Yvonne Engelke


I am married to David and we are blessed with two daughters, Monica born in 1992 (recently qualified as a teacher and will be teaching grade 4’s at Durbanville Primary as from 2015) and Carmen born 1995 (Studying tourism at CPUT). I grew up in the Southern Suburbs and attended the Methodist Church in Claremont. My granny was the Sunday school superintendent and my mom was a Sunday school teacher for many years. We joined DMC as members in 1995. On the 2nd April 2006, I joined the staff at DMC as the receptionist. When Lorraine, our previous secretary, passed away suddenly in June 2010, I was offered the position as secretary. It is a blessing to serve the congregation here at DMC. I feel really privileged that God has entrusted me with this position.
