Many thanks for your warm welcome back after my visit to Zimbabwe and Swaziland. I was grateful to God, everyday, for my health, safekeeping, enjoyment and for the thoughts and prayers of my Ballymore family. I was surprised and very touched to receive such a generous total amount from several sources…the Select Vestry, individual gifts and the retiring collection from the Gospel Concert.

I divided the money equally and donated it as follows to:-

  • Canon Orma Mavimbela for the work of her four Care Points, where children and young people are fed after school;
  • Frances Takis, a deacon in the Anglican Church, who supports many poor, infirm, elderly people in the community.
  • Mnyokane Anglican Primary School, where I helped with English teaching, for uniforms for the poorest pupils in this rural area.
  • Sikholiwe, the inspirational organiser of wide-ranging work of Scripture Union in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, including outreach to teenage boys living on the streets, a rural home for young people, where the growing of crops is being developed, as an income-generating activity.

All the recipients are deeply grateful to their ‘Christian brothers and sisters’ in St. Mark’s, Ballymore, for their loving support.

If you know of any parishioners who have been unwell recently, bereaved or who would appreciate a home visit please let the Rector know.
