The Merry Month of May 2022 F4G!


Dear Ones,           

Welcome to the good news of what we as a team accomplished again this month. Life goes on and some things seem routine and possibly boring. But things like eating and drinking although routine and potentially boring must go on as our very lives depend on it.

This month's ministry:
  • Feeding Schemes
  • Sharing the Gospel, training, etc


In the photos below we shopped for two kitchens. The one in Nomzamo which feeds between 4-5000 people a month and the Angels Kitchen in Sir Lowry’s Pass which has increased and now feeds sometimes 100+ people daily!

The two piles of potatoes, carrots and onions are ours, as well as all the cabbages!

Helping Hand: We are very thankful to the charity ‘Helping Hand’. From time to time they assists us with their extra supplies.  This month we received a bakkie load of fresh fruit and veggies.


As mentioned briefly in the beginning the Angels’ Kitchen has now grown to where it feeds + 100 people a days. Jessica, our Soup House mother, began last month to feed the people living by the railroad tracks. She now cooks two pots of food  and after feeding the first lot by her house, she loads the second pot unto a wheelbarrow and goes to the tracks to feed the people staying there. God bless her!


We are please to say that our Soup Mothers are diligent to clean, cut, and freeze all the veggies as we supply them. Nothing goes to waste this way, and time is saved on a daily basis as the veggies are already ready for use!


Elsie's kitchen, in Sir Lowry's Pass, has now become a regular recipient of bread/pizza bases. They feed approximate 150 people a day.


We again received a donation of 100 liters of milk which was distributed between Nomzamo and various places in Sir Lowry’s Pass.


This is just one of the many full bakkie loads we received via Lions’ Club Gordon’s Bay. We thank them and the precious donors who have been faithfully supplying! Over 1000 sacks (not pieces) of pizza bases were delivered this month. That entailed collecting and distributing sometimes up to several times a week. But we would never say no as it brings such joy and contentment to the happy receivers. Many depend on this help for their basis daily needs, such as bread!


The above is just a brief glimpse as it would not be possible to include every pick-up and every delivery! We thank God for Hie never ending generosity!


As mentioned previously  Woolworths is a big blessing to Joyce’s Kitchen. Once a week we collect, sort, weigh and deliver the supplies!


This month 10 boxes of Weet-Bix were distributed in SLP and Nomzamo. One box also went to assist for the food hampers regularly being provided by the Lions’ Club to needy families. (A few of these are seen below.

The Angels’ Soup Kitchen has + 20 children that come for breakfast before going to school. They especially enjoy it when there is Weet-Bix available! Several ECD centers are on the receiving end as well!


From time to time at the end of the ministry time there is time for Q&As. Everyone really enjoys these sessions, and we learn a lot from each other. Everyone tries to enter in and take notes in order to be able to contribute. We also tend to remember better what was shared as it gets discussed!

 On Mother’s Day all the visiting women received a beautiful rose and a chocolate bar. At the end Emily surprised everyone by calling the women of the core team of the church up to likewise be blessed!

We have a precious team of 10+ dedicated women rotating turns teaching the kids at our Kidz’ church. We started out with a small group of kids, but now regularly have over 20 in attendance!


Kidz’ Church teachers, all attended a very enlightening and powerful training course. It was taught by Martinette from Gracelife central and teachers from other campuses attended as well!

This month we also attended a leadership training conference. It happened to fall on Philip’s birthday. Everyone sang for Philip, prayed for him, and we were served a surprise birthday cake! Blessed indeed!

Here we are teaching early Monday morning in Nomzamo. We teach in SLP Monday evening, in Gordon’s Bay Tuesday afternoon, and in our home Wednesday morning. We also have a What’s up ministry and  online meetings. We are very happy and fulfilled, as well as honored to be able to minister to others. Praise the Lord!
The children, that arrive one after another while we teach, usually play quietly during our half house class and then join us at the end for prayer!


The Lions’ Club asked us to please invite and accompany some seniors to a free Jazz Festival at the Baxter theater. It was a very blessed experience and nice to do something recreational and different! As we were leaving the theater someone handed us, the three ladies, a Pick ’n Pay bag filled with a nice assortment of nice toiletries. An additional wonderful and unexpected surprise.

We want to thank all of you, our precious partners, who are the pillars of our work and help uphold us through your prayers, financial giving, training, etc. and we praise the Lord for His wonderful works whereof we are very glad indeed.
