Hundreds of donated shoes of many shapes and sizes have been collected, processed, and donated to needy individuals and centres! What a blessing to be able to provide those in need with one of the most basic and recognized commodities, good shoes!
Here you see a few pictures of the thousands of kilos of fresh fruit and vegetables distributed during September.

Hallelujah! s
The Hermanus Whale Festival is a great opportunity to reach many with the Gospel – both locals and tourists. The team of youth and a couple overseers arrived in Hermanus yesterday and will be coming back on Sunday. Please join us in prayer for lives changed, souls saved, good weather, protection on the streets, and for the van to run properly (we have had a few issues with it recently.) Thank you so much! God bless you! (Here you see the team with the Gospel materials for the outreach – Bibles, tracts, books, and more!!!)
Mike and Tim brought these fresh, healthy donated butternut to a local township, where they were distributed to many families. Soup veg like butternut are always a blessing, and on behalf of all these families, we say “thank you” to our donors!
We all had a wonderful time celebrating Heritage Day with our friends and neighbours. Each household braaied their meat, and there were snacks, salads, and breads to enjoy! There was a jukebox for music, a jumping castle for the children, and tents set up to sit under. There was even a prize for best costume, and there’s no doubt that a lot of effort was put in to look the parts! To top it all, one of the neighbours organized an ice cream truck as a surprise; and oh were the children surprised!!! A real thanks goes out to all those who made it a reality, and went the extra mile in love. Between friends, conversation, food, music, and fires, it was truly a day to remember! We are so so blessed to have a community like this to celebrate life with! Praise God!
The children of Helping Hand visited a home for the elderly, bringing cookies, inspirational Activated magazines, hugs, and smiles!
This orphanage in Khayelitsha cares for over 100 children daily, so the foodstuffs and other goods we were able to bless them with were received with great gratitude!
