A beautiful May morning became even better when the Victorious Women in Christ’s planning meeting was attended, on Thursday 5 May (Ascension Day).
The meeting was opened in prayer by Maryke de Bruyn where after Anneke Rabe read from the Scriptures (Mark 16). She reminded everyone present that Jesus is always with us, every day, since He sent us the Holy Spirit during Pentecost. That is the difference between the Old Tetament and the New Testament: Jesus who was a hundred persent Man is also a hundred persent God and He is now with us, always. That means that when the Victorious Women go out to the schools they do not go alone.
Planning and dates were discussed for the school visits and Faith Makowa was thanked for the wonderful administrative job she is doing for the women. It was also mentioned that they are in the process of registering as an NPO organisation, which means that donators would be able to get certificates for tax purposes. According to San- Marie Brauckmann, the planning for the stylish evening with Jackie Burger is on track. If you still don’t have a ticket, hurry to Kebar and get one. This evening is not to be missed – a lovely meal makes out part of the parcel. Other wonderful projects that have been started is the “Keep girls in school” project, for which funding is still desperately needed, as well as the Fun Bunch group for widows and single women.
A wonderful opportunity to pray for change in South Africa over ten days, is currently being mobilised. Everyone at the meeting was also reminded that Christians are hope bearers and Piet Meiring’s devotions with regard to inter alia reconciliation will be made available to all. The ladies were encouraged to share them far and wide. Melinda de Klerk explained the exciting theme, #fearmustfall, to be used this year. What a lovely, peaceful morning this was. Unity among the ladies from so many different churches and walks of life was evident and love for God and one another was palpable.
