Food parcels for the needy.

While we packed the food parcels I was praying that this food would multiply in their hands

We were privileged to be part of packing and distributing food parcels for the needy on Monday at Makro and at the Diepsloot Church.

When Pastor Melusi contacted us on Monday morning and asked if we could meet them at Makro, my spirit jumped inside of me with joy.

It’s such a blessing to be able to make a difference in another person’s life. I enjoyed every minute working with Pastor Melusi and his team.

While we packed the food parcels I was praying that this food would multiply in their hands, just as it did for the widow woman and her son in the Bible when she fed the prophet, Elijah, with her last oil and flour; also just as when Jesus  multiplied the 5 loaves and 2 fishes to feed the multitudes. 

After packing the food parcels we went to the Diepsloot Church, we met up with all the poeple that were on the list that we had.

What a joy,  just to fellowship with some of them.  It took a lot of restrain from me not to just go and hug and love these precious people.

Thank you Lord that we (Heritage of Faith members) can be part of the solution. 


I live for opportunities where I can be a  blessing to others. It was no different when we got the opportunity to be part of packing parcels at Makro for those in need in our Diepsloot community. 

It was good to see Pastor Melusi and the team, and we packed each parcel with care. It was evident that the parcels contained much-needed items.

As we entered Diepsloot, I became aware of the need amongst the people who live there. In my heart, I felt that it would be so nice to be able to do much more, but we had parcels packed specifically for people who were identified by Pastor Melusi, and their names appeared on a list; I knew it is impossible to feed them all. 

When we handed out the parcels at the church, it was evident to see and experience the deep gratitude these people had for these food parcels. As we left, I felt a deep satisfaction that tonight these people would not go to sleep with an empty stomach.
