Every day more than 200 street people used to attend our street church, which was held underneath the bridge next to the campanile in Port Elizabeth. For six years I preached to them, listened to their sad and sorry stories and prayed with them. I personally fed them and clothed them. I visited them at their secret hide-outs on cold winter nights and gave them blankets. I heard them silently singing around little street fires.

Abrama: Iemand het eenkeer gese die lewe is 'n lied, maar jy moet jou eie een skryf - Nou ek reken Jean du Plessis, my gas vandag, het hierdie gedagte tot dusver pragtig uitgeleef. Jean, jy is gebore en getoe in Khorixas, Namibie.

Jean: Ja, Abrama, my pa was die skoolhoof van Damara skool in Khorixas - 'n skool net vir swartmense, so ek kon nie eers by hom skoolgaan nie. Daar was slegs 500 blanke mense in Khorixas.

Many South Africans arrive in Australia and live well and prosper, but unfortunately some immigration experiences are not smooth sailing, and some people face immense difficulties or traumatic incidents in a country where they have little support as a result of having

recently relocated. Since being contacted by Mark Elsing (see Never Give Up, Article 1502), and with an increase in people being made redundant, Sabona has been called on to assist more and more Southern Africans living in Australia.

“When things go belly-up, we can turn things around and we can climb every mountain. Never, ever give up. There is always another way.” This is the advice from Mark Elsing, who faced seemingly insurmountable challenges in his immigration journey, but has emerged determined to assist others. I am in awe of this man's energy and inner motivation. It is inconceivable that only nine months ago he could not see the path ahead and was willing to end his life. “I am no longer embarrassed to tell people what happened because of the positive outcome. Sometimes you just have to get out there and show you can overcome obstacles,” he says.
