We work to proclaim the Christian Gospel and we have spiritual input in local communities that are open to it.
We work to serve those who need our help in Botswana based on Christian principles and having local people's long term benefit in mind.
This section answers the question on what moves us forward and how we conduct our work.
We are unashamedly Christian and our work reflects that. We reserve the right to proclaim the Good News about Jesus when appropriate. We feel that a focus on physical help alone is incomplete as it does not address peoples' spiritual needs. Jesus famously asked the rhetorical questions: 'What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?' (Mat 16:26) Billions of dollars in foreign aid have failed to address the real challenges faced by Africa and other third world regions of the world and to lift them out of poverty. The challenges faced are often related to issues of the heart, which are not addressed by material possessions.
We work to give both the 'physical bread' but also point people to Jesus who is the bread of life. Jesus said: "...the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." They said to him, "Sir, give us this bread always." Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst." (John 6:33-35)
We work in an ethical manner. We do not discriminate based on gender, race, religion or other criteria. We are entirely against the practice of using practical projects to entice people to 'convert' to certain beliefs. We always offer people a choice to not have to listen to what we say, if they are not interested, without the fear of being excluded from receiving our help.
