We need some affordable spices, please.

Hi guys …. at the moment we spend a lot of money on spices and it does not last long because the pots are huge.
Chef is frustrated because he runs through spice and is not cheap.

Any suggestions we can get bigger size spices cheaper, as well as soup and stew thickeners.
Thank you smart people …
Pretoria north area please

I can only plant a seed, not do EVERYTHING!

Last night a street child came up to me, he said he got a job all by himself as a car salesman.

I think this street people are more scared of me than for the police because if they see me they quickly explain why they did not come for work or tannie, I’m going to get work tomorrow, tannie, I’ll show you a tannie.

Sometimes they come with lots of stories, and then his mate helps him, do not help you lie, the tannie knows aaaalles…

When I get discouraged, I remember reading somewhere … Just plant, it’s all that God expects, just plant the seed, He does not want me to do everything from start to finish … I’m struggling with it …

Why?

Please explain to me why some white street boys (who we know are hard users) have now fear of the police.

They do not even hide their drugs when we try to scare them … so full of themselves.

One thing you must know, we love our street people, and as you know, I will defend them with all of me in the name of righteousness, but we will never look away if crime is committed.

These young men need to be shaken up!!

I do my part, I give food, I seek work, I am encouraging.  If none of this works and theft and robberies continuous, then the law must over.

Ns..The guys that I speak do not look homeless, they do not drink Vuva and Danie, no, they look good, are cocky and arrogant … (their whole attitude shouts, nobody can touch me, ugggg)

We need a room, please.

Hi guys, this guy recently got a permanent post in Gezina, unfortunately he has to come to the north to sleep on the street because he knows the people here, he asked us to look out for a more affordable room / wendy anything in Gezina, please … around R500 a month, please share in Gezina area.

Thank you very much, he is a honey, we have known him for a long time.

I know where your daughter sleeps tonight. Do you?

Madam, your daughter is only 21 …
I also preached to her tonight, just as you have already done many times.
I would like to mention to you with children, especially daughters, kicking them out to “correct themselves”: Make sure you know what’s happening in Pretoria North, because you have no clue, mom.

And if you’re lying awake and worrying tonight, call me to tell you where she’s going to sleep tonight.

Oh yeah, and if you’re hoping she’s going to get her right by sending her into the streets, together with the people she hangs out with tonight, it’s all the way to ruin.

The absolute highlight of the week !!!!

The absolute highlight of the week !!!!

Where do you start thanking people for such a love gesture?
Sarie Minnaar took in oupa Desmond without conditions …

I have honestly never met anyone who is so comfortable with people, this man is treated like a king for the first time, and he deserves it, for many years he worked very hard here in the North. After his stroke everything changed and he was forced into the street.

Yesterday we went  to pick up his last good stuff that he stores everywhere for safety – these old people are abused everywhere.

He borrowed a thousand rand on his SASSA last month as he did not receive his.  Even though two  ladies on the group donated almost the exact amount to him, he was so robbed … he has to pay back R450 every month until June’s, now that is bad, it’s almost double. I hope but his information is wrong.

This is a concern as it forces old people to keep borrowing to keep going, while they are getting so little already.

He also saved the rest of his money with the vegetable Tannie, got there, only to be told she only had R160 of the R1000 she “kept safe” for him ..

He puts his good walking stick and clothes in another place, and the little boy did not want to fetch it.

I had to cry when Grandpa Desmond said “no more 5 o clock” getting up and did not know where to go.

Yesterday he slept almost the whole day because for the first time in many years he was allowed.

No elderly person earn to spend their last years on a shop stoep to be chased and humiliated.

He was so so excited about the television yesterday, and he has to get used to the fact that his belongings are safe.

Sarie, your days will be blessed for what you did here, I’m convinced.

Thank you for all the donations, we were able to quickly set up his room without running around after bedspreads for bed and bedding, bedside table, TV etc.

Thank you, Lord, for sending this angel on our way.

Our Angel of the Day!

Our angel of the day !!!!
Santjie Fouche had to tire herself completely driving around for others today!

We searched for this morning for transport to Anna to her husband’s funeral, as the transport originally organised had to be cancelled due to car problems.

Santjie Fouche lives in Montana, but was already in Centurion, left from there, chased North, escorted Anna, assisted her at the funeral and brought her back to the North,

This remarkable woman simply decided not to give up when I said it was too late and too far … she simply decided to do what should be done, no doubt, without excuses.

Just imagine if we had more such leaders …

Uncle Willie is going through deep waters …

Uncle Willie is going through deep waters …
Uncle Willie came to Pretoria with the promise of work which unfortunately did not realise. His mother stays in a hostel here in the north.

This is something that is very common nowadays, people are offered work and do not realize what that person gives up for it, travel to the palce of employment, and only to be told “Sorry we will keep you up to date or in mind …”.

His wife is waiting a hole without water in anticipation, and Willie sleeps on the street ..

Please people, can we not help this man – he knows.

Willie can do petrol & diesel mechanic work, CO2 welding, code 14 and PDP and have already made furniture from pallets …

This man will only be to your benefit, and it’s only him and his wife ..
Please help, he is despondent …

We urgently need to speak with this young man!

If anyone sees the guy, please guys I’d like to help him get a job, he does not have a working phone, if you see him and you have an old phone for him, send his number for me please. He wanders in Pretoria North  and sleep on the street where he is allowed.

And if you think it’s a tall order, see how the Lord works, because he’s sending someone on his way, with a phone, and we’re going to get him out because people do not belong in the street.
