Dear Friends,

I’ve been meaning to write on here for a while now and I’ve finally gotten around to it, if things go according to plan I’d like to try and put out updates around once a week or so.

This week I’ve been working with Berakah quite intensively, as a ministry they have been undergoing some big changes, and part of those changes is that I’m going to be stepping in as the General Manager over Berakah and Viva, which means that I will be directly in charge of running/overseeing the two centers between Berakah and Viva.

Berakah Educational Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Mamelodi that takes care of Orphans and Vulnerable Children, they provide education to all ages of people in the community from pre-school daycare to life skills development, and they also work in the area of business development and income generating activities for the community.

Berakah is the name given to the Daycare, After School care, and Nursery center. Viva life foundation is the name given to the Orphan and Vulnerable care facility, as well as the life skills/business development center once it’s fully completed.

Berakah is currently in the process of expanding their classrooms. Viva is in the process of expanding their facilities to be able to accommodate more care families for the Orphans and Vulnerable Children. Students from the University of Pretoria are working in partnership with Berakah and Viva, and have sponsored the new building projects. Praise God for his provision.

On a side note I’m buying a car, and I should have it by the end of next week, I’m excited about that. That’s news from South Africa! More news to come soon...Thanks for your prayers and support.

God Bless,

-Bryan Hill
