September at Jabulani

Isaiah 9:2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Jabulani, we trust you are all well and enjoying Jesus. We have had a great school holiday month with the children and while it was cold we really had a wonderful time as a family together.

Last update we talked about getting solar energy into Jabulani due to the continuing lack of power and only receiving electricity for a few hours per day (in the middle of the night), well we are delighted to inform you that God has done a great miracle and provided ALL the needed finance through some friends scattered throughout the world and enabled us to see the verse above fulfilled (even though we have used it out of context ).

We praise God that the complete solar project is paid for in its entirety and the lights are burning bright 24/7! This is a HUGE blessing, we can do all the washing and ironing for school, cook and wate, shower and clean in the light and when it’s dark. May God bless all our friends who gave and prayed to make this possible we can only say thank you in Jesus' Name!

Special Treat
We took our Jabulani manager Mel and the big 5 children to Victoria Falls for a few days and celebrated Dorothy’s birthday. Everyone had a ball, first time on a plane, first time on the Zambezi, seeing elephants, giraffe, hippo, crocodiles and buffalo, eating mopani worms  and just having a great time seeing God all around us. Thank you to our friends who made this possible, it’s only a dream for so many Zimbabweans and yet we have completed the trip with many wonderful memories, praise the Lord, I know the children will never forget this trip.

The children returned to school and are very busy with school work and sports, they all had good reports from last term and need to put some more effort into their work but all the behavior was great and their teachers spoke highly about their manners, general appearance and kindness to their classmates. The days are very long, they catch the school bus at 6:40 am and don’t return til 4:30 then homework ...please pray they will know God’s help and that this would be a fruitful and successful term for them all.

Ruth is catching up slowly in her school work but please pray she will improve a little faster to enable her to be able to study with her sisters. This is swimming term so please pray they will all be safe in the water.

Dorothy and I will be traveling and fundraising for the next 6 weeks, we are in Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland until October 3rd. If you would like to meet for a coffee or for us to speak at a meeting, just call us please. We will then go to the USA and are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones. Please pray we will have a successful trip- fundraising is hard work all over the world and we are so grateful to EVERYONE who stands with us at Jabulani and helps us in so many ways with our precious children.

God bless you all in Jesus Name.

We still have lots of 2020 Jabulani Calendars for sale so please contact me with your orders so you don’t miss out on the blessing they are.

Love and Appreciation from everyone at Jabulani, Alan and Dorothy
