Warm Greetings to you all,

As we gathered together for our final informal get together as a team and shared our journey personally and then as those called to help facilitate the ministry of  Touch the Hem we realized that it has been a year of valleys and hills.

 There have been mountain top experiences and also deep valleys that we have had to navigate. Due to His abiding Presence, and with the help of His Holy Spirit we are able to celebrate a year in which we have clearly been aware of His love, grace, mercy, protection and abundant provision.

 

We praise the Father of Lights and thank Abba Father who has fulfilled His Word.  

 

Join us in prayer according to 2 Corinthians 2:14

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

We have had a very fruitful year with Touch the Hem taking place in Benoni, Bryanston, Pimville, East London and Secunda.

Each one has been truly blessed with testimonies of healing, reconciliation and restoration that only the Father in His infinite love, grace and mercy could have done.

We know that the work begun in lives will be brought to completion.

 We have been hugely privileged to work and walk alongside the most amazing group of women and men from the various communities who were Torch Bearers. We have been deeply touched by their passion for Jesus and their love, humility and faithful commitment to the communities in which they live and serve.

 

 THANKS TO YOU ALL!!

 

We thank the Lord for the favor, support and blessing that we have had from pastors and ministers of the various churches  and for the all-embracing acceptance of this much needed ministry.

The team has been hosted by a number of folk who have opened their homes and their hearts to us.

THANK YOU!

We are truly blessed to have a wonderful core team of women and men who have been faithful and diligent in in their various capacities of service within the ministry.

 THANK YOU!

There has been a growing awareness of the need for healing of our nation and its people.

South African reportedly has the highest incidence of rape in the world. This ministry helps to create a safe place for women abused either through sexual, and or physical violence or verbal abuse to come for healing prayer of restoration and reconciliation.

To our prayer partners there is a wonderful promise in Psalm 65:11. A psalm sung at the end of a harvest year season.

 

You crown the year with Your goodness,

And Your paths drip with abundance

They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,

And the little hills rejoice on every side,

The pastures are clothed with flocks;

The valleys are also covered with grain;

They shout for joy, they also sing.

 

We are so grateful to each one as they have sown their seeds of prayer into this ministry. Your prayers have also watered the seed we have been able to plant.

Our gracious and loving Lord did the rest.

We have been able to gather and harvest a good crop this year because of your faithfulness.

Till next year…….

Touch the Hem Team.
