Clothing distribution. A big help to the people there!

Emily’s Soup kitchen, Sir Lowry’s Pass, were all very thankful to receive Weet-Bix for the children’s breakfast. We would like to thank the Weet-Bix company for their generosity.

Our daughter, who together with her husband and 3 daughters live and work as a fulltime volunteer in Pretoria, visited us here for a few days. We found a sale on hats and she sweetly bought us one each!

SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST: The soup kitchen started out the year without electricity. It was off for six months, then on for one month, and it is now off again. Please pray for the electricity to come on and stay on! Thank you! They are also about to loose some very important equipment: deep freezers, an industrial baking oven, etc. We plan to approach different companies for help to replace the equipment and would like you to please back us up in prayer for this as well. Thank you!

Our regular projects such as: ministering to the support group, youth group, having Life Team meetings in the home, Bible studies, etc. were also carried on and we are inspired to see how the life-giving words of Jesus changes, strengthens and encourages many who before were left with little or no hope.

In closing we want to thank all of you who have chosen to partner with us and thereby have become an indispensible part of the work. Without your assistance we would not be able to devote the needed time and effort to this work. We pray that the Lord will bless and prosper you in all that you do and that you may know that your labours of love are not in vain. Thank you so much! XXX!
