Throughout this lockdown, Leon and I have created bridges to bring our different strategy teams together. These collaborative efforts have helped reach people for Christ. We have shared in our updates over the last year how our ministry has hosted several evangelistic & discipleship online events to engage people to share the gospel and build believers in their faith.

Last year, I led a small group of ladies from my church through The Significant Woman, a life-coaching discipleship resource for women. This year, I wanted to explore more material from The Significance Project (Cru ministry) to help believers take the journey with friends and co-workers, called Soaring. In January, I attended The Significance Project training Zoom call with leaders from all over the world.

A fellow staff member shared this John Maxwell quote as we opened our time together, “I’ve never collaborated with anyone that is good that didn’t make me better.” This quote gave me the courage to learn a new resource, because I knew a South African team of women were praying and helping me encourage ladies to understand their unique design.

On Leon’s birthday, he allowed me to begin the first round of Soaring 2021 with 9 ladies from different South African cities like Johannesburg and Durban. I even had a woman attend from the neighboring country of Namibia. Co-leading with a volunteer named Jessica, the ladies introduced themselves and agreed to partner together in this journey to help them better understand their unique design.

With Soaring we use six principles to guide the journey. The principles are Celebrate Your Uniqueness, Identify Your Core Values, Define Your Life Foundation, Discover Your Life Direction, Integrate Direction into Your Life, and Soaring with Your Life Design.

Please pray for the ladies that God will meet them wherever they are in their journeys. Pray for Jessica and myself that we will be sensitive to God’s leading and facilitate well. If you would like to learn more about The Significance Project, you can find them online at
