The legacy of Mission to South Africa has been teaching and training in God’s word and loving and caring for those with whom we come in contact.
Marilyn continues in the ministry in which she became involved in 2001 – that of sharing the gospel and a substantial meal with children in Leseding, the township near her of about 70,000 with approximately 70 per cent unemployment. This began as a ‘soup kitchen’ in which we actually served soup. But when summer came and it was too hot for soup, the menu was changed to peanut butter and jam sandwiches and fresh milk. Lethabo Kid’s Club is where the children know they will hear God’s message, sing praises, and have a substantial meal. You should see them running to get there!
The youth are a special part of her weekly ministry. God is at work in their lives, and many are developing into leaders in His work.
Hospitality has always been a major part of Cook’s ministry and Marilyn continues to host the youth, visiting missionaries, others who have come to help her and work in the ministry. For this, Grace Place, her home is ideal in providing a quiet place to draw near to the Lord and experience His beautiful creation.
Billy and Connie continue the ministry of Aletheia International Ministries in Johannesburg, feeding mostly children through food donations which come in. This goes to ministries who are teaching the children to know Jesus. An outreach to the very poor in the rural area of northern Limpopo Province has also opened up. There is great need there where many are existing on watered down meiliemeal porridge. All of their sons have been involved in the ministry in the past few years in one way or another – Jeff, Jono, Josh, Morne.
Richard and Cathie are actively involved in the South African side of A World Aware, which is a non-profit organization set up by Michael Calamia of Brighton, Colorado. Cathie is a South African director of the organization.
Kathleen works in a children’s home, Kid’s Haven, near Johannesburg. She is ‘mother’ to about 15 boys from the ages of 14 to 19. She loves her work, and the boys appreciate the special things she cooks and her support for their favorite sports.
The Legacy continues in Stu’s writings, the books which have been published and soon will be and in the Insight Seminars which he developed and are continuing on.
