Our director, Kris Freudenthal, moved to South Africa in 2016 following the prompting of the Lord. She has served in Jeffreys Bay through a ministry called Victory4All since 2018. During that time, God began to remind her of a name He gave her as a child "mother to thousands," and how His heart is for the most vulnerable: the children. So, in 2021, she took a leap of faith and opened a home, with the help of a partner baby home in Port Elizabeth, to offer a safe place for babies in waiting (while continuing to work with primary school aged children through V4A). This home was offered to her for use by Jessica and Gideon Porter on their lovely farm in Loerie, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
Abba's House received its first placement in early June of 2022, nine months after starting the process for approval. God's timing is beautiful! In March 2023, Abba's House will open its second baby home, nicknamed "Grace House" on the same farm as our first home. This will allow us to help up to 12 babies at a time in our area.
