REPHAT WRITES ABOUT BINGA
It is just a few days before we hit the road back to Binga again. And I am thinking here comes another trip of enduring 9 to 10 hours on the road. But what excites me most is that we are taking God’s provision to the children in need. I see ourselves as God’s vehicle.
The beginning of this year we started training 40 volunteers from 11 Churches in Siabuwa. It is encouraging to see men and women from this community coming together to be trained and we are seeing God touching and transforming the lives of these people. What excites me the most is their commitment to the program and I strongly believe that these men and women are going to transform their community.
It is our desire that the local churches catch the vision of taking care of orphans in their community, thereby fulfilling the scriptures, one of them being James 1v27.
I thank God that tents were purchased, and now we no longer need to rent a house for our accomodation while in Binga, but rather we now travel with our own camping equipment, thus giving us more time to get to know these volunteers and spent time with the children.
I have often heard people say,”Soul winning is God’s heart beat”. Thank God that Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost, but I also strongly believe that caring for orphans should become the “Church’s heart beat”.
I would like to thank God that two of the orphans (Bush-borders) we have been supporting in school are completing their ‘O’ levels this year, and I am very much impressed by their performance. It is so encouraging to see the fruits of our ministry, indeed our labour is not in vain.
• Please pray for the volunteers in Nsenga that they will be encouraged and remain comitted to their call.
• Pray for the volunteers who are currently being trained in Siabuwa that they will catch the vision of looking after orphans in their community.
• Pray for Binga centre, that God would raise volunteers who have children at heart.
• Pray for Simatelele volunteers, we seem to have elderly people. Pray that God will give them strength to counsel and play games with the children.
