Nelson Mandela quote

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.


The Impact Team is really enjoying there new hobby (cray fishing). This was only our second time we went diving and we got more this time. The first week we got 3 crayfish and this Saturday past we caught 15 and brought 8 home. We are getting to our catch per day witch is 4 crayfish per person and we only have 5 guys that got permits so our target is 20 crayfish per day.

We have finally reached our goal. There were times when we nearly gave up, but the reconstructed team are a team of aspiring leaders and great leaders don't give up.

We would like to thank God for carrying us through the year 2008.

We would also wish to extend our thanks to Impact Direct Ministries for their loyal support, always providing us with broadband to make this possible.

Everything we have learnt thus far we would like to share with others.

In order to make this happen we would need resources, whether it be of monetary value or substance. Your support would be highly appreciated.

If we sometimes offend a friend without meaning to, God's Word offers a solution. It's called forgiveness. There is no greater example than the love of God for us. It so great that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, in order that our friendship with God might be restored. He did that in spite of the fact that we have offended Him deeply. We have disobeyed His commands, turned our backs on Him, and followed our own path. So the question remains: What type of friend do you want to be? True Christian friendship forgives.

Do you need a friend? God wants to be your true friend. Are you longing for companionship? God is always with you (Hebrews 13:5). Who do you know who needs a true friend today? God wants you to befriend others. He calls us to be His hands and feet in a world starving for true friendship.

What is mentoring?

It is a programme that empowers learners (mentee)

It involves engaging with a mentee to build their strengths by spending time and talking about issues important to them, e.g. helping with their homework, and encourage their academic development

It is about sensitive listening, self exploration and responsible decision making

It is one-on-one help in the area of basic life skills

Essentially it is helping the learner to reflect on their life experiences

hello everyone i was addicted to drug for more than 8 year and i used various types of drugs.I am now reconstructed and ready to make a difference in our communities.

At the time i was using drugs,it was very exciting but it does not compare with SOCIAL MEDIA it is not even on the same page.If i must talk about my drugging days it will just be about bad thing and nothing good.

On the other hand if i must talk about SOCIAL MEDIA it will just be good and i must admit i am addicted to SOCIAL MEDIA and the more i get addicted,the more people i will
encourage more people will know that there is hope.

The blogging challenge was more exiting than to use drugs where the team had to get 1000 blog posts before end of 2008, so there is a kick in SOCIAL MEDIA.

We as a team would like to ask the world to give us our next blogging challenge.We are exited for our next challenge.

so please leave a comment and drop the challenge for the RECONSTRUCTED TEAM.

Hello everyone this will be my first post for the NEW YEAR 2009....

This is the time of when everybody is setting them self personal goal but the question is do we reach our goals.If we don't reach our goals we are making all kinds of excuses like i could not reach my goals because it was a busy year

here is a tip

let your first and highest goal be LOVE.If LOVE is your highest goal you will accomplish all your other goals.If you don't know God is Love so in what ever we do include God in your plans.

commit your work to the Lord, and then your plans will succeed.
proverbs 16:3

another year of grace

i thank you Jesus that i could make it through another year,i just want to tell everyone out there who do not have Jesus in their life now is the time he gave us another chance,so Lord i pray for everyone who is serving you,i pray for their salvation
