Intern Update

Posted by 3D-Outreach on 27 March 2015


I am a second year at 3D-outreach.

It is one of the greatest feelings to meet our new team mate: Owen Exall. He arrived here a couple of weeks ago and it has been such a privilege to see him grow in Christ.

We started training and it has been an intensive time where we have sweated blood and tears. I can say it has been tough but training has also been an amazing time for me and my teammates. We have had so many laughs and so many lessons that will remain with us for years to come. My favourite lecture of this year, so far, has been the Discernment lecture, where we have learnt about why it is good to discern between good doctrine and bad doctrine. My favourite part of 3D-Outreach so far would have to be adventure camp where we went to the beautiful Magaliesburg mountains and camped under theIMG_1631 stars one night. I remember it being one of my highlights of training last year and I also believe it will be one of my highlights again this year. In a couple of months I will look back and want to do all of this again, I may actually force my brothers to go camping under the stars. I am excited to see what the Lord has planned for us in the coming months and am excited to go further for Christ and share his name for his glory and his honour.IMG_0023


I’m a second year intern with 3D-Outreach and the past year was amazing, going from country to country, sharing the gospel and growing more in Christ.

Alec and I returned to 3D-outreach on the 23rd of January , and it has been an amazing time. We got to meet our new family member; a first year intern (Owen). For the past few weeks the three of us have been undergoing intensive training, which will prepare us for the mission field.

Training has been a lot of fun and at the same time, very challenging. We had adventure camp where we went into the wilderness to push our bodies and attitudes to the limits. We also had a day called “anything can happen” where we were tested again to the extreme – we went from having everything to being homeless and lacking food for two days and bare foot for one day. All we had was a pot, wooden spoon, a can of beans and maize meal that was to last us for a day and a half.

It is not only physical training that we are getting, but also life skills training – theology, kids ministry, other religions and false teaching. I had an opportunity to lead some of the theology lectures. It was fun and a growing experience. I am really enjoying my time here with my team mates while preparing myself for ministry; it is such a blessing to be here!


Greetings! My name is Owen Exall, I’m from Lesotho and I’m 18 years old. I felt called to come to 3D-Outreach when I saw what my parents’ (who are missionaries) are going through on the field in Lesotho and I figured: if I could be a help to at least one missionary on the field, then this year would be more than worth it. We sometimes forget the challenges that missionaries face and I have a real desire just to be able to help them in seemingly minor things, but one small thing can make such a major difference. I know I will learn a lot from 3D-Outreach and look forward to it. So far I have had a bunch of experiences here at 3D-Outreach and although some of them have been very challenging to me I have also learned a lot from them as well.

I am really enjoying getting to know my team members (Menzi & Alec) and learning from them. I have also been enjoying the lectures, it’s just sometimes difficult to remember everything as there is so much that I need to learn in such a short amount of time. I believe this year will hold big IMG_3643things for us as a team and I’m really looking forward to it, but I know that it won’t be a ‘walk in the park’ and that there will be challenges ahead.

We have been on adventure camp, which was really interesting in a variety of aspects, and we also have had an “Anything Could Happen” event which was also quite an experience. I have realised that with both these events that there are things which I should work on in my life and really appreciate it, because now I can start to work on those struggles.
