Good News May 2023


Dear partners, supporters, family and friends,   
         This has been an exciting month with new pioneering and miraculous healings. Together we are having an impact in this world for the kingdom of God. And we thank you, each and everyone, for whichever part  you may have played, small or great.  Our united efforts are being blessed! We thank the Lord for each and everyone of you. May you continually be mightily blessed and used by the Lord to reach out with the love of God to a cold and needy world!

Shopping for two kitchens to help alleviate the hunger. We  are also working towards more spiritual ministry for the needy coming to the kitchen in Nomzamo.

Once a week we, along with the Lions’ Club, collect and distribute food donated by S.A. Harvesters and distribute it between 4-5 kitchens depending on what and how much has been received. This is a tremendous help and much appreciated


We are thankful for the nearly daily assistance of Woolworths! Here we are sorting, weighing, and packing before delivering to Joyce’s Kitchen in Sir Lowry’s Pass!

4. MILK:

We are very thankful to Sonnendahl for their faithful assistance over the years. Here 100 liters of milk is being delivered to  5 different Day-cares/kitchens!

Here we are collecting 14 large boxes of Weet-Bix to be distributed in Nomzamo and Sir Lowry’s Pass!

Everyone gathered outside the gate waiting for their names to be called and bowls to be collected. Still some managed to sneak in some extra bowls while others’ bowls went missing! So many are desiring larger portions and more to eat as this is their only warm meal for the day, and with the cold weather setting in, and children to  feed as well,  it is not an easy situation for them to be in!

Lending a helping hand and meanwhile realizing the pressure the staff is under to be quick and efficient as the people are eagerly waiting outside for their bowls to be filled so they can be on their way again. Some of them arrive way early to ensure they are not the last in the queue as they don’t want to risk that the food runs our before their turn comes. Some were served pap, and when that ran out others got pizza-bases.

In order for everything to go smoothly the plates were brought to the front and then only certain ladies, who knew the people would serve. Sadly we did not get enough time to truly minister the them all.

Towards the end one of the staff members brought this young man in to be ministered to. He was very receptive and eagerly received the Lord. We also invited him to join our Monday morning Bible classes which start at 7 am. He told us that he usually wakes up at 8 o’clock but really wants to come and will make an effort to do so. He seemed very sincere and look  forward to minister to him further.

While the children nap, the staff sacrificially cook, serve, clean and prepare for the following days meal. They get little if any rest themselves and yet they serve with big smiles and joyful hearts. They are also eager to learn how to minister to others and lead them to Christ. We are pioneering at the moment and seeing what works and what doesn’t. We were all kept quite busy just dishing out the food and when all was done, the people were gone. But some souls were won and we are devising a plan and strategy for how to be more effective. The Lord has already shown us a few things that we can improve on. Small beginning, greater ends! Please keep our efforts here  in your prayers. Thank U!

As soon as one days meal is served the preparation for the following day begin!

Weekly distribution of pizza-bases/bread is made in Nomzamo and Sir Lowry’s Pass provided the supply is sufficient. This is made possible in cooperation  with the Lions’ Club  in Gordon’s Bay.



On this particular day 52 people prayed with our team to receive the Lord! Praise the  Lord. We met for prayer before and after!

The sick were prayed for and ministered to as well.

While ministering to this young man he received a call. He politely excused himself as he was  “in an important meeting.” He then went on the receive the Lord!

Our lead pastor, Shayne, and his wife Marna, visited. Here the elders are being prayed for and JB our local pastor is being prayed in. 

Here I, Rita, am teaching on keys to keeping the faith and staying strong in the Lord!

Here Philip is being prayed for on his birthday, 14th of May, which also happened to be Mother’s Day this year.

For Mothers’ Day we provided small chocolate bars and sachets of cappuccino. They were served with  Scriptures from Proverbs 31 about godly women and the blessing they are to their households!

In Kidz Church we learned about the tower of Babel. We also saw how the Lord had taken away man’s common earthly language, but now has given man a common heavenly language —tongues. We also practiced praying in tongues all together. — In the photo the tower is getting higher and higher!

Our Life-Group in Nozamo have just about finished their basis course. We will carry on with other lessons while also  encouraging them to start reaching out to others with the love of God! - In this photo we are teaching the children John 3:16 in song and motions!
In recent times we have been experiencing more and more of the supernatural. It seems to us that miracles are occurring more frequently and we are excited to be a part of this great move of God. And to have you, our precious partner and supporter as part of the team.
             We prayed for a young mother of two, who had been diagnosed with cancer of the colon. She was prayed for and encouraged to get in the Word and fight the good fight of faith. When she went for her next check-up the colon of the cancer was GONE! However she was told that she now had cancerous tumors on her lungs. Whe she later returned for a follow-up check up she was told that they could no longer find any cancer in her body. However they insisted that she come again the following day for a check up as they were baffled and simply couldn’t understand how this could be! —- We praise the Lord for His supernatural healing that passes all understanding.
I, Rita, was one day cleaning my teeth with a toothpick when all of a sudden one of them fell out!! I shot up out of my chair, pushed the tooth back outr and said, “No, you don’t!” I then began to jump for joy and praise the Lord. In the days following I reminded my tooth that it was healed by the stripes of Jesus! — You might wonder why the great hype over one small tooth! But, it was not just over one small was my full persuasion, my confidence in the Lord’s ability and willingness, my faith! I took a stand and refused to come off. It is now 3 months later and the tooth is still in place!
S. while at work all of a sudden began to feel dizzy and loose her eyesight. It was not getting better, so she decided to go home. However when getting back she decided to go to her neighbor. But before letting her leave her neighbor insisted on prying for her and in the same instant she was totally healed. Praise the Lord!
