“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” – Philippians 1:21
When Hannelie and her family left their comfortable home in South Africa to serve on the front lines in Afghanistan, they knew the risks. But they wouldn’t deny God’s call. This video retells her family’s story of faithfulness and sacrifice amid those hostile to Christ.
The wife and mother of the three South Africans killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan has no regrets about moving her family to that country. The husband Werner and two teenage kids Jean-Pierre and Rode Groenewald were shot dead at their home in Kabul. Their memorial service and funeral was held on in Pretoria.
