What our residents have to say

My name is Boipelo

The Lord placed me in Bloemfontein in 2015 to study at the Central University of Technology Free State, not knowing where I was going to stay. Accommodation was a struggle but the Lord never ceases to amaze me, He is faithful at all times. I had a cousin who lived in Bloemfontein and referred me to The YW. I thank God for keeping me at The YW. Living here has taught me so many things. It taught me how to live with people and accept them the way they are, to be responsible and also it gave me the platform to proclaim the gospel through music, which I thank God for.  

My name is Ntombifuthi
I was raised by my two wonderful parents who have been protective in my upbringing but all for a good cause.
I am privileged to be studying at the Central University of Technology of Free State (CUT) and to live at the Christian Residences for Young Women Bloemfontein (The YW). At The YW I live in a beautiful single room which I enjoy to the fullest. The YW is a wonderful place with everything a student needs in accommodation and more. There is no accommodation like The YW in Bloemfontein, it is one of a kind. It has the best security.All things are provided: from the stove to the bed and fridge. I really enjoy staying at The YW and as a Christian I am blessed because my spirituality is maintained.

You’re the enemy of the heart

Often we think people fool us
So blind and stubborn we are
All comfortable and settled without knowing
Is it because we are shallow?
Or just signs of immaturity?
Actually no 
Empty promises we get
Planned destiny with no future  

So dumb are we to believe it
So self-centred are we to be proud
With no worth we fall for it

Actually if we search deeper we are the enemies
We are the fools 
The back stabbers of our heart
So fooled by the mind that we don't even notice

Innocent is our little hearts 
Tortured by the greedy stubborn mind
Thinking man is our worst enemy
If only the heart knew it was an organ
Maybe the world and our lives could be better
