FAMSA Christmas Party and 80 shoe boxes! Well done!!! :)

Well done St Peters! Your generosity is wonderful.

Earlier this quarter, I set a challenge of collection 80 Christmas gift parcels for the children who FAMSA (Families or South Africa) work with.

And you did it! You reached the target.
We collected 12 school bags (with school shoes) and another 68 shoeboxes filled with stationery, toiletries and toys.

Here are the pictures from the collections and the party:

Testimony:

The deadline day was 6 December to drop off all the collected parcels. That morning after packing and sorting we had reached 71 packages. I was thrilled! We had set a HIGH goal of 80.

I sent out “thank you and congratulation” messages. Because you all deserved it. Your generosity was incredible!

AND THEN – after that message, one of our members at St Peters messaged me saying that they would bring anoter 9 gifts so that we could reach our goal. Amen!

80 children were blessed by your kindess. Tose children matter. They have a future. They are loved. And our little actions of kindness, reminded them. They are worth it!

Blanket Handout

On Saturday 28 November, some ladies from the CWF and our church went to drop off blankets that were made (by various folk in our community) at Thuthukana.

Thuthukana is situated in Leslie.  It is a drop in centre that runs a creche and other social welfare services.

Thanks to those ladies who went along on Saturday.  And to those who made the blankets.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 14

Our music team played at the Christmas Party at Silver Jare in Bethel. Here are two pictures from the party:

Here are some fitting verses that go with:

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

Hebrews 12: 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

We also captured Amazing Grace in a .video (click on the word video or click below):

Church – “Picnic Style”

This past Sunday night St Peters met at the Duck Pond for the once a month family focused ‘messy church’ – evening service.  We met at 5pm and all who attended had a great time expressing and connecting with God in a different sort of way…

Here are some picture memories:

The Praise Posters we made.

(Each family / group had to gather things of creation that would be an “expression” of worship to God.)img-20161017-wa0009img-20161017-wa0010img-20161017-wa0011

Answering some questions:  “What are the sounds that you currently hear around you?” & “What are the colours you can see?”

(We are appreciative of the things we can hear and see.)
