Lofdal Restoration Centre

We have been closely involved with the Lofdal Restoration Centre since February-March 2015. The Centre is also known as P.A.D.A – the Prevention of Drug and Alcohol Abuse programme. Our ministry comes in the form of counselling and deliverance – something we had not anticipated when we moved from Johannesburg in September 2014. We trusted the Lord to open doors for us here in the Western Cape as He had promised and it is amazing how He has done just that.

Almost ten years ago, Pastor Ulrich Strauss was delivered from a life of drugs and gangsterism and the Lord gave him a vision of a rehabilitation centre to restore the lives of those caught in the bondage of drugs, alcohol, gangsterism and prostitution. Under the wing of Lofdal Ministries, the restoration centre was started and since then has impacted the lives of thousands, both directly and indirectly. A major feature of the programme is its system of several support groups, affording family, friends and the ex-addict a means of remaining clean.

Men of all ages desperate to be freed from addiction attend the centre and are taught the Word of God and life skills, and work on the vegetable farm and in the workshops on the premises. Their lives are turned around as they discover their true identity and are delivered from past bondages.
