WE SEE LIVES, COMMUNITIES & SOCIETY TRANSFORMED THROUGH DISCIPLESHIP IN THE WORD THE PRESENCE AND POWER OF GOD.
The last two months have been really difficult for my family and I, as my father Frank Ruberangeyo Bakunzi, passed away. Our only comfort has been that he did not struggle, but passed away peacefully in his sleep.
In this time, so many people came from all directions to assist, support and stand with my family, and I am eternally grateful to all of you. For in a time when we were so alone, you put your arms around us and you carried us, and for that my family and I say THANK YOU SO MUCH....
In much happier news, Khutjo ''the amazingthespian'', has been travelling South Africa in a play called Tartuffle. This is a classic French comedy "exploring the way in which people are easily manipulated by symbols of power and honeyed words". She will be performing at the Joburg Theatre, all through June, so perhaps this would be a good time and watch some theatre. Please do let me know if you're interested.
ON THE BOARD OF TWILIGHT SHELTER
There is a shelter in Johannesburg called Twilight children's home. This shelter used to cater for 100's of homeless children in Hillbrow and the inner city. Unfortunately due to changes in government regulations, the shelter was forced to close down and many of the youth it once assisted returned to the streets.
However recently, a few social workers have been wanting to relaunch the shelter, and have asked myself and a few others to join the board and assist in this process. Last week I was voted in as the interim chairperson, and will serve in that capacity for this initial period of relaunching.
Please do keep me in your prayers, as I believe this will be a great opportunity to partner with government and other professionals, in order to better aid the homeless in Johannesburg.
