Meet the Family | In the Gap Clothing

Wondering about us or what In the Gap Clothing is all about? Well, it all started with a dream. When Riaan awoke one morning with several designs still in his mind, he realized that the dream of printing Christian t shirts was from God. More than a year later (in God’s perfect time) in 2010, when the opportunity came across his path to purchase screen-printing equipment,  Riaan and Elmari prayed about it again, and felt that the time was right to start. The confirmation was definite when countless details fell into place within a matter of weeks. They were amazed at their King, knowing that this step was from Him. For the next few years, Elmari learnt Corel Draw from scratch, Riaan printed T shirts in the evenings after coming home from a Real Estate Business where […]

Stop worrying today (and do this instead…)

Anxiety and worry are some of the greatest signs of our times but God tells us not to worry, not to be anxious and not to be afraid. This is possible! The feeling of anxiousness or worry might sometimes overwhelm us and it helps to have some practical tools to know what to do when this happens. Philippians 4 gives us these clear steps to deal with anxiety. 1. Stop Philippians 4:6 declares “Do not be anxious about anything.” Let’s just stop there. God is commanding us not to do something. Remember: He is a good God. He knows what we can handle, what we can do and what we can’t. If He tells us not to do something, it is because He knows we are able to choose not be anxious. Practically, for me, […]

Lets Talk about Jesus street ministry van and people

Lets talk about Jesus – Testimony

Why we do what we do From the start, one of our main reasons for making Christian Clothing, has been to give believers a tool for sharing the Good News about Jesus with a lost and dying world.  Our church has recently started a street ministry and we printed some striking “Let’s talk about Jesus” hoodies and T-shirts to spark some conversations. This is a beautiful testimony from a friend of ours, about wearing her Hoodie. So, Lets talk about Jesus! “This morning I had breakfast with a friend at a coffee shop in Plattekloof. I was wearing my “Let’s talk about Jesus” street ministry hoody (as the one in the pic). We really had a good time speaking about Jesus, speaking into each other’s lives and praying. When we were about to leave, our […]

Top 7 Bible study hacks to help you get focused

I love reading and studying the Bible, but if I’m honest, many times, I find it hard to get into or really concentrate on it. There may be various reasons for my wandering thoughts, but over the years I have found certain Bible Study hacks, that have made it easier to really focus. And maybe they can help you too. Without further ado, let me share my top 7 Bible Study hacks: 1. Read often One of my favourite sayings is: “Bible Reading is like drinking Coke”. I don’t know about you, but for me, if I stop drinking coke for a few weeks, my craving for it also disappears and I can easily go months without it. But as soon as I drink it once or twice, it’s like my palate suddenly discovers it […]

Hole in the wall looking at three crosses

What’s in a name? The reason we are “In the Gap Clothing”

It has happened a few times that people confuse us with another clothing brand called “GAP Clothing”, which always makes me smile. Our names are similar, but the thought behind it is very different. “In the gap” has become a somewhat popular Christian term, usually connected with prayer and intercession. Someone might say; “I feel like we need to stand in the gap for so-and-so”, meaning that we need to pray for that person. The Origin The idea comes from times when a city’s wall was its protection from enemies. Of course if there was a hole or a gap in the wall, the city would be vulnerable. Someone who would be willing to “stand in the gap” of that wall would be willing to take the enemies’ blows to protect those inside. The idea […]

Be Strong and Courageous Christian Kids T shirt and mens t shirt - father and son on beach

3 Things I have learned about being courageous in these crazy times we live in…

Since the roller coaster of Covid and lockdown began 4 months ago, I felt many fears that I have been unaware of, starting to surface. Like when you shake a coke bottle and all the bubbles start to rise to the top. They form themselves into “What ifs” in my mind. And dwelling on these “what ifs” become overwhelming and paralysing. I am sure, that like me, you also might need some extra courage to face the world in these extraordinary times we are living in. So, I want to share with you 3 things that I have learned about being courageous. 1. Do it afraid It’s always interesting to me that when God spoke to Joshua in this famous verse, that He actually issued a command: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and […]

In the Gap Clothing – Our Lockdown Testimony

We are at Day #131 of Lockdown in South Africa, and as we have started to adjust to the new normal and going about our lives again I reflected on how faithful God has been in this journey. As a family, working from home,  we have been pouring our lives into In the Gap Clothing for the last 9 years seeing God grow His Kingdom and spreading the Word through Christian Clothing. As of last year, we were able to employ 3 others (besides my husband and I) to help with all the ins and outs of the business. Covid happened… In the beginning of 2020, when Riaan started reading up on the news of a new sickness spreading in Wuhan, China, I was oblivious, thinking that down here in the Southern point of Africa, […]
