Wow, what a year 2017 has been, we have had a record number of 5 events in KZN this year and we had ventured into a new direction with an event in Gauteng focussed on the fatherless. We were able to touch approximately 50+ families.
What a privilege it has been to serve on this amazing team. A team that is made up of nearly 120 volunteers. With students from Kersney College, Thomas Moore, Hillcrest High, St Johns, Epworth, Curro and Hilton College just to name a few in KZN alone. These students keep amazing us in their ability to serve and volunteer time and time again.
2017 also saw the continuation of the Heartland Hunting Experience, headed up by Rich Pooley as well as our outward bound – Heartland Adventures Experiences with Gareth “Frodo” Potgieter at the helm. These Experiences really allow the wild hearts of our boys to take wing. Give us a shout if you would like to know more.
Daryl Schreiber had the amazing opportunity of being a guest speaker at a Q Commons event, Q-Ideas. He was able to share about rights of passage. We also had the opportunity to serve on a Passed Thru Fire in Hawaii on the island of Kauai with Rick Bundschuh. Daryl Schreiber and David Roome traveled to Kauai Christian Fellowship to see how they conduct a Passed Thru Fire with nearly no Father involvement. What a wonderful experience and so much was learned with much of the experience being considered for inclusion locally in SA! They even had the opportunity to give out some “leopard treatment”! (Only those who have been will know…. *insert evil grin here*)
There is such excitement for 2018 as not only will we continue to have the Refined by Fire and Passed thru Fire experiences here in KZN and Gauteng again, but we will also be launching the Western Cape! We are also hoping to initiate the Eastern Cape program next year!
2018 Will also see the launch of the Legacy Experience in Gauteng for School leavers as well as Passed Thru Fire Advanced… watch this space!
To all of you who have loyally supported Heartland and our endeavors, we would like to thank you for your love, support, and heart and wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. May the Kind walk with you and Bless you, abundantly.
We’d love to give a shout out to the following business’ who have supported us throughout the 11 years!
