Hi all, my name is Debbie, and just experienced a real life miracle, if you have some time on your hands please read my story, it could change your life as well as someone else.

As we all are affected by the current lock down due to the devastating COVID-19 outbreak, there is some people affected so bad that its unimaginable.

On the 1st of April 2020, I saw this article in the PE Herald that totally broke my heart (Herald Article 1st April) The heading was "Our children’s cries of hunger are forcing us to violate lock down rules, say informal settlement residents"

This informal settlement called Lapland on the outskirts of Uitenhage, was so affected by the lock down, that they are literally starving of hunger, as a mom of 4 kids I can't even imagine my children crying of hunger, and I can't do anything about it, because I can't leave my home, don't have any money or don't have anyone that can help me. I just felt that the Lord was talking to me through this article, and he wanted me to see it, I knew I had to do something, I immediately came in contact with the Herald and the police. We have a vegetable processing company that falls under the essential company category, but we are not operating because we supply the fast food industry in the Eastern Cape, and they are all closed due to the lock down, so we had vegetable stock left, we started to make up vegetable parcels as much as we could, we also got another company involved that sponsored cash this made it possible for us to buy food items and we started to make up food parcels as well, we really used all we could and managed to make up 65 food parcels and 65 vegetable parcels, and the police assisted us to distribute it to the Lapland informal settlement.

Guys this parcels was a miracle for these people, as they said that they prayed for food and God answered their prayers and provided. Please read the full article in The PE Herald after they received the parcels (Herald Article 4th April)

We are a small company also struggling in this economic times but that doesn't give us a reason to turn our backs on these people, we all are one in the eyes of God, how can we turn our backs on people starving of hunger, it's in times like this that God use us to be His hands, even if its one person that you help God still uses you to do that.

I see so many videos on Facebook of people making funny videos during this lock down getting thousands of views and likes, still living their lives like all is fine, joking around, guys open your eyes as my eyes was opened, there is people living in shacks smaller than your tool shed with no yard, trapped with no income, starving, they need your help, lets unite and help each other that's the right thing to do in this time of need.

A simple calculation, if we can reach 10000 people with this, and you donate only R5 that's R50 000 if we use that funds the same way we used to make our parcels we can make up more than 600 parcels, imagine how many families we could help, with only R5.

God wants us to unite to stand together, He showed me the way, I truly believe it, now His showing you the way as well.

1 John 3:17-18

"But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth."

SO PLEASE SHARE THIS TO AS MANY FRIENDS YOU KNOW!!
