Many people speak of the “magic” that exists here at New Life – the tangible sense of community, the support and love and care that weaves out amongst us and that is the fabric that supports the deep healing and transformation that we witness weekly. Yet, all of these elements rest on the bed rock of one thing: Johan’s vision. We are because of him. Because of his vision, his generosity, his passion and his kindness – we are made possible.
Johan was a dream builder and we inhabit the dream he built. He was also a fire lighter, sensing the latent potentials that exist within each of us and urging us all on to burn more brightly. Today our hearts are heavy with your loss but what is undeniable is that your sparks have lit fires all around the world. And those fires will continue to burn as a testament to a man who made it possible. We miss you and we love you and we’ll carry on your vision as best we can.
