Help farmers in Sterkfontein

Several farms in Sterkfontein has been burnt down to the ground, causing the cattle and other animals to have to go without food until the rain comes. Unfortunately the animals will not be able to feed on the new grass when it springs as it is poisonous and they will die.

There is one specific lady, who is 76 years of age who owns 9 cattle, she is unable to buy food for them on her small pension.

We are calling on people to make donations towards feeding the animals. One bale is R40. Any kind of donation will be helpful, please email openyourlovelyheart@gmail.com to find out how you can help.

Prayer for Phillip

Please pray for Phillip, who is currently in the rehabilitation centre, after his tragedy at work.

He was severely hurt after an explosion at work where he was trapped under concrete. He is really struggling after 3 weeks in the rehabilitation centre.

Please pray for him to find his way to God and to trust God in giving him the strength to fully recover and get back to his fiancé and new born baby.

Prayer for Frans

Please pray for Frans, as he was admitted to hospital for having a big blood clot in his right lung. He also has bleeding ulcer in his stomach.
