Dear friends and family,


It is with grateful hearts that we write this newsletter to you. We have truly tasted and seen the goodness of God over the last 3 months. He has surprised us in ways that we never thought possible – even amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


 


Damon was blessed with an opportunity to go deep-sea-fishing where they caught 50 Snoek (each weighing between 3 and 5kg’s.) This was specifically special to Damon because he absolutely loves to go fishing but this was the first time doing it from a boat in the middle of the ocean!


 


We also celebrated Damon’s 27th birthday on the 17th of June – the only way South Africans know how… TO BRAAI!


Work:


Work has slowly begun at the office again. We are currently on a rooster in accordance to the COVID-19 health regulations. We go to the office 3 days a week, in different time slots – other than that work continues from home and as normal.


 


Please pray for us to be focused and that our work will always be done in excellence.


 


Family Devotionals:


Damon and I have truly been blessed by our time as a family over zoom. We still meet twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday). This time has been so precious to us, especially since we live so far away from our families.


 


Please pray that we will all continue to grow in the Lord during these times and that His salvation will reign in the hearts of our families.


 


Going Deeper Girls’ Group:


The Going Deeper girls' group I started during lockdown has grown to 20 young ladies from across the world and South Africa. The purpose of this group is to go deeper with each other as well as the Lord – fulfilling the Great Commandment to Love the Lord and to Love each other.


Since our last newsletter we have meet twice over zoom and have chatted around different topics and teachings.


 


Please pray for wisdom in running such a group. Pray for the ladies to be more vulnerable and open to sharing in the group. Please pray for the Lord to work deeply in our hearts drawing us closer to HIM first as well as each other.


 


Online Context:


WHO IS GOD?/God’s Attributes


Damon has recently started a weekly teaching on: WHO IS GOD?  This gets posted every Sunday on my Facebook account as well as on YouTube.


 


Coffee with Gigi:


I have also started an online teaching called Coffee with Gigi where we focus on dealing with different labels that we wear – that effect our Identity. This gets posted every Saturday.


Going Deeper Girls’ Group:


The Going Deeper girls' group I started during lockdown has grown to 20 young ladies from across the world and South Africa. The purpose of this group is to go deeper with each other as well as the Lord – fulfilling the Great Commandment to Love the Lord and to Love each other.

Far Above Rubies: Uganda


During our visit to the South Sudanese Refugee camps in December last year, I had the privilege of sharing my story, along with lessons from my book Far Above Rubies and identity in Christ with some of the youth.


One of our brothers within the camp was deeply touched by this teaching. Since then I have sent him a PDF copy of my book and he has held two teaching sessions (one for boys and one for girls) using the material and my story.


Words cannot even begin to describe how humbled and blessed I am to know that the Lord is using me, my story, and this material for His GLORY! Nothing we go through is ever wasted in HIS KINGDOM!


Psalm 115:1 “Not to us oh God, not to us, but to your name be the glory!”


Please pray that the Lord would continue to use this book and my story for His GLORY alone!


 


Far Above Rubies & Online Materials


As mentioned in our previous newsletter, I have recently started up a personal blog and website as well.


 


You can find all our online materials as seen below:

Thank you for all of you love, prayers and support – we appreciate you so much.


Love Damon & Gigi
