The Power of Good News ~ By Riaan Viljoen A year ago I went on Outreach to Zambia with a team from my church. One day we went to do evangelism on the streets. We went out excited and tried to talk to a lot of people we saw in the market place. However, although the people seemed polite, there was no real openness to the gospel. Everyone we spoke to either already knew God or said only what they thought we wanted to hear. There had been many missionaries to this area in the past and it seemed like people only “played along” in order to get something. At the end of the day we were discouraged, not really having seen any impact. The next day, having prayed for strategy, we went out again, but […]
After 5 years of putting up In the Gap Clothing stalls at markets and Festivals all over the country, I have had my fair share of Festival Fun. And I still love going….uhm…most of the time. Here are my reasons why I love South African Festivals: 1. A Great Family Outing South African Festivals really have something for everyone. Great food stalls for dad, craft market for mom and crazy rides and fun activities for the kids. I love watching families come for the day, pushing the pram, talking and having fun. And my favourite Family Festival would have to be the Strawberry Festival, yearly at the Redberry Farm in George. Great activities for the family from picking your own strawberries to getting lost in a maze. 2. Pancakes Yes. Really! I don’t what makes market pancakes […]
How does Screenprinting work? About two years ago, when my husband and I started this business, Screenprinting was a foreign idea to me. I looked at all the equipment that we brought home and listened to the processes with a blank look and wondered how I would ever be able to master this technique in our business. Now a year later I am amazed at what I’ve learned along the way and very grateful to a lot of people and resources that have helped get us this far… With that in mind I would like to share with you the basics of our screen printing process and maybe point you to some resources that have helped me get started! 1. Get an idea…. My husband had a dream about printing Christian T-shirts and now also get most of […]
To say that www.inthegapclothing.co.za has had a major overhaul feels a bit like an understatement. After weeks of sweat, tears and maaaaany cups of coffee, juggling plugins, pages, photos (and a very energetic one year old in the mix) paid off, and we are launching our NEW website!! Why New, you ask? Well apart from the fact that I do get bored quickly 😉 our new website has better functionality: * We now accept credit card /debit card payments through PayFast * Online Shop is quickly accessible * New professional Product photos. * Share buttons allow you to quickly share the items you like on Facebook or Pinterest. Of course we always welcome feedback, so take a moment and tell us what do you think of the new website or share it with friends so […]
We left early from the Strawberry Festival in George. We had a long road ahead of us, and did not want to get there too late. Just before 1 in the morning we arrived at a friend’s house in Bloemfontein where we could get some sleep before continuing our journey the next day. Potchefstroom is far from Mossel Bay! The next day we were on the road again bright and early and just in time for registration and setting up our stall, we arrived at the Festival Grounds in Potchefstroom. It was a hot day and our winter clothes soon got shed as we embraced the Summer. Some friendly staff directed us to our space where we could set up stall. But when we got there, there was no place set out for us. We asked around, […]
Why do people wear Christian T-shirts or clothing with Bible verses, showing the world they are Christians? Why are Religious and Christian T-shirts and clothing becoming more popular and widespread in many cultures around the world? Why do we promote Christian Clothing? Our foundation, as always, is to go back to what Jesus said: “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” – Matt 5:14-15 and “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely […]
What are we all about?? Well, it all started with a dream. When my husband 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) the opportunity came to start our Christian Clothing Company and countless details fell into place within a matter of weeks. We were amazed at our King, knowing that this step and the timing was from Him. In the Gap Clothing is situated in Mossel Bay, South Africa, and we seek to design and distribute quality Christian clothing aimed at promoting Kingdom life.
