Such beautiful words from special friendsA tribute to Joel de Oliviera by Mark and Virginia Haupt:
Joel lived a life worthy of the calling. Ephesians 4:1
We knew Joel’s wife and in-laws even before we met this handsome and outstanding young man.
We came to know Joel while we were Pastor and Principal respectively of Emmanuel Private School. At that stage he was the Administrator of Three Rivers Christian Academy. Together we were a part of the A.C.E. family in South Africa, and thus we had many opportunities to serve together. From the AASC, and travelling around the country with the Educator’s Convention teams, and the Administrators Seminars, to visiting other A.C.E. schools as ministry representatives. Mark and Joel spent many hours together in all of these areas of the ministry.
Whenever we had the opportunity to visit the school in Vereeniging, Joel would show us around the school with excitement and joy. It was always so uplifting and encouraging to see God’s handiwork in the school and the life of those like Joel who were in leadership there. We so valued his friendship and his personal interest in our lives. He was an asset to the community and to us. Many times we would deliberate and discuss issues related to the schools and Joel was ready with inspiring and wise words which testified to his close relationship with the Lord.
He will be sorely missed and we cannot believe that Joel has beat us to the finish line so early in his life. He has left behind a beautiful and worthy legacy in his family and the school.
To his precious wife, Mercedes and his daughters, Anushka and Micaela, our sincere prayers for you for peace and comfort at this hard time. ... See MoreSee Less
Rest in peace Mr D
