Today was the start of Mom 2.0. We had had the 1st Cafe session at the Impact Center.
It was very encouraging for me to see the Mom's get excited about technology and the possibilities it could hold for them.
The guys from the Reconstructed Team will also be facilitators in Mom 2.0. The world needs to soon get ready for our "Super Techno Moms".
Will keep you guys updated.
Today was the first session with the ladies from the Mom 2.0 team.It was very blessed.Marlon presented to them what he was going to do in the weeks to come.They were amazed at what you can all do via technology.They seemed very exited about what they are going to do.They have already received homework in their first session.I,m so exited for them.I know God is going to do awesome things through their lives.God bless our moms

A little over a year ago I was still involved in substance abuse and gangsterism and I thought there was no hope for me. Alot has changed since then, I met Jesus Christ and he changed my life.
Since then I have become the Chairperson of the Local Drug Action Committee in the Athlone District and I am actively involved in the fight against substance abuse and related social ills...
The other big thing that has happened in my life this year is that I completed my 1 year course in Principles of Event Management at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and obtained a 75% overall aggregate. It was a hard year for me coming out of the hectic lifestyle I lead and having to go back and study at university to obtain an internationally recognised qualification. But God was gracious to me and gave me the strength to push through.
God's hand is really upon me and his favour surrounds me because my wife Shameez and I have also started our own business and things are really looking good for the business.
Matthew 6:33 "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and these things will be given to you as well.
hi everybody this is Chad age 21 he was on drugs and know set free by the Power of God.
Chad is always full of joy and like to help where he can.Chad want his brother Joshua to do well in school and in his sports, but at this moment Joshua is struggling with his school Chad want the readers to pray for his brother.
In five years time Chad is hoping still to be alive.He can see the bright future ahead of him and he don't want to miss the plans God has for him.
One of his dreams is to play professional soccer and no one can help him achieve that goal only God.
please keep Chad in your prayers

This is exciting times for me when I just think back 1.5 years ago I was hanging out on street corners getting high on drugs, getting involved in gang activities and getting into trouble with the law.
I was approached by Department of Social Development to do a 5 minute with the new MEC of Social Development, Mrs. Zodwa Magwaza at an event to welcome her into her new position. There were many other dignitaries from local government as well as Ceo's and Directors of organisations present at the meeting. I was there in the capacity of Chairman of Athlone Local Drug Action Committee.
Wow God has brought me a mighty long way in short period. All glory, honour and praise be to God, for there is none like him.
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart
Watch this space! Be blessed.
so JESUS IS LIFE AND HE HAS GIVEN ME LIFE AND HE CAN DO THE SHAME FOR YOU THAT IS LIFE!!!!!

I was encouraged to see one of my brothers in Christ back at the Impact Center after he went through a tough time the last few months.
My encouragement to all is that no matter what we do and no matter what we say there is nothing that nobody can do that will seperate God's love for us. It is from his unfailing love for us that God's all sufficient grace flows.
Hallelujah we serve a awesome God.
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace that you have been saved,

