Life can sometimes be hard. When those times come, it’s easy for us to get discouraged and underestimate our God given value.
At Not Forgotten, we envision the people of South Africa being awakened by their Maker to realize the destiny they have deep inside. Each person has been created by God to accomplish something great in the earth. We believe that destiny is ignited when someone has a personal encounter with Jesus. Once someone meets Jesus, value is restored, purpose is released, and dreams are awakened.
Not Forgotten is devoted to awaken the love of Christ within the people of South Africa through education, discipleship, and development.
Not Forgotten’s active vision is:
Releasing purpose, Awakening Dreams
(Scripture Inspiration: Isa. 49:14-16 ; Luke 12:6-7)
Our goal is to provide a high quality education to every child to create greater opportunities later in life. Education increases a child’s confidence, food security, and opens the door to economic empowerment of the individual and the community.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Mandela
Discipleship is a lifelong process of helping others follow Jesus. We believe that discipleship is most effective when it is intentional, relational, and community centered. As we do life together: hearts are transformed, minds are renewed, and worlds are turned upside down!
It is our goal to reinforce the God-given value in each and every person we serve. We love to inspire people to improve their lives by using the gifts and abilities that God has given them to support themselves. By providing opportunities for people to celebrate their capacity to work, we seek to encourage the belief that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13)
Because we value family, both natural and spiritual, we refuse to place our work or ministry above our marriages and our children. As a spiritual family, we value relationships based on mutual love, honour and peace.
Empowerment is about helping others realize their value and potential. We will seek to empower youth and their parents through education, leadership development, and job skills training.
The Bible is the most published book in the world. When compared to other antiquities, the Bible is the most trusted book in the world. We accept the Bible as the ultimate authority and standard for how we live and what we believe. As leaders who are seeking transformation, we believe that the word of God is foundational to bring about true transformation in the lives of people and the communities that we serve.
We are committed to being accountable in our relationships, finances, and our faith. For us, accountability helps us develop our potential, gain trust from others, walk with integrity, and paves the way for us to achieve our goals.
“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety” ~ Proverbs 11:14
The essence of Faith is hope. The outward expression of Faith is love. Therefore, we understand the powerful effect hope has upon every heart that it fills. A heart filled with hope has the ability to see the unseen and love the unloved. We will be a people that walk in faith, declare hope, and stir up one another to love.
Hospitality is warm, sweet, and welcoming. Our passion is to create an atmosphere of family and a place where people feel accepted and loved.
