We have been busy over the Christmas period with renovations to our new site as Isibani also transitions into the new year and a new season.
You will have read in previous updates that we are moving into Khetani to be closer to the community we serve and to be more accessible to those in need, the renovations are going well and we expect to be in our new site very soon.
Together with Matthew 25 we are delivering pre-cooked meals to those in need In Khetani; we deliver to people’s homes so are able to pray with them and walk with them as they navigate life’s challenges. Through these regular home visits, twice weekly, we are able to monitor our clients and ensure they are receiving help appropriate to their current need. Logistically we are not able to visit the farms so often so families living outside of Khetani still receive maize meal plus supplementary food parcels.
We work closely with SAPS and are often invited to accompany them to homes where there have been reports of abuse, this ensures that the victims receive suitable counselling from the outset and we are grateful to SAPS for allowing us to assist them in this area.
We hope in 2016 we can continue to build relationships built on trust and that we can offer care and practical support to those in need. Please continue to pray for everyone involved in this ministry.