Thank God for Divine links
IT BROUTH ME TO THE SCRUBTURE THAT JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 19-26 JESUS LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID WITH MAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE ,BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE SO THAT MEANS THAT IMPOSSIBLE DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO GOD AND FOR HUMAN IT DOES MEAN SOMTHING AND THAT IS A BIG CHALLEGE IN OUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE THEY DONT BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN DO IT SO THATS WHY WE HAVE A BIG CHALLEGE AHEAD OF US SO FOR GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR GOD SO WE AS CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH KING CAN STAND ON THAT WORD AND PROMISE GOD BLESS.
Yet again God had shown up big time. All glory and praise to God
If there is any person out there that is struggling with drugs and think that there is no purpose for your life, that you don’t have anything to live for….God has a plan and purpose for you
I spent the afternoon at Tafelsig High School with the Grade 9 scholars. We are working with Earl Erasmus from The Dream Center and we will be initiating the Action Learning course at Tafelsig High.
This is another project Impact Direct Ministries is involved with in our quest to reconstruct communities.
Will keep you guys updated.
Hi this is me standing in Klipfonftein road creating awareness of fetal alcohol syndrome.
We can change tomorrow today....
Who would have said that i would stand in the streets of cape town and creating awareness
God is really Good and i cant go without God
Jesus love you....
Hi there, yes it's me again.
Yes I know twice in a day, that's a bonus right!
This morning the Athlone Local Drug Action Committee (ALDAC) of which I am the Chairperson, together with Early Years Services (EYS) had a March / Placard demonstration down the busiest main road in Athlone. The purpose of the march was to raise awareness of FAS and the dangers of females consuming alcohol during pregnancy.
Looking back at my life, the Lord really brought a long way, cause I would never have been involved with anything that was anti drinking alcohol and drugs.
The journey continues....
Today is my birthday and I am enjoying it in the presence of God. If this was 1.5 years ago I would have been planned a huge party with drugs and alcohol, but alot has changed. Jesus Christ came to deliver me from that lifestyle and set my feet upon a rock.
Psalm 2: 7-8: "I will proclaim the decree of the Lord: He said to me, "You are my son, today I have become your father. Ask of me and I will make the nations your inheritance and the ends of the earth your possession."
Praise be to God, I am a son of the most high God and I have an inheritance. Thank you Jesus!

On Thursday last week myself and Brent attended the www conference held at UCT. We had to sketch the background from which we came to attendees in order for them to see how technology has helped in the reconstruction of our lives.
This was a really big occasion for myself and Brent as we never would have imagined we would be speaking at a www conference to people who are leaders in the IT field. WOW!!!
A few very good contacts were made with individuals who could possibly help take this venture to the next dimension. I am excited to see how this is all going to unfold.
Will keep you updated.

This morning myself and Marlon Parker will be off to Grahamstown to a media conference.We will be presenting our mxit project and how technology can help with the tension in our communities.
Firstly we will be flying to Port Elizabeth and then we will be driving to Port Elizabeth.This will be my first time flying and naturally I am over the moon.This might seem small or petty to some people,but to someone like me that come off from drugs and out of gangsterism this is huge.I use to walk around when I was little and think that flying was only for rich people.I never had hopes or dreams.But today I know that I am rich indeed,i,m rich in blessings.Flying today is going to be a new”high” for me.
I know and believe that this is only the first of many flights I will be taking.I will be going to the nations and making disciples of all nations as the word of God declares.I cant help but shed a tear while typing out this.Wow,how great is our God.
I give God all the praise and glory for everything he is doing.I,m just so honoured that I can be a vessel to carry the fire and the glory of God.
I will be updating you guys as I go along.Right now I have to run as Marlon is on his way already and I need to get ready
To all the readers out there I wanna say,DREAM BIG!!!!

The impact team is having a team building (braai and potjiekos)
It is nice to see that our brother Shaun is fellowshipping with us
It is always good for brethren to come together and speak about the goodness of GOD
This is exactly what Shaun need right now
PROVERBS 27-17……As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
I never thought in a million years that this once drug addict would be speaking to people of that stature and at U.C.T nogal.God is just taking the team to new heights and places.
I give God all the praise and glory for what He is doing in my and the guys life.
God has really taken me from the pit to the palace, just like he has did for Joseph.
God is so faithful

The Mxit counselling service is going into a new dimension completely. We have at subscribers as far as the Eastern Cape using the service.
Through counselling on Mxit many young people are looking for organisations that could help them with their drug addictions. We even had a young man coming from Camps Bay to the Impact Center for one-on-one counselling for his drug addiction.
Marlon Parker and Brent Williams will be attending an Afgrican Media Conference in Grahamstown this weekend and they will be doing a presentation on the Mxit counselling service.
I will be keeping you guys updated re. Mxit counselling service.
Greetings in Jesus name. Yesterday a young gentleman by the name of Igshaan walked into the Impact Centre looking for help with his drug addiction.
one thing that we do at the Impact Center is Honoring our leaders,and our Spiritual Father is 60 years old today and our guys is making cards for him
Exodus 20:12....Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
if we all stand together we can save tomorrow today
1 Peter 3:13-14....who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?But even if you should suffer for what is right,you are blessed.
Please do good say no to DRUGS and turn to God in your time of Trouble.
