Our story is an amazing miracle, God’s idea story, something about Divine Appointments. It happened over three continents, meeting the right people at the right time at the most unexpected places. Two life stories coming together.
The first chapter in the story began in South Africa with Pastor Andries Enslin praying about his future and the church he started 19 years ago. In his heart, he feels a pull towards the USA and Texas in particular. Going to google maps, he feels a nudge towards Austin and sees names like New Braunfels, Wimberley, Round Rock, Georgetown.
As he is looking at the map, he receives an invitation to a church conference in New Zealand. It was at this City Impact Church conference in New Zealand, where he met Pastor Jeff from Austin, Texas. From the start, there was a connection and a curiosity about the meeting. The more Pastor Jeff talked about Austin, his church, and what they were praying about, the more Pastor Andries felt he must explore it.
