Buying on Gumtree sight unseen

I am an ardent Gumtree fan. For those of you who don’t know, it’s an online platform where you can buy and sell things. I’ve bought and sold many things on Gumtree. The drone that we use to record material for our YouTube sermons had to be replaced. We then received a substantial donation from […]

Just pray

If your best friend was struggling financially and you had access to inexhaustible funds, would you give them enough money to keep their head above water? If you had a remedy that could cure your friend’s incurable disease, would you share it? If you had a book that saved your marriage from the divorce court, […]

Just as you are

On the one hand, many people have a problem with Rahab who helped the Israelite spies in Joshua 1. On the other hand, here she’s used as an example: 25The same with Rahab, the Jericho harlot.

Believe for another chance

Many people are struggling. Many businesses are going under and people lose their jobs. People have no income. They have no food. It feels as if the stress is gnawing at you from the inside. Not only financial stress, but stress in relationships and so on as well. What do you do then? At times […]

Up there, my girl. Up there!

We enjoy making a fixed home here on earth. We buy houses and equip them with all the nice things. Nothing wrong with that. Obviously, we can enjoy our time here on earth, but we have to realise that this is only temporary. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob also believed this: 13… and accepted the fact […]
