Meet the 2008 Team

Posted by 3D-Outreach on 18 January 2008

We are very excited that our 2008 Missions Internship Year Team has arrived! The coming year is full of hope and promise for them and we look forward to seeing God at work in their lives. We have asked each of them to share a little bit below about who they are to help you get to know them better. It is always so amazing to us to see how God takes young people from all over and brings them together as a team to accomplish His work. We are excited about this group of interns and we are anticipating an amazing year!


I was born on the 12th of March 1983. Within my first year, I became very ill with meningitis. The doctors said that I had a 5% chance of survival and the best medicine for me was prayer!

I recovered and 6 years later, started school. In my first year of school, I lost my dad in a car accident. My mom re-married and I developed a good relationship with my step dad.

I was very fit and running half marathons in less than 2 hours until the age of 18 when I was diagnosed with epilepsy.

I worked in a bakery for 3 years, after which I enrolled for a one year stint at the ‘Beyond Adventure’ ministry school. I was praying that God would reveal to me His will and purpose for my life.

Right at the beginning of January 2008, I heard about 3D-Outreach, enrolled, and was accepted onto team.

My goal for this year is to move in the direction that God wants me to move in. I want God to shake me from my comfort zone, help me overcome my fears, and I would like the opportunity to bring the word of salvation to the lost.


I am 23 years old and from the South of Johannesburg in an area called Orange Farm.

Being with Youth for Christ for the past three years made me realise that I had a deep passion for ministry in the area of missions, particularly working and interacting with youth (not closing out the old though!).

In December last year, when I returned from Germany, I was not sure what my plans were to be in 2008, although during 2007, I had been praying about my future plans.

I received a 3D pamphlet from a friend and after going through it, realised that this was the direction I should probably move toward. I always knew that my destiny lay within mission’s ministry and getting to know the goals and objectives of 3D, really excited me.

I have often read in the gospels how Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, but today, I have rarely seen that kind of humility in practice. I really do see 3D attempting to do that, however, and that is what appeals to me the most about the organisation.

I am expectant of God to do great things in my life this year. I believe that He will equip me in a sense of revealing many spiritual truths about myself and all of Gods creation. I also believe that being a part of 3D is a step closer to where God wants me to be and what He wants me to be doing, because I know that I am not yet there.


I went on a mission trip to Prince Albert about 2 years ago. It was a life changing experience seeing the work God did in the week I was away. It was a big eye opener for me, seeing God use lost and broken people, when all they had to offer was themselves. Ever since then, I feel God has placed a passion in my heart for missions; to do His will and help the lost.

When I finished high school, and being undecided as to what my future would be, the fire in my heart had not burnt out. My studies were uncertain, but felt very keen to participate in a ‘year of your life’ programme. It was at summer camp that I met Rolf and learnt about 3D-Outreach. I knew in my heart that I wanted to go into a missions programme, and there were a couple of choices ranging from 6 months to two years. My prayer was that if the Lord’s intention were for me to join the team at 3D, that He would open all the doors for me in terms of money and getting to Jo’burg (since I am from Cape Town). All the doors were very obviously opened and here I am!

My expectation for 2008 is that God would bring our team so close together and I have faith that He is going to blow our minds with the work He will be doing through us. I also have faith that each team member is going to walk away from this experience a changed and spiritually grown person through God’s divine intervention.


I grew up in a Christian home, but never really committed myself until September 2007.

When I was at university, I got mixed up with the wrong crowed and got into some bad habits. After a few years, my bad habits caught up with me and left me feeling lonely and depressed. It was at this point that I decided to re-commit my life to Christ.

I got involved with 3D-Outreach after hearing the last 2 minutes of an interview with Rolf on radio pulpit. I got the basic idea of what the organisation was about and took down the number. I thank God that I made the call to 3D, applied, and have now been accepted onto team for 2008.

My expectation for this year is to grow spiritually. I feel that I have been called by God and just want to make a difference to people’s lives. I would like to use the experience I gain this year to apply for a position in government. I would like to help children and youth through a practical, hands-on, and Christian approach. My dream is to make a difference using the political system.
