Louis & Amber O'Tool
ABOUT US Louis and Amber have been faithfully serving in Welkom, South Africa since 2008. They have 3 children, Meredith, Drake and Travis. They spent about 6 years running, building, and establishing children's homes in Welkom to care for orphaned and abandoned children. The passion of Louis and Amber to make disciples of Jesus led to a partnership with a local church. In 2014 God led the O'Tools to transition from full-time children's home ministry to discipleship work with young people in the community at large. In partnership with Pastor Joshua Bolaji and the Heffners, Louis and Amber began focusing on reaching and discipling youth from all over the city of Welkom by establishing Unashamed Youth Ministries and Thirst Discipleship.
