October 2021 Monthly Focus

Mission Focus | South Africa

Missionaries | David and Julie Yngsdal



  1. Many visitors travel to South Africa to see wild animals, like elephants, rhinoceroses, cheetahs, lions, zebras, hippopotamuses, and giraffes.

  2. South Africa is called the “Rainbow Nation” because its citizens come from many different countries and cultures. Mr. and Mrs. Yngsdal [INGS-dahl] love the people in South Africa.

  3. One of Durban’s best-loved dishes is a fast food called “Bunny Chow” or “Bunny.” It’s a hollowed-out loaf of white bread, filled with curry, chicken, lamb, or beef. The top looks like a bunny tail.

  4. The Yngsdals helped refugees during the pandemic by providing food to hundreds of families. Send Relief helped provide the food for families.

  5. The Yngsdals are happy to help refugee families in different ways, such as giving medicine to someone who is sick and praying for them.


  • Pray that people in South Africa who learn about Jesus will tell others about Jesus.

  • Pray that Mr. and Mrs. Yngsdal will be able to meet more people so they can tell them about Jesus.

  • Pray for the people in South Africa who are from other countries.

  • Pray that churches in America will help churches in South Africa.

  • Pray for Mr. and Mrs. Yngsdal’s four adult children who now live in America.


David and Julie Yngsdal are missionaries in Durban, South Africa. South Africa is a beautiful country with beaches, mountains, deserts, and plains. The city of Durban has nearly four million people. The Zulu people are the largest tribe in South Africa. Durban is home to many refugees that the Yngsdals serve. Because of the mixture of people from other countries, the Yngsdals are able to enjoy many interesting foods in South Africa.

Each day brings new surprises for the Yngsdals and opportunities to tell people about Jesus. One day a week, they teach an outdoor Bible study for hair stylists. They helped to start a sewing class to teach job skills and the Bible. Mr. and Mrs. Yngsdal also help widows and orphans with food and school fees. The Yngsdals focus on teaching refugees who love Jesus more about the Bible and how to live like Jesus.
