This is my Blog - Welcome!
It is a great honor for me to share my thoughts with you. Foster parents in South Africa have been isolated long enough. It is time that we take hands and start supporting and encouraging each other.
Let my introduce myself! I am a mother, foster mother and director and founder of Vessels of Mercy for the past 18 years.
My children, ages 18,14,13 and 11 have also made of me a full time mom! Now that my children are not running around in nappies anymore, I have decided to start my full time studies as a social worker in 2021 at the North West University in Potchefstroom.
The race that I am running is a good race. I run my race with my eyes focused on Jesus. He gives me grace to run my race. Every day I need Him more, more than yesterday.
Thank you for reading my blog and I am looking forward to telling you more next time!
With love and hope
Please stop by again. Thank you for your interest!
Did you know? Noah built the ark without seeing any sign of rain, God called Abram, Abraham (father of a multitude) even before he only had one child. Also did you know? Moses had to stretch his rod over the sea, before the waters opened up!
During August 2008 I have also stretched out my hand over the sea. I declared that we will open a place of safety and I believed that Jaco and I will have many children, as the Lord has promised to us, before. January 2009 Vessels of Mercy was inaugurated. On 1 April 2010 we opened our first place of safety in Ikageng. Up-to-date we have had 65 children in that house.
We have made an offer to purchase a house in town, close to Potchefstroom Hospital. I believe with all my heart and soul that God will bless us and that we will look after twice as many children in that house.
I declare that Vessels of Mercy will be prosperous, it’s children shall be blessed, my own children and foster children shall be blessed above all peoples and we will possess the promised land as God has promised us in the passed 15 years. Someone once said: “God’s word in your mouth is just as powerful as God’s word in His mouth!” Therefor I will continue to speak life!!. [Read More…]
