Maboloka Christmas Party

What another great year and how fitting to end the year on a high! Our annual Christmas party was once again a successful event.
I am stunned at how the numbers keep growing each year and how each year God blesses us with donations both from corporate and individual households.
Our journey started from Corpus Christi with vehicles loaded with presents, eatables, pottery goodies and lots of elves to assist us with our event of the year!!
What a delight to arrive to the sound of children singing, clapping and dancing to welcome us to their humble abode.
The elves immediately got to work preparing the lovely eats for the kids and caregivers at the Haven….what a spread…
While the kiddies were enjoying the lovely snacks and lunch, our resident Father Christmas Graham Harrington was dressed in his attire to delight the kids and hand over their presents! Oh what joy on the faces when he appeared…followed by more songs of praise and a few tears from children who were afraid of Father Christmas.
Huge and special thanks to the following sponsors for making this Christmas party possible and special:
Woolworths Faerie Glen&Centurion; Susan Ball; Swazi (Pharmacy Direct);Bright Beginnings Pre-School; Staff of CTP Packaging:Parishioners of Corpus Christi
As we open our hearts and pockets for the Christmas party each year, we should be mindful to do so throughout the year, the Haven is in serious need of necessities for their kitchen and well as for the school. The food parcels feed approximately 80 percent of the children’s families at the school, it’s important that we make this part of our monthly giving. As God blesses us we should be a blessing to others.
As we departed our hearts were filled with joy and gratitude to be able to share the most humbling experience with the special children and caregivers of Maboloka Haven.
My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless the work that our team is doing, which is deeply humbling!
Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

Tumelong Wall of Thanksgiving and Remembrance

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Tumelong Mission a 70 brick wall was built in the grounds of the head office building at St Saviours Church, Pretoria West. Each brick is available to purchase for R1000, and the name or any inscription you would like is written on the brick.
Originally a request was made to all the parishes in Pretoria to buy a brick as a remembrance and thanksgiving of the Tumelong Mission to help raise funds towards the work carried out in an effort to “creating a healthy and sustainable society, free from HIV/Aids”. The money for the bricks will benefit all of the Tumelong Mission projects.

For anyone who has not yet purchased a brick it is not too late, parishes and individuals are all welcome to donate or buy a brick.
Please help support Tumelong so Tumelong can help the needy across the Diocsese.

For more information on how to buy a brick please contact Modise (pictured above by the wall) his email is: or telephone (021) 327 5129.
