Wayne and Susan Royce

South Africa

God has called the Royces to plant churches in the townships of Cape Town, South Africa with the Xhosa-speaking people. "Simanyene" means "together we are one" and that is true of the churches that now exist in the township of Strand, Mfuleni and the newest church plant in Happy Valley. It is the goal to raise up these churches to be lights in their communities with strong leadership, a love for one another and men and women trained in the Word of God.

In 2014, the Royce's began the Simanyene Center for the Disabled as a day program to help those children and young adults with disabilities in the township. What started with just three young adults now helps 21 students.

The Royce's opened the Simanyene Residential Home in 2019, after noticing that some students who attended the Simanyene Center needed more care than was offered by the day program. The home serves as a full-time residential home for 12 children and young adults with disabilities, who come from neglected homes or who are high risk and vulnerable.

It is the Royces' desire to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to establish churches to be a light to the future generations.
