Children of Clarens Mission:
Christ Church has six mission partners, and we send 10% of our annual income to these six missions. Dihlabeng Christian School and The People of Hope both based in Clarens South Africa are one of our six mission partners. Here is an update from Bill and Sheila Robbins on how our gift to these organisations in Clarens has been spent:
From our 2017 giving, £1500 has been sent from individual sponsors for three children at Dihlabeng Christian School, £500 for the feeding scheme and £2000 for general school funds. The balance of £2000 has been sent to the People of Hope to pay for the expenses of their volunteers who over the last few years have been looking after 300 families per month in their community. Due to the success of their educational and support programmes this is now down to 20 families and they are about to embark on going out to different communities to provide the same education and support for those with HIV. They give thanks for our gift and ask for prayer for volunteers to come forward and for the various communities to give them a warm welcome as they seek to know God’s purpose and plans for the team.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Sheila and Bill Robbins (Mission Champions)
