Reaching the Children of South Africa

Brad Senekal – Outreach Coordinator –

Joyce Meyer Ministries South Africa Office

Her name is Nonate Mkhwanazi, she is a student at the Maphakama Primary School at Clau Clau (in Nelspruit, South Africa). She is only 10 years old, but has already seen a bad side of life. Along with her brother and sister, Nonate lives with her ill and unemployed parents. Her mother receives a small child grant from the government but it is too small to make ends meet for a family of five.

When the caregivers at the Joyce Meyer Ministry, Hand of Hope feeding center at Clau Clau heard about the suffering of the children, they arranged for all three of the children to visit the center. Now, Nonate and her siblings go to the center each day for a meal. They are now healthy and happy. Nonate said that the future looks brighter to her now. She has also learned a lot about Jesus at the feeding center and has accepted Jesus as her personal Savior! It is feeding programs like this one that not only meet real and immediate physical needs but also meet the real spiritual needs of the children and communities. Thank you partners for helping to make this all possible.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
