The NG Church Florida Park again participated in turn the tide 4 children’s annual winter blankets4children drive. According to Dominee Daniel Louw of the church, the congregation had taken up a special collection for blankets and had raised nearly R6000 for the purchase of 200 blankets. Turn the tide 4 children were able to double this number and the church received 400 blankets for distribution.
Dominee Louw, together with members of his congregation, was able to distribute the blankets – in the name of the Lord – to people in need in the community (including to Senaoane and the Jan Hofmeyer Trust).
Dominee Louw describes his significant experience: “When the cold front hit, I was able to go out to distribute blankets to people who sleep on the streets in the Florida business area and down at the station. It was touching to see their response. The blankets were as ‘manna from heaven’ for the people – who seemed to appear out of the night to come and receive them.”
What a joy to be able to meet needs in this practical way!
