On Saturday we had the first phase of our 'Project Fix It' in which we're blessing our church members who live in the local townships by fixing up the things that make for a more bearable winter. So far we've replaced front doors, fixed leaky roofs, built new front steps and replaced many broken windows.
The support from church members has been brilliant with some giving money and others rolling up their sleeves and doing the work. We also wanted to bless the wider communities so as well as blessing our church members, we had people praying with those in need and a team of guys playing with the children for a few hours. All in all it was a tiring morning but everyone went home feeling satisfied at having done a great job. Praise God!
