We have been thrilled to have been able to give 200 sponsored copies of the beautiful “Christmas Long Ago” story book to the Spiritual Services department of the South Africa Police Service here in Pretoria.

The SAPS Spiritual Service department provides vital help and support to bereaving families who have experienced loss in the line of duty. The Christmas Long Ago story books and read-along CDs will make beautiful inspirational gifts for these boys and girls, many of whom have been through so much.

Sunday School Teacher Training Workshop

Over the last few months we have heard desperate pleas from pastors of small churches in informal settlements in our area, ‘Can you help us start a children’s ministry?’ It became apparent that there is a great need to train Children’s workers. We accepted the challenge and got busy putting together the workshop material. We worked together with Kohen Ministries, who handled the communication with their partner churches as well as provided the venue.
