Maude Isabel Viljoen (Fowler)

The life and home call of Maude

Maude was born 28th August 1949, in South Africa. Married to Dale on 19th November 1977 in Cape Town, Maude gave birth to and lovingly raised three robust sons: Stephen (24th July), Peter (16th December), and Luke (11th March).

Maude was a faithful wife for almost 30 years, 28 of which were spent ministering in Japan. During her four and a half year struggle with breast cancer, Maude thought and studied a lot about the reality of heaven - and was able to bless those around her with her “excitement” of heaven. One week short of her 58th birthday (20th August 2007), Maude was “escorted” into the Presence of her Lord and Saviour whom she loves so much. We miss her!

Psalm 84:5

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."

Our desire is:

To walk with the Living God,
glorifying Him each day as we reveal
His love and grace.
