Over this last month, we’ve continued to pick up, sort, and distribute thousands of kg of fresh fruits and vegetables; thereby providing many with healthy, wholesome food this winter. The centres helped include muliple soup kitchens, an orphanage, elderly care homes, quadriplegic centres, a home for mentally disabled children, and more!
Our four person outreach team left early this morning for the Grahamstown Festival Outreach; stopping in Knysna en route to deliver some blankets, foodstuffs, and toiletries. Please join us in prayer for souls won to Jesus, hearts changed, lives transformed, and a LOT of Gospel message and literature given out! Also for good health and inspiration for the team. And for those of you who make this outreach possible. thank you so very much! God bless you!
Nearly 50 children from our Morningstar settlement Sunday School were thrilled to receive blankets and beanies on this cold winter morning. As we were leaving, the mothers ran up to us, smiling and thanking us for thinking of their children. So sweet!
That’s what makes a father wonderful, that willingness to sacrifice himself and his strength and his time to take care of his family. -D.B.B A blessed and happy Father’s Day to you!
Youth Day! We spent the days leading up to it cutting and sewing blankets to help in the areas affected by the recent stormy weather. We also cooked a huge pot of chicken soup for the homeless and distributed food, along with blankets, to hungry residents of a mixed-race informal settlement. Our youth really pitched in to help be a force for good on this special day. We’re so very thankful for YOUR help and support!
A big thank you to all those of you who have helped with the disaster relief so far! We were very warmly received by the firefighters at the drop-off point for Knysna relief. Among our delivery were blankets, toiletries, and a variety of foodstuffs! We are truly privileged to have been able to join these relief efforts for thousands of displaced Knysna residents. We will continue to assist with disaster relief locally as well, and appreciate any and all help.
May was a month of mass food distribution for us, as we collected and distributed nearly 10 tons of food to those in need! Volunteers joined us to help pack 1000 food parcels, with flour, potatoes, apples, carrots, bananas, and bread for low-and-no income families. We distributed a further 2000kg of mealie flour to 11 institutions that care for children, women in crisis, orphans, the handicapped, and the elderly. All that, along with our regular activities and outreaches, kept us plenty busy. We now look forward to another exciting month. Thank you for all your support and prayers!
In addition to their weekly Bible story, colouring pages, songs, and games, this week the children at our Morningstar Sunday School each received an apple, orange, potato, and bag of carrots! They were so joyfully thankful!
