My name is Stella Smuts. I was raised on a farm outside a country town in South Africa. My parents were born-again and raised their children in the church. As a teenager, I had an experience with the Presence of the Lord and accepted Him into my life. From there I grew in relationship with Him. Born out of this relationship is the deep seated desire to serve the Lord and His people. Through the years, I have been involved in many aspects of church life and service.

During 2014, I was privileged to visit Namibia on 2 occasions, to attend the AFMIN On10 training institute. Namibia is a beautiful country and it's people are wonderful, friendly and love the Lord in a very deep way.
In September, the first graduation was held. What an experience! To the sounds of the Police Brass Band, 34 graduates filed into the building. The atmosphere was filled with excitement. There was a sense of great pride from family friends, and the AFMIN staff, as each graduate was called to the stage to receive their diplomas.
