Don’t Steal My Joy- by Mary Yiga

On Friday I was on the way to Balfour Park to say bye to my mum as she was flying to Uganda the next day and I was babysitting the Derkcsen children. I went to the bathrooms before meeting my mum. I started speaking to these two girls in the bathroom . I went to meet my mum at clicks only to realize that my bag had been opened and my iPhone was taken. I prayed right there that my phone being taken would not affect my mood and that I would not be stressed as I really wanted to have fun with Lilly and Willow and it would be so unfair on them if I was not happy. God was so faithful and the only...

Blankets for Isaiah 58

Posted

Every Friday around noon the churches’ pedestrian gate opens and one by one the day laborers waiting for odd jobs across the road enter and form two lines in front of the veranda. On the wall of the veranda are four pots lined up. Two with rice and two with Beauties’ aromatic stew. Cups filled with juice are placed on either side and sometimes there is even a huge tray stacked with sell-by date bread in the middle between the pots. The servers are ready to serve the men in their colorful aprons and with warm compassionate smiles on their faces. Every week there is the same...

Jetline Job – by Judah Roux

I was job searching for 5 months, whilst holding a job as a sales rep, which wasn’t working out for me. I decided I should go back to what I know best , which is IT. So, about a month ago I felt the Holy Spirit prompt me to have a re-look at my budget, to see what I could adjust. When I started with TruEnergy as a sales rep, I also started a small business on the side called Techrep, and had created a domain which I was paying off every month. I felt I should either make use of it or stop paying for it. I decided to make use of it. A week later, when I finished setting up most of the site,...

A Story of Hope and Glory – by Frank Crisafulli

So it began when I was about 13 and just started high school. All my friends and I thought we were cool and started smoking weed and cigarettes at school. We used to get high everyday, all day, and go to parties and take drugs and drink until we passed out! This carried on for some time and at the end of grade 9, I dropped out of school, intending to do home schooling. I promised my parents I would study but all I really wanted to do was get high and be with my friends. It got to a stage that wherever I was I just needed to be high, at the movies, at dinner, at home, wherever… I ...

Total Trust in God – by Candice Setton

Posted

I have been having huge family problems and was living in constant fear and anxiety at what would happen to the boys and I, as there was a chance that we could lose our flat and car. But God is faithful and He gave me the following two scriptures: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. — Deuteronomy 31:6. — Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. — Philippians 4:6 — I was...

Testimony- Tracy Humby

Posted

Life is hectic in Joburg. We all experience little frustrations and challenges on a daily basis and sometimes they can be rather insurmountable, but for the Grace of our Father! Below is a little testimony from Tracy Humby, where God just came through for her in an amazing way. I had to be on the western side of Jhb this morning so i left at five to go first to the gym at Cresta. I was then in the gym for about two hours, first exercising and then doing some reading. Unfortunately, I had left my lights on. So when I came out the car was dead. I tried about five times to see if there was any...
