FOR HE CHOSE US IN HIM BEFORE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD TO BE HOLY AND BLAMELESS IN HIS SIGHT
IN LOVE HE PREDESTINED US TO BE ADOPTED AS HIS SONS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS PLEASURE AND WILL- TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORIOUS GRACE
WHICH HE HAS FREELY GIVEN US IN THE ONE HE LOVES.
Ephesians 1:4-6

Pumpkin Ministries Durbanville, South Africa - a great place to find out more about fostering and adoption.

These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crises and welcome them unconditionally into our caring home.
The goal of Pumpkin Ministries is to provide temporary care for children with the ultimate aim of reuniting them with their biological family or while
finding an adoptive family for those whom reunification is not an option.

Towards this goal we provide a stable family environment that shows love to all children who are going through a challenging time. The children in
our care have been removed from their families because of alleged neglect or abuse. They are placed in Pumpkin Ministries, to be loved, and to be
in a supportive home environment. The Children are in the legal care of  the South African Government however, like every other child, they need a
family to care for them - Pumpkin Ministries is the family that unconditionally offers the care.

Our children range from  new born  babies to teenagers. Those who have been abandoned, all the broken and orphaned have a home with us.
All are treated as one of our children. Pumpkin Ministries brings hope, healing and restoration to lives  through the love that Jesus himself
demonstrates in His Word.

                          Making A Difference In A Child's Life

Our Mission

We started Pumpkin Ministries to make a difference to abandoned broken children.To have the Children living in our home and being part of a true family. Our hearts mission is to bring about change in the community in which we live and for the larger community to embrace children, open up their hearts, homes and lives for children to be fostered and even adopted into loving caring homes.


Our mission is to empower and inform people of the process of fostering and adoption. Fostering and adoption has been  made out to be long , tedious with a load of red tape.


Louise and I want to inform  people of the process, what needs to be done, the right forms to fill in and generally help and assist people that might be thinking of Fostering or adopting.
