Melody is a great asset to the ministry of GRNSA, managing the strategic placement of our counselling tools for children and elderly people in need. She also provides counselling to traumatised families in need.
She and her husband Cobus, also share the vision to develop more prayer support for the work of GRNSA, but also to develop more prayer for our coworkers and for families in need. The fundamental Biblical values are extremely important to them and they build everything they do on that.
Your support will help Melody to give more of her time to this invaluable work. To support Melody financially, see the support page.
