Support coming in for Helen's training

God is so wonderful! Helen is an intern with us full time with a small allowance and accommodation provided by us.  After praying, she felt to go ahead to study a Bible Degree program but a money miracle was needed.  This last week we had a substantial gift towards Helen's training.  Not only is it the money for the course that is so great, it is the expression of God's love towards her and her continually growing knowledge of the Father heart of God.  Thanks generous people.


Just wanted to let you know we have a new computer for the youth at homework club to use.  All we need now is an internet connection!  But in the meantime they can use to type assignments.  Thank you Jesus!

We have a small library of books for those with no homework to read.  Here are some boys enjoying them.

Anyone like to donate more books? 
Hard at work... soon will be devotions then dinner. :)

School Sponsored Kids Party!

We had a fun time on Monday night as the 31 children His Heart sponsors to school were invited to a party wonderfully organized by Paige.  We see these children often, but every quarter we gather them together for a special night of encouragement and ministry. 

They enjoyed games, snacks, prayer, worship, awards, dinner and a movie.  To top it off, the Elementary aged children received shoes from Life International Ministries in the USA. 

It's hard to express to you what a difference school sponsorship can make in the life of a child and their family.  We have literally seen lives do a U-turn as we reach out with this tangible expression of God's love.  
Thank you sponsors for your compassion and love.


Worship and prayer for success in their study and life

New shoes! Yay!

Thank you Lord! You are changing lives!

Homework Club

A few weeks ago we started a homework Club for high school aged youth. It became obvious to us that our sponsored students and many other children from poor homes, were very disadvantaged because they had no access to resources.

They simply don't have money to go to the internet cafe to research. Additionally, most of them come from a squatter community and to find peace in small shacks is very difficult, let alone have a table and chair with light to work at.

So we have put together a simple program endeavouring to help them have the opportunities that many others have - the Homework Club.

The young people arrive after school, have a brief afternoon tea and come inside ready to study. After praying for each other, that God will bless them in their studies, they begin. If they have homework, they complete that or revise. Older students and adults help younger ones if possible. We are praying for at least two computers and an internet connection so that they can use the internet to research or to type assignments.

After an hour of quiet working, we have a short devotional and worship time. These young people are passionate for God and its always hard to stop worshipping. :) However, we have a full hot dinner waiting for them. They eat happily - often having plates of seconds. They leave smiling... and we know their hearts have been touched by the tangible love of God.
