In 2007, Brentwood UMC funded the construction of a church building in the Tumbleweed community of South Africa. This initial relationship grew into a ministry that now connects sponsors to children and teachers in three different South African schools. At each of our partner schools, children receive a God-centered educational foundation, as well as emotional and spiritual intervention and care.
We take an annual trip with a missions team to learn more about our South Africa ministries, provide a project we will do on the ground and learn how best to support them in the coming year. Mission trip members will build lasting relationships with the students we sponsor, the teachers we support, and the staff of Brentwood Methodist Pre-Primary School, Angels' Care Centre, and Thembelihle Pre-Primary and Primary Schools. This year we will also be providing basic physicals for students and a Vacation Bible School for some of the students.
