Johan and Marina Labuschagne

Johan and Marina Labuschagne met and fell deeply in love and married in 2007. One year later, they both fell even deeper in love with Jesus. They were commissioned into their calling from Mathew 28:19 “Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

God sovereignly brought them back to Tbilisi, the capitol city of Georgia in 2009, where their vision and passion to minister to children became a reality with the Kurdish street children. Johan has in the interim completed his pastorate studies, and has been ordained. They are directors for Spokane Healing Rooms Ministry in Georgia and have trained interested groups across denominational lines in this. They have represented Georgia at the 4/14 window children’s conferences in Singapore & New York. They are also strategic outreach partners with VFTCI, an International children’s ministry.

They are very passionate about unity within the body of Christ and desire for believers to become effective prayer warriors and disciples of Christ. They consistently encourage others through scripture, training, prayer, support and life challenges. They have been on the leadership team of the International church of Tbilisi, 2009-2014 and continue to minister tirelessly to children and adults alike; be it on the street, in the villages, within the church, in the healing rooms, in hospitals and successfully utilize various social mediums on the internet as a means of outreach!

Their God-given vision to develop a piece of property in Kakheti region of Georgia, has become a reality in June 2015! It will be a place that cultivates self-sustainability, education and love; reaching out to children, their families, the community and those in ministry and will become a Holy Spirit life-force to the glory and honour of Jesus and our Heavenly Father within the village community and region.

Veronica Dippenaar

They are joined by Veronica Dippenaar who was commissioned by God with Genesis 12.1 The LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.”

At His bidding, she completed some basic therapeutic massage & foot care courses before going on early retirement from her secular job in May 2007. Two weeks later, Veronica took the leap of faith & travelled to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, her first directive abroad. Since then she has been directed by Holy Spirit to different places abroad and at times has remained in South Africa. Training volunteers in SA and abroad to do foot care, therapeutic massage and play therapy to strengthen muscles for the elderly or handi-capped has been a challenge she has enjoyed tremendously!

Her passion is Intercession and to see individuals and communities become transformed unto the likeness of Christ through ministering unto our Lord, sustained intercession and the power of His Holy Spirit! Other passions are to love and evangelize the lost and to lovingly encourage the body of Christ to appropriate the unconditional love and abundant life Jesus came to give us in John 10.10, by believing, obeying & proclaiming His Living Word in every given situation!

Since 2013, God has re-directed her to Tbilisi, Georgia to minister alongside missionaries Johan & Marina Labuschagne. She returned again in 2014 and since May 2015 has joined them permanently. She will be living with and ministering alongside them in Lagodekhi, Kakheti region, in the village of Apeni.

Veronica has 3 married children, who each have an equally precious spouse and 3 grand daughters in SA. She has the joy of her children’s blessing in her calling!
