November's News. Making a difference in the life of many!


                        


Dear Ones,           

We are excited to share the highlights of this month's events with you. Because of you love, interest, concern and faithful support we are changing the world and together making a big difference in the lives of many.What everybody needs is love and God’s love as revealed through Jesus and His finished work on the cross is the answer. Thank you so much for helping us to minister to people spiritually as well as physically. Jesus came to minister to the whole man.

GRACELIFE:

Here I, Rita, am teaching on Romans 10:9-10 bringing out how Christianity is not blind faith and sharing some of the historical facts and evidence of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus  Christ.
 

Here the elders of the church are laying hands on and praying for Emily, our campus pastor, before her  10 days mission trip to Albania. We are all looking forward to hearing  some wonderful testimonies!

Philip teaching on the “Letters to the Seven Churches”, the exhortations and the encouragement Jesus gave to the churches then and the parallel to our contemporary churches .
 
KIDS' CHURCH:

 The Children usually join us for a united time of worship, entering in wholeheartedly. It is a joy having them there with us watching them clapping, singing and rocking out to the music!
 

Our time with the kids usually goes very quickly as we have our story, question and answer time, memory and review and of course some fun games!
 


LIFE-GROUPS:

Here we are leading our LifeGoup in Nomzamo. It is one of the highlights of our week to get together with this precious group of people. Sadly we have from time to time (and again once this month) had to cancel one of our study times due to strikes and rioting in Nomzamo. But it makes us count our blessing for the times that we are able to get together, and want to redeem the time and opportunities we have.
 


SUPPLIES:
WEET-BIX:

We collected and distributed 14 boxes of Weet-Bix! -To work for the company you must be athletic! :)
 
MILK:

We also collected and distributed 100 liters of milk. We than all the companies that assist us!
 
S. A. HARVESTER:

We are also very thankful for SA Harvesters  who have now committed to assist on a weekly basis!

SHOPPING:

Philip shopping for the Angels Kitchen in Sir Lowry’s Pass –staples & (see below) chicken soup bones!
 


WOOLWORTHS:


PIZZA BASES AND BREAD:

We are very grateful for the tremendous blessing the bread and pizza bases are in feeding so many. At times there has been such an abundance that we have had to make two trips. :)


Sunshine Kids Sir Lowry’s Pass! The kids always love to help and are very eager to get to carry something. What is donated here not only goes for the children but some especially needy families as well.
 
BRIEF GLIMPSE OF A FEW KITCHENS:
ANGEL'S KITCHEN:



The Angels’ Kitchen feeds in two places daily. First by Jessica’s house where the food is cooked. Once the cooking and feeding is done there her and her helpers load the 2nd pot of food in a wheelbarrow and go up by the train tracks which is a very poor and often neglected area because it is a bit remote.
They feed approximately 100 people a day which includes breakfast for approx. 20 kids before school.
 
MILA'S KITCHEN:


GORDON'S BAY BEACH CLEAN-UP:

We did a big clean-up of Gordon’s Bay beach together with all the available members of the Lions’ Club.
 
CONFERENCE:

We also had the privilege of attending a conference by Mike and Carrie Pickett  organized by Chris Bible College. I, Rita, also had the joy of reconnecting with some of my former fellow students!
 
In closing we want to say that we have also seen people getting healed, supernatural unexpected supply, people coming to the Lord, etc.
                 We are very exciting as we feel the Lord is preparing us for something much bigger and better than what we have been up to this far. We are not yet sure exactly what, but we are sure of this that as we aim to stay tuned in to Him and follow His leading and leadership to the best of our ability He will reveal it to us step by step as we need to know. Meanwhile we are enjoying this time of preparation!
Thank you to all of you who are on this journey with us. As a united team, dedicated to His call we can have a tremendous impact, and we believe we already do, and the world will never be the same. Let it be said os us as it was of the disciples in Jesus day, “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too!” (Acts 17:6)
 
Much love and appreciation,
Philip and Rita

Outstanding News October 2022

 

Dear partners, family, friends, supporters and loved ones,          
We are excited to be sharing with you what you are  part of accomplishing. Thank you for your generosity that helps make it possible for us to carry out the mission. You are a very essential and needed part of it and we would not be able to do this alone!

