Coffee with Kabelo a Roaring Success

by Denise Sherman

Despite rain, cold and urns that would not co-operate – Coffee with Kabelo (hosted by Uptown on 16 March in Braamfontein) was a roaring success. By my estimate we had about 200 to 250 eager students gathered in the SouthPoint reception area, waiting patiently to see and hear Kabelo.

Kudos to “Bouga 2 Shoes” for handling the crowd with such style and for making sure they knew that Jesus was the real celebrity. Kabelo has learned how to use the fame he has achieved, not for his own benefit but to bring all glory to God. He delivered a targeted message to the youth about their identity in Christ, and it was clear that God moved and hearts were touched. Approximately 10 people responded to the salvation call.

A big thank you to everyone that was involved for all your hard work!”

Key Women Ladies’ Health: A Fabulous Ladies Evening

Written by Justine Engelbrecht

On 9 March, Cornerstone Bedfordview hosted a successful evening on Ladies’ Health, where key issues such as pregnancy, PMS, menopause and puberty were discussed with the main focus being on menopause.

Colette, who organised the event, feels that it’s essential for all women, from teenagers to adults, to understand their bodies.

“As women, our daily lives and the interactions that we have with society are impacted by our hormones. We go through all sorts of changes through our lifetimes. Ladies’ Health was organised to provide women of all ages with the opportunity to gain greater understanding of their bodies and empower them to have greater control over how they cope with day-to-day life,” she says.

Dr Percy Moodley, a well qualified and respected obstetrician and gynaecologist, was the main speaker for the event. His talk was simple and easy to understand as well as being humorous. He included his wealth of knowledge and his experience in the field.

He mapped out the changes in a woman from infant to puberty to menopause and into old age and spoke about what to expect at every stage of your life, the hormonal changes and the health concerns.

Dr Percy was gracious enough to spend a lot of time after his talk answering questions for a whole queue of women; and with aerobics to start and prizes to finish, it was a fun evening.

Adele closed off the evening with a message that no matter what we are facing in life, God wants us to come to Him and he can solve any problem, heal any illness and He wants to be part of our life to help us!

It was a fabulous ladies evening.

Dr Percy Moodley (Mb.ChB) is a well qualified and respected obstetrician and gynaecologist from KwaZulu Natal. Dr Moodley has numerous fellowships and many years in private practice. He is also a husband and the proud father of three children. His special interest lies in the way in which hormones influence women’s health and the way in which women can manage their hormones. Dr Moodley believes that there are a variety of lifestyle adjustments that can be made and treatments available that can enable women of all ages to cope with hormonal changes throughout their lives.

Kids’ Camp 2012 – What Was it Like?

Written by Justine Engelbrecht

When God’s people come together there is an amazing unity of spirit and the 2012 Kids’ Camp was absolute proof of this. It was a privilege to be included as part of an incredible team of leaders and assistants and to enjoy the benefit of interacting with the children. Under the leadership of Lance the 2012 camp MISSION: HIMPOSSIBLE encouraged the children to be the best agents that they can be, while at all times keeping in contact with God, emphasising the importance of faith, the Holy Spirit, praying to God, reading God’s Word and getting closer to God.

The children were divided into five teams representing five nations that need prayer: Turkey, Indonesia, Iran, Morocco and North Korea. The children rose to the occasion and war cries and camp songs were a highlight during the course of the weekend. In between this time the children enjoyed various challenges and games: Tug of War, obstacle courses, paintball, “spider web”, pole balance in the pool, the climbing wall and smuggling Bibles into China, with a healthy dose of free time for swimming, relaxing and meals.

As qualified field agents the children have been released into the mission field. Here are the missions that you can help them with:

Mission 1: Each child is encouraged to give a packet of chips together with a booklet to a friend and read it with them.
Mission 2: Read James 4:8 – Come near to God and He will come near to you.
Mission 3: Read Romans 8:31 – If God is for us, who can be against us?
Mission 4: Read Psalm 5:3 – In the morning, Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.
Mission 5: Read 1 Corinthians 15:41 – The sun has one kind of splendour, the moon another and the stars another, and star differs from star in splendour.
Mission 6: Read Matthew 10:42 – And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is My disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.

Book early for Kids’ Camp 2013…it is a valuable part of your child’s walk with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
