In the heart of TRINICY's global mentorship community, powerful stories of connection and transformation unfold, showcasing the profound impact of Christ-centered relationships.
TRINICY MENTORSHIP: BRIDGING LIVES
Meet Thabelo, a mentee from South Africa, whose journey with TRINICY transcended beyond mentorship. Recently, Thabelo celebrated a joyous milestone – her wedding. What made this occasion even more special was the presence of her mentor, Samantha Botha, alongside a dear friend and fellow mentee, Retang.
Samantha, Retang, and Thabelo's shared experience in TRINICY not only fostered mentor-mentee relationships but forged bonds that extend to life's significant moments. Thabelo's wedding became a testament to the enduring connections formed within the program.
This story reflects the essence of TRINICY – a platform where mentorship is not just a temporary alliance but a foundation for lifelong relationships. The common thread weaving these connections together is Christ, the unifying force that glues mentors and mentees across the globe.
In TRINICY, the impact of mentorship reaches beyond geographical boundaries, creating a community where milestones are shared, and lives are intertwined. As we celebrate Thabelo's wedding, we recognize that this is just one of many stories echoing the transformative power of Christ-centered mentorship within the TRINICY family.
IN THABELO'S OWN WORDS
I am Thabelo also known as Thabie from South Africa. I joined TRINICY in 2020 while I was still a student on campus. In the past few years as a mentee, I have been mentored by Samantha, Robin, and Julie.
I spent most of 2023 on a break in order to prepare and plan for my wedding. I recently got married to Reginald, who has been a friend of mine from university. Reginald was the one who witnessed the gospel to me before salvation. His desire to marry me was more evident from November 2022 when he pursued me. on July 1st 2022, he asked me to marry him and I said "Yes". We both didn't want to be engaged for a long time.
Our wedding day was the most joyful day of my life.
We then planned our wedding to be on the 16th of December 2023. Our wedding day was the most joyful day of my life. I had Samantha (my former mentor) as one of our wedding guests. Retang, who is still part of TRINICY, was my maid of honor. The most wonderful part of my wedding was to see our families and friends being exposed to sound teaching, something my husband and I have been praying for.

FELLOW MENTEE ATTENDS AS MAID OF HONOR
Retang, a fellow Mentee in the mentorship program, had this to say about the event:
"Samantha, Thabie, and I had the best time ever. Our time together was fulfilling. I thank God for such lovely Christian women. We're praying for a second installment as soon as God allows it, and we're trusting that one day we'll fly to the U.S. to join the meetings that side!"
After the wedding, I moved from Johannesburg to follow my husband in Limpopo, where I will be serving alongside my husband. I am so thankful to the Lord for this wonderful gift of marriage. Please continue to pray for Reginald and I as we build our home together that we may do all things for the glory of God.
