Who are we?

We are Ewald and Anrie Steyn, full-time Christian missionaries. We have been living and working in Lerato Park Semi-Informal Settlement, Kimberley, Northern Cape, South Africa, for the past last 12 years. We had 2 foster children from the community under our care for most of this time. The eldest, Kelebogile, 25 years old, is now married with two beautiful daughters, Kaylen and Keziah. The youngest, Thetiwe, 18 years old, is still living with us.

Where do we serve?

We serve in Lerato Park Semi-Informal Settlement, as well as the wider township area Kimberley. Most of the people we work with are low-income and underprivileged people.

Our current transport situation

Currently, we have no motor vehicle. Our previous vehicles were too old, breaking down so often that we could not afford anymore to keep them on the road. As a result, we had to sell them all. Currently, our only mode of transport is a bicycle. With it, we have to take our grandchild to school, do all our groceries, visit people at their homes for spiritual teaching and distribute food donations to our church people.

Why do we need a Double Cab Pick-up Truck?

Apart from transporting our church people, mostly for ministerial needs, we also regularly need to transport goods like food, donated clothing, etc. For maintenance purposes at our mission station, where we also reside, we regularly require a vehicle that can do hard work, like transporting gravel, bricks, and stones, or do refuse removal, a service not rendered in our neighborhood by the local municipality.

When do we need the Double Cab Pick-up Truck?

We already urgently need such a vehicle, since we currently have no motor vehicle. As a target date for this fundraiser, we have decided on 31 December 2021, in order to provide enough time to spread the message and gather funds for the project.

Why do we want to use crowdfunding?

We are living on a donation-based income. Most of our financial supporters are family and friends whose incomes are not sufficient to meet this need of ours on their own. Furthermore, our income is not sufficient for us to qualify for a loan to buy a new vehicle.

We’ve added vehicle insurance and maintenance costs for 4 years to our target budget. This is to ensure that we have the necessary finances to take proper care of the vehicle for the first 4 years of its use. This will also give us 4 years to promote the ministry more and get more monthly financial sponsors on board so that after 4 years, will be able to cover the vehicle’s insurance and maintenance costs from the ministry’s monthly income.
