Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures; And that HE WAS BURIED, and that HE ROSE AGAIN the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15 King James Version - KJV)
WELCOME TO OUR SPIRITUAL TRAIN!!!
What was once established almost 100 years ago in South Africa then ravished, destroyed and forgotten for almost 30 years has now been rescued, resurrected and revived by a group of individuals. RailHope South Africa
Pastor Arul Raj (RailHope India) has been praying for 12 years for the revival of RailHope South Africa. God finally, in His own time, answered his prayer and arranged for the paths of Charity Schutte (South Africa) and Pastor Arul Raj to intersect.
This divine orchestration of connections brought other spiritually driven and gifted followers of Christ together. Hazel Govender(Construction Industry), Thandi Sabelo (Manager from Transnet Port Terminals), Peter Govender (Pastor and Manager at Transnet Freight Rail) and Charity Schutte (Manager at Transnet Freight Rail) formed the RailHope South Africa Committee on the 1st June 2016 and commenced the process to revive RailHope South Africa.
We have returned to the fold of The IRM (International Railway Mission) who is an Inter-denominational federation comprising of 16 countries which brings the Gospel to the workplace
We place our Faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and ask Him to take control of this train as those on board head out to the greatest and most fulling life they could ever imagine.
