What an amazing year 2016 has been. We started the year off with a team weekend with approximately 20 volunteers attending! We celebrated our 10th year of The Passed Thru Fire Experience by getting the author of the book (Passed Thru Fire), Rick Bundschuh out to experience Passed Thru Fire the “african way”. We were able to organise a few get togethers so that the team could just mix with Rick and glean from him.
We were also privileged to launch The Passed Thru Experience in Australia with Ben De Bruyn, a former PTF boy himself! What a opportunity to see a young man step into manhood!
Our last event is running now on the 2nd of December, this will take us to a total of 6 events this year. Which means we were able to touch approximately 48 families.
Our plan for 2017 is to have 8 events. Starting in January with a fundraising event followed by two Refined By Fire events.
I’d like to end off by saying a huge thank you to our volunteer team, without your support and enthusiasm we would not be able to put on event after event.
Our proposed dates for 2017 are as follows:
- Fundraising – January
- RBF: 17 – 20 February 2017
- RBF: 6 – 9 April 2017
- PTF: 18 – 21 May 2017 (Hunting Weekend)
