Pastor Quinton and Louise Arnold are children of the soil. They are ordained ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ and have a passion for the children and youth in general. They are married with 2 children Corbin , Lanah and the latest addition, Micah . Both their children are actively involved and participate in the various programs.
As a couple they spent 2 years at Lavender Hill High School, January 2006 – August 2008, as learner counsellors and also filled various other duties. Since then they have impacted the lives of so many in Montague Village, Village Heights, Westlake, Cape Academy Maths and Science School, Steenberg and surrounds, Lotus River, Rheenendal Knysna and Chatsworth. Their dedication and commitment in enriching these young lives have certainly put them in good stead in these communities.
They are not deterred by the economic and social upheaval where these kids grow up because they believe in their calling by God and that He will supply their every need. Today they are even pushing forward in their pursuit to change as many young lives and youth to be actively involved, enriched and empowered to create a step in the right direction within the areas they come from.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. [ MATTHEW 19V1]
Ten years on and God has been gracious to us. The sporadic gang violence in some areas really hampered our efforts to meet with the young people. But thank God for social media which came in handy to stay in contact with them. The challenges has brought about new opportunities for the team to explore which resulted in our area of influence being extended. We thank God for the growth and our goal is to grow this work even more.
We continue to end the year with a big bang in presenting and hosting our children’s Christmas party and Seniors lunch. This is all made possible by the generous donations by family and friends.
Our aim / goal remains to grow our youth, to empower them, and then to “release” them into the community to live meaningful lives and to contribute in a positive way to the betterment of areas in which they reside and work in.
