Eric D. was recently with us on a mission trip through Discovery Church. Here are some of his thoughts as he looks back on his experience…

I am forever changed by my recent visit to Hope Africa Collective in Cape Town, South Africa. I have a new perspective on discipleship and evangelism, a new hope in my heart, and an even deeper love for Jesus.
The country is beautiful, the people are beautiful, and Hope Africa Collective is making a significant difference in so many lives. People that had no hope, no promise of a future, no relationships, are finding all of those things through the programs and staff there. All of that is possible because it is a Christ-centered organization that thrives on helping people realize their true identity is found only in Christ Jesus. Once their relationship with God, themselves, other people, and the world around them is restored, they are learning to live into the fullness of who God made them to be.
Hope Africa is not only making a difference in the lives of the local community, but they are positively impacting those souls that come to visit from abroad. For me personally, my relationship with Jesus is even stronger because I got a taste of an even fuller and richer life with Christ while in South Africa. God bless the volunteers, the staff, and the organization of Hope Africa Collective. God is moving in major ways through them!
