The dream of the Care Africa project, has had a little resurrection moment, and its enthralling to see it happen.
The recent floods in Mozambique drew a post from me, and the response of one of my friends Gene Jordaan, ushered in a flow of sequenced events that have enabled me to have my wish come true.
Gene was moved by the dire effects of the floods on the people, that she sprung into action and contacted some relief organisations, to assist with the logistics of getting a collection of goods to the victims of the floods.
I was able to make up a range of stationery for the school kids, vegetable seeds and Bibles. Mission Aviation Fellowship liaze with Mercy Air who fly out to Mozambique, and deliver goods.
But amazing was the flow of events that have enabled this to happen.
Out of the blue Maxine Holm of MAF called to thank me for the donation for Moz, and it was then that I asked her how I could get a care bag to them for their ongoing relief campaign for the flood victims – where there is still a great huge need. It just ‘so happened’ that one of their representatives was in Durban at the time, I could let her have the care bag. I met Natalie and gave her the bag, which she duly took up with her to Johannesburg.
Out of nowhere came the answer to my prayer to get a care bag to Mozambique – an almost impossible logistic for one person. It was such a small donation, Gene’s small instigation of love, such a small care bag, such small co-incidences, that made up the answer to my prayer. Little miracles all in a row indeed, that almost blew the seams of my heart, to see God working in the circumstances of life.
Furthermore, I’m told that there are Churches in Johannesburg that want to come together to plan a trip to Moz, to take goods and help the people there to start rebuilding their homes and their lives – the Church still working ! It’s so heart-warming to know that it is God’s love and the care of His people that makes the world a better place.
Never underestimate the far-reaching love of God, and the effects of small acts of love and answered prayers.
Easter Sunday is about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is sweet, it is pure joy and it speaks of victory over death.
May you know, first hand, many little resurrection moments in the days and months ahead, through the circumstances of your own life, and be sure of the goodness of God.
