There was more hope...

Umphakathi Okhathazekile (the Concerned Young People of South Africa) is a non-profit organisation which was started by concerned people of South Africa in 2009 and then registered as an NPO in 2010.

The moral decay in our communities caused such great distress to us that we could not keep silent any longer. We have united in taking a stand against the devastation caused by drugs, immorality, HIV/AIDS, human trafficking, crime, prostitution, pornography and abuse, amongst other evils, in all their forms.

You Are The Light

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matt 5:14-16)

Thoughts for today: 17 May 2020

These words of Jesus to his disciples contains an urgent message for today. Jesus knows the darkness of our world. Yet He has an answer; He has enabled His disciples to bring light.

We have a duty to fulfill.

Currently because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are anxious and depressed. Some are in dire need. Yet, this ‘dark time’ also yields ample opportunity for us to provide light. Maybe a telephone call to encourage someone and hear how they are doing. Or to leave a food parcel at the door of a needy family. There are many things that we can do to bring hope to those around us. Good things that will help them to see the Light and give praises to God.
