The ladies from Victorious Women in Christ have been busy presenting a course named #FearMustFall at numerous schools in the Mkhondo area, during the past few months.
Monthly, schools are being visited and the main focus is on the girls. Surprisingly, large groups of girls are attending these presentations, which makes the outreach a huge success. The objective of the course is to get students to focus on the word of God and their studies. Some individuals are currently experiencing emotional or physical trauma and by attending a #Fear- MustFall meeting, they are able to get the necessary help they need.
Numerous schools have already been visited. In May 2016 Siphokuhle Secondary School received a visit and in June 2016 it was Ezakheni Combined Boarding School’s turn. In the month of July, Piet Retief High School received a visit from the VWIC. In August, quite a few visits were made. On the 4th they visited Esibusisweni Combined School where 30 students attended.
The learners experienced trauma when they had to witness their school busses being burnt. Furthermore, on the 17th of August the ladies from VMIC paid a visit to Mlilo Secondary School and an astonishing 69 students attended the presentation. kwaShuku Secondary School received a visit on the 24th of August and the matriculants welcomed the ladies by singing a song of worship.
The last visit in August was conducted on the 31st to Zendelingspost Combined School. This is a rural school with a lot of talented learners. In September, Piet Retief Primary School’s grade 7 girls also received a visit. The girls enjoyed the visit thoroughly and learned that there is no place for fear in one’s life. As long as you put your faith in the Lord, nothing is impossible!
The VWIC are currently continuing their journey by visiting more and more schools and spreading the word that fear is not an option when you believe in the Lord. A special thanks to all the churches in and around Mkhondo for their participation in this initiative. Your help is vital to supporting groups of underprivileged children and teenagers. It gives them the help and hope for a better tomorrow!
