Durban, South Africa

(DER-bun) – Missionaries David and Julie Yngsdal, who serve in Durban, South Africa, began helping Mufti, the daughter of a widowed refugee, with her high school fees through Send Relief. Though never interested in attending church during high school, her graduation coincided with the beginning of a new church called the Welcome Center Church. She began attending, accepted Christ, and was one of the first to be baptized in this new congregation. The church lacked anyone to play a musical instrument, so she learned how to play the keyboard. Mufti now plays for weekly worship, is influential as a youth leader, and is active as a witness on the outreach team, going to the “less-fortunate” street people to share about Jesus. Through the Send Relief-supported sewing classes offered at the Welcome Center, she has also become a great seamstress, sewing for clients who help support her further education in computer coding and business. Join the Yngsdals in praying that Mufti’s faith will continue to grow and that she will continue to boldly declare the gospel to those around her (Ephesians 6:20).
