The HEART of Crossroads

The HEART of Crossroads
Big things have happened at Crossroads during 2015. As we celebrated Easter with our teens, we realized the need for Crossroads staff to connect with the teens & get to the things of their hearts. With funding being limited, Crossroads has been trying to do the programs by reaching out to volunteers & using the little funding available for the most important needs that cannot do without it. The process of connecting with our teens has been extraordinary for Crossroads the last few months as we have seen teens grow enormously when it comes to their faith in Christ. We have had teens who have never been in church before & now even attend the youth during the week. We have teens who debated about what to believe in and with the guidance the staff has been giving, our teens have a better understand of God's Word. We have teens who struggle with issues at home & just by sharing, have experienced the care and comfort others have to offer. We have seen their skills, we have heard their voices, we have experienced their rhythm & we have seen love grow.

THANKS TO UVS

THANKS TO UVS

We would like to thank UVS for their generous donation toward our computer room expansion project. Our attendance has grown vastly this year. Our highest attendance in a day goes up to 81 teens! Due to the demand, we have to expand our computer room as we currently only have 6 PC’s for the teens to use for school work. We want to expand to 12 PC’s. In order for us to do the project, we require the funding of the community and those who have a heart to support those in need as we rely on donations as a NPO & PBO. UVS saw our need and invested toward it. We are very grateful..

1ST TERM NEWSLETTER - 2015

SEX & DATING WORKSHOP

We thank Kobus Joubert for reaching out to the teens in Empangeni by offering a Sex & Dating Series/Workshop at Crossroads Teen Centre during the month of February & March. We had over 50 teens attend the workshop and we know this made a big impact on them as we received several feedback from some of the teenagers. Kobus addressed matters such as Sex before marriage, friendships, & problems boys and girls experience in life. With the video clips shown and the bible verses taught, our teens learned things they never knew before. We are grateful to God for allowing this series & for speaking to the hearts of these kids in need.
