Senior Burgers se Ete -Diakonie oortref hulself

Die Diakonie het op Saterdag 10 Desember 2011 hulle jaarlikse kersete vir diegene oor sestig Senior Burgers aangebied en watter luisterryke gebeurtenis. Die drie-gang ete was uit die rakke en smullekker--nie eers nodig vir tande nie so sag was die vleis, nie te praat van die pampoen, hoenderpastei, blomkool in kaassous afgerond met die heerlikste nagereg, koffie en tee. Daarbenewns het Br Jaftha die gehoor met sy melodieuse stem bekoor en die harte laat streel. Sr Fass was op haar stukke met die liedjie wat sy in Standerd 2 geleer het -goed vir iemande van 82jr of soos sy dit gestel het 28 omgedraai! Die gaste het dit terdeë geniet en Sus Faroa het namens die gehoor hulle innige dank en waardering uitgespreek. Almal was verder verras met ,,, gratis cd van Elvis "Down Memory Lane". Ons sê weereens baie dankie en welgedaan aan die Diakonie.

Cosy Club does it again!

Cosy Club , a local ladies` social club, has again donated grocery hampers to needy families in our congregation. This year they surprised us by donating ten large grocery hampers to the value of R380-00 each, which will be distributed by our Deacons. Last year we received five such hampers. Cosy Club does sterling work in the larger community and they have donated a total of 66 hampers to a number of orgnisations in the community. They run other projects such as refurbishing the Susan La Porta Home in Kuisriver.Once again we say thank you to Cosy Club and we wish them well with all their endeavours. (See p8 for photo).

VGK SA ESTIG NUUSBRIEF

Sunday School Xmas Play and Outing

THE PLAY: Year after year, new discoveries are being made...It all started with a touch of dedication, vision, commitment, discipline, participation, but mostly so, Faith. Kids are an inspiration...and by so saying they are our little Angels placed in our care here on earth. They are at times the best of jewels and indeed when it comes to singing the Christmas Carols, they just sound so sweet like Angels ..." Kids... They are the purest form of vessel God could ever use to teach and remind us of His everlasting Love...the beauty of a child's soul... " We know that with God "All things are possible" and with that piece of Faith, we once again embraced our task with limited time and resources. We needed to remain encouraged, focused and positive so that amidst some challenges, ensure we carry out the message that Christ is born on Christmas Day. Thank you to our backbone, Brother Petersen who always carries us with prayer and understanding. His gentle, kind and loving spirit kept us committed. We will miss him dearly as our Leader as he has stepped down, but also know in our hearts, he would always be part of the Sunday school. The kids were just extraordinary cute! Until we all realize what impact these kinds of activities has on a child's spiritual journey, we need to continue to do what they actually enjoy. And they always enjoy themselves laughing at our entertaining characters, some even just enjoy being around while others are having fun practicing their lines or actually sing. Well, as long as everyone is taking the message home and into their neighborhoods, we would achieve our goal of bringing the message that Christmas is not about the Lights, the gifts or the tree, the food, the outings, the family...but about a little baby who was born to come and save our lives. Just imagine your child saving a strangers' life with the message of Christmas, or putting a smile on another child's face by sharing this wonderful, beautiful and encouraging story. THE OUTING: The excitement continues...a bus trip to Gordon's Bay on a very cold and windy day! Very early in the morning everybody arrived and off we went to spend the day swimming in the ocean. As we all know, nothing stops a child from having fun right? When we arrived at our destination, clouds started to pack and the wind getting stronger, we had to hold on to one another and make sure the wind don't blow the little ones away. Serving breakfast was first priority. One of the girls said "I just knew we would have hotdogs, yippy! Others couldn't wait to munch away on their chips and chocolates while some were already getting ready to swim! Convincing them otherwise, was pointless...and off they went! It wasn't too long, then the sun made it appearance and the wind subsided quite a bit, Yippy! What a lovely day out in Gordon's Bay! Two or more teachers took the courage to join, al is dit net voete natmaak, but all together it was lovely. Some boys threatened to throw one teacher into the water, can you imagine the heart attack? But the fun and laughter was great! Our grade 8's enjoyed themselves modeling and taking pictures on the beach while some boys played ball games and the small ones building sand castles. The struggle began of course to get them out of the water when it was time to go home. We thank our Heavenly Father for a safe journey to and from Gordon's Bay and also for His Protection and Blessing to have had the opportunity to end our year in such a wonderful manner. We thank our parents for trusting us with their kids and those who joined in, we had great conversations and is just looking forward to a very successful 2012 filled with lots of Spiritual Growth and Blessings for both our teachers, parents and children. I wish everyone a Blessed Christmas, safe and happy holidays. Azereth Dimphana ( Azzy)
