Wow… not sure about you but you’ve heard the saying “time flies when you having fun”. 6 months into 2022 and no surprise for us to confirm and say God is good!!! We are constantly aware of the leading of the Holy Spirit and to see how His work unfolds around us is such a privilege. We love what we do and are learning all the time. People are incredible teachers, we can learn so much from interaction with folk from all walks of life. To keep you up to date on where we are
In the last 3 months we have been able to give out 326 parcels within the Edenvale, Boksburg, Kempton areas as well as 51 parcels to families in Tembisa. We are thankful for donations of chicken that enabled us to included hearty homemade soup in our parcels as well as nice fresh produce. Additional food hampers were also handed out to Edenvale child welfare, Hospice, Harvest ministries towards their winter bible school programme. What a privilege it was to be able to take a very large hamper through to Hillbrow to a lady who cooks and feeds street people as well as taken in 6 orphans t o her home, we are planning to support this cause on a regular basis.
