The Lord had lead us to minister to widows and orphans in our various communities as mandated by scripture – “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27

We had our first meeting on 27 March where we put an organisational structure together with the following people heading up the ministry: Bradley, Linda, Les and Theresa.

Vision
To fulfil the Biblical mandate of living out our faith by caring for widows and orphans.

Mission
To function as a fellowship of Churches through spiritual, emotional and physical input to fulfil the Biblical mandate of caring for widows and orphans.

Objectives

  • To identify true widows and orphans.
  • To assess each individual’s situation.
  • To profile each individual.
  • To help each individual understand our vision.
  • To identify and equip helpers.
  • To implement a support structure (Local) in each community.
  • To implement a support structure (Corporate) to the communities.

Moving forward

We have a team of people at a corporate and a local level to carry out this ministry. We minister to spiritual and emotional needs and assist in the physical.

We have teams of people who together with the local leadership of each Church who are ministering to the spiritual and emotional needs of the woidows and orphans in their respective communities.

We assist with food, clothing, schooling and entrepreneurship.

We are trusting the Lord to give us liberty to preach the Gospel among our communities through this ministry.

Please pray for God’s leading in this.

If you would like to assist, the following donations are needed:

  • non-perishable foods;
  • clothing; and
  • school materials.

Benin
Idohou Roland is a brother in Benin who has the same vision as us and has partnered with us in the ministry.

He is also ministering to orphans and prisoners and they also have a mission school for training men for the field.

We will be sharing ideas, materials and supplying them with ministry.

They are able to access lots from the web and via mail, but we are looking at flying him down to come see what we are doing and spend time with us in SA.

Please pray for this partnership and that the Lord will provide a way to get our brother to us in SA.
