I2B and CSA updates

What we've been doing to inspire the youth....

New skate ramps for I2B Macassar

Last year we built a skate ramp for the I2B Macassar club but unfortunately it was stolen. This year we decided to build them a manual pad and rail to give the club a boost for 2016! It was great to spend some quality time with these ambitious skaters and also to partner with local people like Pastor David Ligwa.

Cloetesville park mini revamp

We have been trying to get permission from the municipality for quite some time to rebuild the I2B Skatepark in Cloetesvile but we are still waiting for the final papers to be approved. Until then the best we can do is to temporarily fix up parts of the tennis courts that are being used for skating.

It was an I2B Day!
During the school holidays we held an "It's an I2B Day" at the I2B Skatepark in Somerset West. Many skaters came to strut their stuff and enjoy a skate session.

Congratulations to Max Ahrens for getting added to the CS team!

Our I2B Skim Day was held on the coldest day of the holiday but this did not stop our skimmers from pulling off some amazing tricks! 

Cape Argus Sport Show
I had the privilege of rollerblading at the Cape Argus Sport Show at Sandringham farm near Stellenbosch. A special thank you to Brent and Melody Tuson from Extreme Sport Shows and Pro Ramps for giving me this opportunity and for sponsoring our Kleinvlei skaters with tickets to join in the fun!

Nationals 2016
We had an amazing time during Nationals in Bloemfontein. I am thankful for the family that I made throughout the years, all the support I received and to be able to finish my Nationals-career in my home province - where it all started.

Outreaches in Bloemfontein
During my time in Bloemfontein we also connected with the local community. Here we spent some time with younger athletes at the Martie du Plessis school.

We also visited a Rehabilitation Center.

Thank you very much to Shofar Christian Church in Bloemfontein for your prayers and support throughout the Nationals.

Our time at Nationals was jam packed with a lot of activities... we had great fellowship, served some coffee, shared testimonies and did Bible studies. Thanks to Tori, Julia and Chrissie for taking the lead. Thank you to Marius for sharing your testimony and also to everyone else who helped.

Visiting my hometown
It was amazing to spend some time with old friends and getting to know some new family member in my hometown, Virginia.

We even had a race for the fun of it!

It was also great to connect and encourage some friends at Repairite.

Educational Therapy by Jami
Therapy at Raithby
I started giving small group therapy after screening some of the learners at Raithby Primary School. I mainly focused on Phono-Graphix Therapy (reading and writing) with the younger grades. I also started giving language therapy to a group of isiXhosa learners who have to follow the curriculum in Afrikaans as Raithby is an Afrikaans medium school. Already I have seen progress during the few sessions I have worked with these amazing children!

Chris and I started revamping the therapy room at Raithby. It was a bigger job than we had initially thought but we are excited to see what the end result is going to look like!

Christian Skaters Leadership Camp 2016
We were very excited to take the leaders from our clubs to Langebaan for our very first Christian Skaters Leadership Camp. We had such a great time skating at the Langebaan Skatepark, skimming at the beach and discussing God's word.


We celebrated one of our club leaders recommitting his life to the Lord and getting baptized. We're very proud of you Reagan and we look forward to the plans God has for your future!


Even our dogs enjoyed the camp!

During the evenings we set some time aside to do action sports ministry training with the leaders (Ready Set Go).

A very special thank you to Uncle Roy and Auntie Thelma from the Langebaan Skatepark for helping us with accommodation, letting us skate at the park and blessing us with some delicious meals!
