John Bourisseau, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA
I had the opportunity to tour with Deon in 2003.
The experience was life changing. Deon introduced us to a number of opportunities to support local efforts, as well as, introducing us to the magnificence of the South African countryside and culture.
We chose to support a student at Nederburg School in Paarl. Our family all got involved, and we continue to be in contact, and assist him, as he continues to try and find work as a young adult.
Last year, on a return trip to SA, my son and I were able meet and talk with our student–a very powerful experience.
We are thankful to Deon for creating this opportunity of hope for our family and for a young man in Paarl.
