Since January 1999, my life has been connected to Beth Uriel, “House of Light” (www.bethuriel.co.za) in one way or another. A journey of discovery that started when I was in college turned into a major life change in April 2003 when I moved to South Africa full time to serve the Home as a “missionary social worker”. Finding myself in the deep end very quickly, I took over managing the Beth Uriel in 2004 after long time servant and founder, Angela La Grange, went into retirement. With a deep belief in the transforming power of God, Beth Uriel, “House of Light”, aims to provide young men from impoverished communities the chance to pursue meaningful, independent lives through a supportive living environment, connections to educational opportunities and training in life skills. We have 26 beds in the home and a waiting list that is normally more than ten people long as we are currently the only residential facility in Cape Town serving the over 18 population.
