Christmas with the children@Rhema Gospel Outreach Ministry
On Saturday, 10 December 2022, Operation Mercy went to the children at Pastors Jonathans school (part of Rhema Gospel Outreach Ministry) and spent quality time with the children. Because God gave us Lord Jesus as our Christmas gift we gave gifts to the 33 children who confirmed to attend the function.
Thanks to our wonderful partners and members who supported this event and gave gifts, Operation Mercy saw the need of blessing and each child received an amazing Christmas gift and added to the joy of the festive season. Located a few kilometers from The Miracle Centre in an impoverished area, Rhema Gospel Outreach Ministry teaches, feeds and ministers to 54 children through its preschool and also ministers to its community through its church of 150 members.
Through your support and giving, Operation Mercy saw the need of Rhema Outreach Centre and was able to bless them with gifts and treats. You can still support a child at this school for just ZAR 350 per month.
A Big thank you to all the Volunteers, Event Director Bro ther Ngoni and Pastor Louann for running this event with excellence.
Some Feedback from the Outreach Team...
“The OM Christmas party was an absolutely amazing opportunity and privilege to minister the love of Jesus to a less fortunate community. It really warmed my heart to see the expectancy within each child, and the joy on their faces. It made me realise that we should have the same "child like" faith with our Heavenly Father. It also reminded me of the Agape love of Jesus, how He holds each one of us, irrespective of our circumstances or situations securely in the palm of His right hand.”
Pastor Louann Appalraju
“Thank you to God our Father and our Pastors and Leaders, who gave me an opportunity to witness and to SHARE the LOVE of with Pastor Jonathan and his church. Seeing thosechildren joyfully and some shyly receiving their gifts hearing them singing was a greatexperience for me. Pastor Jonathan was almost in tears when he received his gift and a big HIGH FIVE to the team.”
Brother Richard Nkosi
“I am truly blessed to be a part of Operation Mercy and this past Saturday was another
occasion where God used us to be a blessing to others. The Christmas party was such an
amazing experience and the smiles on every child’s face was an epitome of why Jesus
Christ said it is more blessed to give than to receive.
I am extremely excited for all that God has prepared for us in the future through our
partnership with Pastor Jonathan and the orphanage and various other projects.”
