MAKAPHUTU OUTREACH HUB
OUTREACH into KWANYUSWA
SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER 2012 UPDATE
OUTREACH from Makaphutu is an important part of ‘shining our lights’ in the local community that surrounds our village.
On Thursday the 14th of June we had the wonderful privilege of being able to give a wheelchair to an amazing charity working with the needy in the valley called “Friends of the Community.” Because Makaphutu is well known in the highway area, it is where people will often bring donated goods. Thankfully none of our children need a wheelchair but we knew that Friends of the Community would be able to give it to someone who did. It is wonderful to be in a position to channel and share resources from those who have to those who don’t. This really is part of the vision of the Makaphutu Community Hub, to be able to help and support not just the children in Makaphutu but the whole community around us as well.
Taking food from Makaphutu into KwaNyuswa in May 2012…
We had an opportunity at the end of February to visit a creche/orphanage and take them food and toys along with the students from the Hillside Destiny School of Ministry. We also took food to a women’s HIV/Aids support group in our local community of KwaNyuswa and had the privilege of praying for every lady at the meeting. One of the students felt a pain in her ankle as she bent to pray for one lady. When she asked the lady whether her ankle was painful she said that it was. A group prayed for the lady who then said that the pain in her ankle was gone. What an opportunity to see God working in the lives of the people in KwaNyuswa.
