Heather's Heart For Africa

My name is Heather and I am a missionary. In August of 2013, I encountered Jesus in a very real and very life changing way. After years of Jesus chasing my heart and me rejecting him repetivitely, I finally let him show me his love for me and in faith entrusted my everything to him. His love has profoundly changed me, has given me identity as a daughter of God, healed me of physical and emotional pain, and he has revealed to me, my calling to serve the people he loves in South Africa.

Restoration. Healing. Identity. Wholeness. These are the areas in which I feel God has called me into deeper, in and through ministry. These are the areas in which Jesus has and continues to influence my life through the power of his love and through His presence here on earth, the Holy Spirit.

I am on staff with YWAM Muizenberg in Cape Town, South Africa (www.ywammuizenberg.org). I work full time for a ministry called Bethesda House (www.bethesdahouse.org), a healing center where people can find wholeness through Jesus for body, soul and spirit.

I am passionate about helping others to find wholeness, just as I have found only through Jesus in my own life. I am passionate about living a life set apart from religion, but instead fully living an authentic life in full relationship and community with the full Trinity of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I am passionate about seeing people encounter the Holy Spirit and live lives led by the Spirit who lives in us when we choose faith in Jesus. I am passionate about working with the post-Apartheid generations in South Africa to find healing, restoration and reconciliation. I am passionate about bringing together people of different race, ethnic, national and cultural differences. I am passionate about walking with people to find the truth about Jesus and his power and love.

His love has forever changed my life and I am called by God to carry the light he has given me to others so that they can discover the same hope I have found.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." -Matthew 11:28-30
