Christmas for Children in a Refugee Camp

christmas_gifts_mokgobaGlory Power Ministries (GPM) provided Christmas gifts for children – including orphans – in the squalid Mokgoba refugee camp in South Africa. GPM has a church in Mokgoba pastored by Peter Matalapu. Peter made a nice Santa and distributed gift parcels to over 70 children. The parcels included candy, biscuits, juice and other goodies. Many of these children, even up to the age of 16, said that this was the first Christmas gift that they had ever received!

These children live under extreme poverty conditions – notice the shack in the background of the cover picture which is a typical dwelling. Mokgoba has over 3,000 Zimbabwean refugees, but also many destitute South Africans. The camp is infested with HIV/AIDS, crime, alcohol abuse, immorality and an overall sense of hopelessness. 90% of children in Mokgoba are either orphans or have single parents. Most of these children have never experienced the love of a father.

Peter and his wife, Sonnikie, regularly minister to the children in the community. They have a daycare with over 35 children whom they also teach Bible stories and share the love of Jesus. They also daily feed 20 orphans, help them with their homework and have led all of them to pray to receive Jesus as their Savior. More and more other impoverished children from the community are coming to these daily feedings. Peter and Sonnike disciple all of these children regularly, laying a Godly foundation in their lives.

We are thankful that people and businesses from the community have rallied around Peter’s work, by donating some food and other items to help these precious children.

GPM would love to help these needy children so much more, to give them hope through Jesus for a better life and provide more of their basic necessities. If you would like to help these children, please click on the link below. God will bless you. Thank you!
