PASTOR ISAAC SEDIBA
In the past year the Lord has blessed the growth of our food ministry more than we could have imagined. Due to the amount of partnerships, one of our team members would spend a great deal of time on the road picking up and distributing food each week. Our team prayed for the finances to employ a South African to be the food driver. The Lord provided a ministry partner to make this happen!
Thanks to a ministry partner, Abba's Pride is able to employ Pastor Isaac Sediba to be our food driver. Pastor Isaac, pastor of Praise Tabernacle in Wallmansthal, leaves his house every morning at 8:00 am Monday through Thursday to travel into Pretoria to pick up food. He spends nearly 30 hours per week on the road delivering food to six centers. Our food distributing partners include: Newlands Spar, Monument Park Spar, Pick'n Pay Menlyn, JAM (Joint Aid Management), and Lyttleton Fresh Produce Housewives Market.
A BIG "THANK YOU!"
THE HIXON FAMILY (MOUNT JOY, PA)
Last week our team spent time showing Jon Hixon (Co-Owner of Hixon Plumbing) and his family the ministry. We were able to visit four centers, where their family was able to meet the pastors, hear their stories, and spend time with the children and their teachers. Last year, Hixon's Plumbing donated the funds for Rock of Ages to receive 6 brand new flush toilets. Last week, Jon was able not only to see the toilets, but meet the many children that have been impacted by the generous donation.
MOUNT CALVARY CHURCH (ELIZABETHTOWN, PA)
For the second year in a row, Abba's Pride has been blessed to be the recipients of MCC Sports Ministries "Upwards" sports jerseys! Thanks to their generous donation, the 4 and 5 year olds at both Praise Tabernacle and Baptist Body of Christ left school this week in new sports clothes! Thank you Mount Calvary Church for your continued partnership!
