Jacques Papenfus, CEO and founder of Mighty Godly Servants Recovery Centre (MGS) has overcome many hardships and struggles in life, with the earliest and biggest, when at the age of 9 years old, he lost his whole family during a car accident.
By the grace of God business entities arose to cater for the lack in skills of the residents. Booming from an initial soup kitchen concept, there exist a few well known business entities to facilitate skills development for members completing their recovery program.
Later in life, during his own struggle of addiction, he realized the need for other peoples’ misfortune, and he started giving his energy and all he has to help the next person in line. This humble act made Jacques to help himself to heal and realized his passion to help other people with trauma.
2019, Moeggesukkel was extended to a recovery leg for addiction and registered a NGO called Mighty Godly Servants Recovery Centre. Committed to help people with addiction through an integrated life skills upliftment program, MGS is the experience of New Life!
In the event to help people on the street, Jacques had to obtain a job. This enabled him to rent a house where he was able to accommodate street people with needs. This led to the establishment of Moeggesukkel in 2012. Humble beginnings earned Moeggesukkel the household name in Centurion to help people of the street to again believe in themselves and have hope for the future.
To further enhance community integration, possibilities of a half way house can support members who successfully complete the recovery program and acquire a reputable job. The half way house supports individuals in financial management, counselling and spiritual growth during their engagement in their jobs.
