Orphans Fed and Produce Sold to Community from GPM Orphans Farm

harvest_picking_tomatoesGPM recently had a big harvest of tomatoes, butternut squash, spinach, beans, a local nut and beets (see pictures, some with GPM Pastor Patrick) from the Glory Power Orphans Farm in Magona, South Africa. GPM distributed this produce in food parcels to many local orphans and destitute, and sold a great amount to the surrounding community.

The proceeds from selling this produce was used to buy more staples for the orphans, for seeds for replanting the farm and to help Pastors Patrick and Bonghi from the Glory Power Center in Magona be more financially independent.

All of the above benefits from the orphans farm is in line with GPM’s vision – feed orphans and the poor, and make our pastors independent, as well as raise money to expand the ministry in South Africa.

All of the orphans and destitute greatly appreciated the produce, especially since they have not received any help from the government during the pandemic and lockdown in South Africa. Some of their stories:

The young man in the shorts with Pastor Pat is Colen, 19. He lives with his sister who is 17. They have been orphans for 5 years. They are students and sometimes get help from their older brother. Colen was surprised to receive these parcels as he was running low on food and wasn’t sure how he would get more as his brother is struggling to get work during the lockdown. Colen thanked God for this miracle.

The woman in the brown sweater is Pfuxi (fu’ she), 13. She has been an orphan for several years and lives with a woman, Maria, who is a widow and takes care of five of her own children. Maria gets small housekeeping jobs infrequently so she struggles to feed all of the children. Pfuxi was very happy to receive the parcels that she will share with the household.

GPM also gave food parcels to Vongani, who is in her 20’s, wearing the white top. She struggles to get work during the lockdown. Vongani said that she will now eat very nice food and said God must bless GPM.

Pictured in the yellow top is Thovisa, 18, with her grandmother whom she lives with. They were happy to receive the produce because they also have had difficulty getting food because of the lockdown.

GPM will continue to bless local orphans and destitute with each harvest from the Orphans Farm. We hope to expand the farm to more than double the size soon because the need is so great with orphans and the poor in the area. Also, GPM will use the money from selling produce to also expand GPM’s ministry in South Africa.
