My name is Anne and i’m a mentoring leader at Victory Christian Church, Jeffreys Bay.
I was approached by Lorinda, one of the mentoring ladies who owns the beauty salon Aqua Spa, as her and her ladies wanted to give back to the community and use their skills to bless some less fortunate girls with pedicures. I had the perfect group of young ladies that I knew would be so thrilled by this pampering experience.
The girls, ranging from 14-18, are a group of teenagers from the township/location who volunteer their time at an afterschool program at Victory4All (www.victory4all.com). On a Monday afternoon these girls are mentored and on a Thursday they give back.
They are stunning youth leaders who give of their time and heart to serve God and the next generation.
Despite some harsh realities of their lives, their circumstances may be very different to Western teenage girls, these young ladies are strong and full of determination to change their world around them.
So on a sunny Monday afternoon, 5 ladies from Aqua Spa, including Lorinda herself, came to the Victory4All worship centre with footbaths, massage oils and everything you could need for the ultimate pedicure.
It is truly amazing to see the joy on the young girls’ faces as they feel valued and loved through this simple but generous gesture of these professional ladies.
