Johan and Hessie van der Merwe

South Africa

Johan and Hessie van der Merwe were both born and raised in South Africa. They have been serving with HIM since the year 2000. The van der Merwe family lives on a farm in the Free State province in South Africa. Their farmhouse serves as a “home,” a place of rest for missionaries, and is also used for meetings and weekly prayer gatherings.

Johan and Hessie’s ministry involves a small congregation in the nearby town of Hobhouse. This Sotho congregation was established in 2008. Starting with a handful of children, the congregation has become a steadfast church family with members of all ages. Quite a number of people have gotten saved and now provide steadfast leadership to a growing congregation. An additional aspect of the van der Merwe’s work in Hobhouse is ministering to orphans. Johan and Hessie are grateful for God’s help as they work to make disciples in South Africa. Join them in their mission with your purchase of GC Coffee.
