The Family and their Ministry               ID 19
“Our family has been working with YWAM for more than 12 years in the disadvantaged townships specializing in African-based community transformation and leadership development. To see what we do check out Living Springs Faith Ministries, and our personal web page at We have two boys, Joseph born in 2007 and Jonathan born in December 2008. We are looking for a day-tutor to help Jonathon, who has moderate speech delays (associated with moderate Autism), as he transitions into school. We are within walking distance from gorgeous beaches and mountains in sunny Cape Town.”

Other? “We would like an energetic nanny to help with therapy transport for our son Jonathon who is moderately on the Autism Spectrum (moderate speech delays) and to help apply some of the speech therapy (books, songs, and videos) at home as well. Although an interest in teaching/early education would be great we are mostly looking for someone with a great big heart to engage both boys with a love of learning and sense of fun. Her coming would be an answer to prayer and an unimaginable blessing.” (Their home church is in Virgina, USA).
