pair of second hand flip-flops or sunglasses for your birthday…

A few days ago it felt like my birthday in Badsberg Close, although it wasn’t. I received the most beautiful letter with the words: “Lisa, I love you. You are my best friend. I hop (instead of ‘hope’) you will come to visit. I love you my best friend. From David.”

‘Oupa’, the young man and the lady…

What do these three people have in common? All three have searched for a place to belong and have found it at Straatwerk. For years Oupa walked to the Straatwerk Ophelp Projekte depot to make a difference in his quiet, peaceful manner. He couldn’t participate in the strenuous cleaning shifts because the hard and tiresome work was physically too difficult for him.
