Living Grace* is hosting a “Ride for Recovery Breakfast Run” on 13 April 2013 beginning at 7 a.m in Muizenberg, the ride will take you around the Peninsular ending at Living Hope in Capri.  The cost is R100 per person and includes  breakfast and coffee. All funds raised will benefit the substance abuse recovery programme at Living Grace.

For more information call 021 788 9702 or email

*Living Grace is a ministry of Living Hope and is focused on reaching out to the Homeless and the Addicted.

The Homeless ministry provides help in the form of daily meals, locker storage, shower and laundry and a clothing shop to people.  Spiritual help is a significant focus.  CLients also receive access to social service, medical care and opportunities for employment and accommodation.

A major issue in driving poverty and AIDS is Substance Abuse.  The Substance Abuse program offers outpatient rehabilitation to clients in all the areas we serve.  The program is based on a “road to recovery” model.

It is important to note that Living Grace does not charge for any of its services and relies solely on donor support to continue to offer a helping hand to those in desperate circumstances.

Thanks so much for your support this year.


The first annual Ride to Recovery took place on a beautiful Saturday. On November 17th, area bikers joined together at Food Love’s Market in Tokai where they rode a stunning 2 hour route around the peninsula. They viewed several Living Hope communities and finished the ride at Living Hope offices in Capri. The riders were treated to a light brunch, served by Living Grace staff and clients. All funds raised benefited Living Grace. Peter Lovick, General Manager of Living Grace, is an avid biker, especially for a great cause.

Many local residents chose to spend their 67 minutes serving the clients and staff of Living Hope. Combined, our local community of volunteers logged over 24 hours worth of service.

“God Bless all those who gave a representative of the goodness that is so often hidden within the hearts of people – we had the privilege of being the recipients and it was truly a blessing,” Sandy Lovick, (Manager, Living Care).

Fifteen members of the South African Military Medical Corps from the Simonstown Sickbay served in the Living Way Health Care Centre Unit for 67 minutes which allowed mangers to provide a tea for their own staff and allow them 67 minutes away from the ward. The University of Delaware missions team also served the staff.

The medics assisted Living Care Manager, Sandy Lovick, with the hands on care of the patients while other servicemen served and helped feed patients while others cleaned windows, and swept and mopped the floors throughout the Unit.

A branch of the Navy attended to the gardens and sanded and varnished two benches for the verandah. They also presented us with a cake decorated with the Navy crest that was shared by patients and staff.

Adding sunshine as his 67 minutes, rollup blinds were fitted by Matthew Hare as his contribution to Mandela Day. These were to the value of R10,000.00, a tremendous assistance to the comfort of the patients.

Also in the Health Care Centre, staff members from Harcourts Property provided a collection of biscuits from their staff. Representatives shared a packet with each patient and left us with a bag full of packets for distribution at a later date.

Two young ladies from Masi arrived and asked what they could do and willingly emptied dustbins and mopped floors. A young man from Ocean View cleaned windows, which meant that every window had been cleaned by the end of the day!

Ladies of the Seven Day Adventist Church delivered a gift for every staff member to say thank you for what the staff do for others everyday as they work at Living Hope. As Living Hope continues to offer health care screenings, two teams from America assisted, making it possible to test 123 people in just over three hours.

Russel Rigter (volunteer) assisted with the co-ordination of Silvermine Academy who varnished Living Hope’s wooden bungalows at False Bay hospital and Liz Potgieter (volunteer) took the photos at False Bay hospital.

Jackie Boshoff cleaned out the Living Right room in Masiphumelele and Emily Aaserod-Oosthuizen assisted with packing grocery parcels that had been very kindly donated by a variety of donors throughout the day.

Thank you to all who served Living Hope for Mandela Day. Your 67 minutes has left a lasting impression.

A great mystery, a great wonder
That has filled the heavens and the earth.

Those that believe in Him today shall not be judged
May you be glorified Lord for eternity.

But that is not all! We will also use this opportunity to launch a book entitled:” Faces of Hope”, that was written by Allen Allnoch, a volunteer from the US that worked at Living Hope. This book features the stories of the people who have been touched and changed by the work that Living Hope is doing in the communities we serve. It is a beautiful book and will be on sale at the concert too.

So bring your friends and your family along on 26th April at 6.30pm to Brentwood Baptist, TN For more info about the night of worship, please email

*The concert is a non ticketed event so there is no charge for entrance, however, as it is a benefit concert, we appeal to all to open their hearts and give towards Living Hope in a generous way. Our focus on the night will be to raise funds for our DAD program which allows Life Skills Educators to work with children and teens in impoverished and challenging home-circumstances to bring hope and to show God’s love. Through the various programs offered, the children have a place to feel at home and loved, while learning about sexual abstinence and other lifestyle issues. The program also includes parenting classes extending Living Hope’s influence into the home.
