BAREFOOT CHURCH ESWATINI
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Acts 1:8 (NLT)
In 2013 we launched our first ever carepoint in partnership with Children’s Cup, located in Malindza, eSwatini. Through our carepoint we have been able to meet physical, mental and spiritual needs of many children in the community.
In 2016, we were able to acquire land and build a small facility that serves as a central hub for Barefoot Church in Malindza. This facility serves as a carepoint during the week and a place for church worship services on weekends.
Through our partnership with Children’s Cup and because of the continued generosity of our church, we are able to spread the good news to a community of people who are in desperate need of Jesus.
Only slightly smaller than New Jersey, Eswatini is bordered almost completely by South Africa, with a small portion of the country bordered by Mozambique. Nearly 40% of the population is under the age of 15. English and siSwati are the two official languages of Eswatini. It is estimated that about half of the population integrates Christian teachings with traditional ancestral worship.
Well over half of the population lives in poverty, and Eswatini has the highest HIV/AIDS infection rate in the world, causing 100,000 children to be orphaned (roughly 10% of the nation’s population). It is historically one of the most peaceful nations, and we believe it is positioned to be a place from where God will use people to influence the rest of southern Africa.

SPONSOR A CHILD
For over 7 years, we’ve worked with Children’s Cup to sponsor children in the community of Malindza where our church is based. These child sponsorships ensure that the spiritual, mental and physical needs of the children in our region are met. There are still many children that have not been sponsored.
‘With Jesus’ love at the root of it all, we want to see every child rescued from hopelessness, tragedy, and hardship. Every child deserves Hope. Every child deserves to dream. Every child deserves the chance to become a world-changer.’ –Children’s Cup 2020©
