What are our ministry focuses?
Our first ministry begins at home with our sons, Vincent and Kiran. We are privileged to be their first witnesses to who Jesus is and what His Word teaches.
The heart of our ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ is to share the Gospel with and to walk a path with people in their journey with God, teaching them how to share their faith with others.
Nicholas is on the pioneering team of a CCC ministry (called Digital Strategy) that uses technology to aid ministry and reach more people with the Gospel in South Africa.
Pravani is on the university ministry team in Pretoria, Gauteng which is aimed at reaching campuses all over the province. Her focus is on teaching at our evangelism trainings, staff development and discipling students on campus where possible.
How did we become missionaries?
Nicholas: I was invited to a prayer conference hosted by Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC). Here, I was introduced to CCC, a few staff, disciples and my wife. I joined CCC full-time in November 2008.
Pravani: In my final year of my study for my degree in Information Technology, I attended a CCC student leadership conference in Washington D.C. It was here that God confirmed His call on my life (using John 21:16-17) to serve Him through the ministry of CCC as a full-time missionary to reach students with the Gospel.
What challenges do we experience in our work?
Nicholas – Digital Strategy is still quite new in South Africa. Pioneering is hard work and we constantly need to refine our scope because of the immense size of our platform. The internet mission field offers endless needs and opportunities.
Pravani struggles with finding the balance between motherhood (being at home with our two small children (Vincent our toddler and Kiran our baby) and being on the field as a missionary. Most of her interactions are behind the scenes using phone calls, Skype, emails and meetings at home where possible.
What are our needs?
Will you consider supporting us in the following way:
