The University of Cape Town hosts more than 20,000 students from 98 different nations and is ranked as the #1 university on the African continent. It is renown as the "Harvard of Africa." They serve with the Student Y Christian society, a reformed, interdenominational ministry located right in the center of campus. Their ministry focus is "Teaching students to follow Jesus for life." The Student Y has been serving God in this way for over 60 years.

They enjoy teaching Bible, discipline and mentoring these future leaders who have come here from all across the world. The campus is both extremely multicultural and multilingual, creating a very exciting environment in which to see leadership skills developing in these young Christian men and women. They have been so blessed to see them catch on fire for the Lord and greatly impact their families, villages and cities when returning home over school holidays and upon graduation. In a continent poised between promise and despair, it is their passion to see each and every one of these students continues to impact their nations for the Lord.

They praise God for the way He has led so many students to the Y, and for the relationships they have been blessed with. Together they have directly taught or otherwise impacted the lives of over 80 students during their first two years on the field. Their home and family are an important extension of their ministry, allowing them to become like temporary "parents, brothers and sisters" to many. Their children, Calla (13), Lake (12) and Liam (8) love interacting with the students and really enjoy taking part in their ministry.

As each New Year begins with a strong evangelistic campaign on campus, pray for them as they prepare. Please pray for UCT students; that those who do not know the Lord might be led to the Y and seek Him, and those Christian students would join in at the Y for solid teaching, discipleship, warm fellowship and the opportunity to serve. Pray for them as they need much boldness, wisdom and discernment in their relationships with students, to reach out to the unreached and to counsel and guide students in their faith.
