Malelane/Schulzendal July 2004
The work at Malelane (click here for previous report) continues to go forward, by the Lord's
grace. There are permanent co-workers (such as Dr Jan and Susan Pienaar) at
the mission and teams from Kwasizabantu which go for a week or two and sometimes a
month or more.
The following group left for Malelane on 25 July for a few weeks
Jabulani Dube, Bernard Hlathi and a team left today for the
Malelane Centre in the Mpumalanga province to support Jan and Susan Pienaar. They'll be
ministering extensively in the area and will appreciate your prayer support. They have
also brought food and clothing for distribution among orphans.
Accompanying the team are Victor and
Katarina Matveyuk, a Russian American couple with a call to Africa. They have a special
burden for Aids orphans and that will be their focus in Mpumalanga.
The work at Schulzendal (Malelane)
continues to grow and is now a fledgling mission station with 6 buildings. To
assist the ministry there are some support projects such as: 5 cows (to provide milk
for the mission and to sell); 1000 chickens and a mill to grind maize. The mill has become
a community project of great benefit to the whole neighbourhood. Locals bring the maize
they have produced to the mill to be ground.
The team which went recently (25 July)
has also brought food and clothing to distribute among orphans.
Besides the people who come to the
mission for help there are also many opportunities to minister in schools and in local
homes where Aids is taking its toll.
