Hi everyone,

We end the year on a very positive note, being aware that we do not operate in our own wisdom and strength.  We are extremely grateful to all who have stood by us throughout  2023. God’s favour and faithfulness have been evident every step of the way.

Psalm 107:1-3

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever

Be living… not existing
Thank you!
Those words cannot capture how we feel about the kindness and generosity we have received. Thank you for believing in us. Without you this would not be possible.
From bread, cakes, perishable and non perishable food, toiletries,  eft deposits, clothing… you name it. We have been overwhelmed!

Homeless Outreach – 21 October 2023

What an incredible day. When you give of yourself you end up the one receiving!

Edenvale Baptist Church hosted this day on their premises where those living on the streets came and were spoilt rotten. They were treated to a haircut and shave, toiletry pack, updated CV, cooked lunch , could choose clothing from our pre-loved clothing stand and were loved on with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many were touched by this Kindness and I would like to commend EBC for organising such a special event.

This year we assisted 75 households with lovely, large food hampers. All school going children were given a backpack and basic stationary to get them started  for the new school year, good luck learners!

We had 5 separate parties with yummy eats and gifts, it was a fun time and many experienced joy and laughter.
