In 2007 Soul Action SA founders, Phil and Rachel Bowyer, left their careers, family and home in the UK and arrived in Durban with their son Zac, only to be told by God to do “nothing.”  Eventually it became clear that God meant “nothing…new,” which is when they began to visit and record details of existing work with the poor in South Africa.  Starting in the municipality of eThekwini – an area covering 2,292 sq km with a population of 3.5 million people – they have met and ‘mapped’ over 150 initiatives addressing poverty.

In the process Phil and Rachel have build some meaningful relationships, learnt about the variety of work Christians are involved in throughout the municipality, and are beginning to understand some of the difficulties and frustrations they, and the people they serve, face.
