March News Letter from Force4Good!!

Dear Ones,                            

Following is a brief account of the month that passed. When we look back we stand in awe of the Lord’s foresight and provision. He never ceases to amaze us with Him goodness.


In the photo below I, Rita, shared a message on the love and goodness of God. Using the chair as an illustration. I brought out how just like the chair is a chair and is made of plastic and offers a place of rest for whoever will receive it, so God is love and goodness and offers rest for whoever will receive it as well. It is not God that withholds from us. But if I think I am too dirty, too unworthy or doubt that the chair can hold me I limit myself and therefore, because of my way of thinking, will not be able to receive from God. Just like it is not the chair forbidding me to sit, it is likewise not God withholding from me. And I can count on Him always being good and always being love. He said, I am the Lord. I change not!

Here we are in one of our leadership meetings before the church service
We were encouraged to love one another with a brotherly/sisterly hug. Little did we know how long these hugs would have to last us! Hahaha!

Dancing and rejoicing in the Lord! "The joy of the Lord is your strength" Nehemiah 8:10.

Matthew 28:19 Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost!

Dividing into small groups where rather than being taught/told each one is encouraged to discover truth for themselves based on the Scriptures read -- encouraging personal revelation!

"Give us this day our daily bread" We thank the Lord for our precious friends from the market you readily supply us with fresh bread whenever they are able to do so.

A glimpse of some of our precious "Dream-Team" preparing and buttering the bread. -- Always ready to tirelessly serve others!

Coffee, tea and freshly buttered bread --  a welcome breakfast for most who arrived not having eaten. We never have leftovers! Hahaha!


We have been learning how to reach people more on a relational basis in order to develop disciples, as opposed to preaching and just getting quick converts that don’t go any further than that, thinking that is all there is to it and not realizing that Jesus offers freedom in this life if we continue in His Word!

We printed up a tract called COVID 19 based on Psalm 91. We all decided to meet one hour earlier than usual before our Wednesday night meeting. We spend about 45 minutes after which all (100) tracts were gone and 30 souls had been led to the Lord. Although we would like to ensure that they are all discipled, and not just won through a quick prayer, we are nevertheless very relieved to know that they are now in His hands. All the tracts had the address of the school where we meet on Sundays along with an invitation and we trust that the Lord will bring many of them along once we are allowed to gather again.


The Lord and His foresight and goodness never ceases to amaze us. The “highly sought after” (J) toilet paper was distributed in abundance along with essential foods such as Weet-Bix, milk, cooking oil, Dis-Chem supplies (Which seemed to be on hold for a long time) etc, just shortly before the lock-down!

Mila's Angel -- Sir Lowry's Pass!

Joyce's Soup Kitchen -- Sir Lowry's Pass!

Sunshine Kids -- Sir Lowry's Pass!

In the photo above: Bright Stars, Nomzamo. Below: Emily’s Play School, Sir Lowry’s Pass. The supplies were distributed around the beginning of the moth while the schools were not yet closed!

(Joyce's SOup Kitchen, Sir Lowry's Pass!)

We are very thankful for the assistance of Woolworth’s who have been extremely helpful and has helped alleviate the plight of many. We have been issued permits to continue to collect during the lock-down.


We also received a very precious load full of much needed supplies from Dis-Chem. There seemed to be a long wait between this load and the precious ones. But as seen below it brought great joy and relief. And again it arrived at a perfect time. It was distributed between several ECDs (Daycare centers).

Mila's Angels -- Sir Lowry's Pass!


And each month 100 liters of milk was distributed between Nomzamo and Sir Lowry’s Pass. We have likewise been promised a permit to continue this during the lockdown. The milk will be distributed to individual families.


On the 26th, the day before the lockdown we brought as much food as we could possibly spare from our cupboards to Sir Lowry’s Pass village. We also bought 30 vouchers most of which were distributed on the 26th (some a few days prior and some we still have on hand for the following week/weeks. You are invaluable partners enabled us to ensure to the best of our ability that everyone would start out with full cupboards and reassurance that they are not alone. That the Lord and we are there for them at all times!


We stand in awe at the goodness of God. During these times while most of the world has to tighten their belts and are anxious and concerned for their ability to have their basic needs met, the Lord turned around and blessed us above and beyond our expectations! This double cabin bakkie was donated to us completely free of charge, but not only that, it was also brought through road worthy, all the paperwork was sorted, etc. before it was given to us. The owner has opted to remain anonymous, but we know that the Lord knows and that our prayers of extra blessings and favor to be bestowed upon him will be heard!

We have long been desiring to offer a comfortable ride to those we often need to help transport from place to place. Being finally able to do so is a great joy to us!
