Fun At GPM Orphans Christmas Party

xmas_2020_coverGPM had a Christmas party for some of the area’s many orphans in the Glory Power Centre (GPC) in Magona, South Africa. 94 orphans came to the party. These precious children were given a nice hot meal, gifts, treats (including plenty of cake) and food parcels – including live chickens – to take home. They played games and just had a joyous time.

Many of these orphans are living in child-headed households, where a teen is in charge of the younger siblings. The rest are living with relatives who are destitute themselves. Life is hard for these children and food is often scarce. Seeing them laugh, have fun and treated special meant everything! A number of these orphans said it was great to be able to eat like children with families.

Some testimonies from these dear children (pictured with Pastor Patrick and wife, Bonghi, from the GPC):

Mixele (Mee zhee’ lee) (pictured in red) is 10 and lives with her destitute granny. She said offen they go without food and it was like a dream to eat so much at the GPM Christmas party, get such nice gifts and be able to bring home some food, as well.

Viceth Xiviti (pictured tall) is 21 and is in the 11th grade. He is skinny because he eats so little – he lives with his younger brother and work is scarce, especially because of Covid. He said this Christmas party was a miracle to be able to eat like this. He is active in the GPC, and Pastor Patrick is mentoring him. Viceth helps set up the sound equipment and is a big help to the church.

Matlharhi (age 17, pictured in white top) became an orphan recently and has been traumatized (like virtually all of the orphans). She is having difficulty adjusting and goes without food often. She is so thankful for Glory Power Ministries for this Christmas party and for giving her God’s hope for her future.

There are many more stories like these. These orphans are experiencing difficulties we can hardly imagine in America, and it puts tears in our eyes. Glory Power plans to feed these orphans more regularly, as well as increase the resources for the orphans at the community center in the GPC, Magona. We want to provide more recreational equipment, Christian videos and other activities to give these many orphans a place to have fun and hope in Jesus from their troubles.