OUTREACH - SIR LOWRY'S PASS:

Seen in the photo here is a powerful team that met up on a Saturday to reach out to the community of Sir Lowry’s Pass.

A lot of seeds were sown and many souls were led to the Lord. We let our light shine and many found their way “home.” Praise God!
 
This group of 5 young men, when told “Jesus loves you,” laughed and kept going. However I decided to run after them to give them a proper witness, although they tried to act cool about it. But as they left (they actually stopped to listen after all,)  one of the young men turned around and gave me a thumbs up! Sometimes it pays to pursue and not be easily put off. Praise the Lord!
 
GRACELIFE:

 This month I taught on the first part of Romans 10:9-10, which outlines the core beliefs of the Christian faith! First hat “Jesus is Lord”. So we went through the Gospel of Mark and looked at all the places where Mark shows Jesus doing many of the things that the Old Testament shows that only God can do!
 

Philip taught on Word-based faith and the importance of the promises of God backing up what we desire from God. Without the Word it is impossible to have faith!
 

We are blessed to always start the service with a wonderful time of worship! Praise the Lord!
 
SOUP BONES:

Our missionary friends, “Helping Hand,” assisted us with approximate kg 200 of soup bones (beef)! They were fresh and were distributed to  seven different kitchens who received them with gratefulness. We were also very thankful as the people needing help has increased, and they are depending on the kitchens to provide nourishing meals to sustain them as for most of them it is their only meal for the day!The bones were distributed to 7 different places running feeding schemes!



S.A.HARVESTER:

We are very thankful to SA Harvester for their very generous help. This month we collected twice (at the beginning and again at the end of the month!) With increased prices and more mouths to feed this is a very greatly appreciated help!
 


BREAD AND PIZZA-BASES:

Somewhere between 8-900 sacks of pizza-bases and bread were distributed to  at least a dozen different places. We are very thankful to the generous donors. When the children see us  we often hear them excitedly yelling “pizza, pizza,” and they are not the only ones rejoicing! :)





MILK:


100 liters of milk distributed among 4 ECD centers and one kitchen, which feeds the children before they go to school! Praise the Lord!


SHOPPING:
Bright Stars Kitchen, Nomzamo:


We shopped some basis stables for two kitchens: Bright Stars in Nomzamo and Angels’ Kitchen in Sir Lowry’s Pass. We want to thank each and everyone of you who are enabling us to do so! We are making an important difference to many!
 
Angles' Kitchen, Sir Lowry's Pass:


WOOLWORTHS:

The donations from Woolworths are designated to Joyce’s Soup Kitchen in Sir Lowry’s Pass. The kitchen is now receiving from their stores six times a week and once a month from the warehouse of FoodShare, which is now overseeing all the charity donations from Woolworths and other stores as well!


KIDZ CHURCH:

We have a beautiful team of ladies who are dedicated to teaching and training the little ones "in the way which they should go." Here we are touching base, addressing any issues (of which we had basically none, praise the Lord), and making plans for the children’s Christmas celebration!

BIBLES:

Philip and Steven followed up on a couple of people who received the Lord the day we had a united outreach in Sir Lowry’s Pass. They did not have Bibles and thanks to the generous donation of Bibles from our friends we were able to bring them a Bible each. We are excited about the ones being reached and eager to reach the many more who have not yet heard. Thank you for partnering with us in doing so!

LIFE-GROUPS:

We are also carrying on our LifeGroups and encouraging all our participants to reach out to others with the love of God!
Meanwhile our What’s-up ministry is also  expanding and many are commenting on how the Word is helping them and that they are learning a lot! Praise the Lord!
In closing we again want to thank each of you, our partners and supporters, as without your help the ministry would not be possible.

With much love and appreciation,

Philip and Rita
