1. “About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”

2.  Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. 

3. Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 

4.  So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.”

5. “AND ANYONE who WELCOMES a LITTLE CHILD like THIS on my behalf is WELCOMING ME. “  

Matthew 18 

Precious Blessings

Place of safety for babies and toddlers

Who we are

Precious Blessings Home in Die Wilgers, Pretoria is the home of George and Heidi Versfeld.

Their passion is fired by the injustices of the world. Their extraordinary sacrifice of self is evident in their daily lives. Precious Blessings Home is a place filled with love where touch doesn’t hurt.


They have invested their lives in the needs of deserted and abused children since 2004.

It is a place where children experience that they were born to be blessed by tender care, love and prayers.

Our story

George & Heidi celebrate 32 yrs of marriage already. In the early years infertility thwarted their parenthood dream.

When they abandoned their efforts to have a biological child, they were blessed by the birth of twin daughters and later with one more daughter.

After that, fostering and adoption became the result of their insatiable desire to restore young lives.

Since 2004, more than 16 children from South Africa & Ghana have been in their care.  


Today, George and Heidi, together with their own 3 daughters care for their own 2 adopted sons and other children in their care. Days & nights are dedicated to feeding, nursing and investing in the healthy development of these children.

They guard each child’s identity by encouraging individualism. They make life happen.

This couple exudes empathy, patience & perseverance in the midst of tough routines. They instill trust in the children. Gradually normal behavior & relationships are learned & healthy self- esteem & identity blossoms.
