We may say to ourselves, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Receive your blessings, recognize your blessings and give thanks for them and bless others. Your blessings will be multiplied.
Pay gratitude for what you get from God and other people, and give in return for your rich blessings.
God loves a cheerful giver. May God help us manifest His love and compassion in our lives.
May we never forget the plight of others in our families, in our community, in our country and indeed in the world.
The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing. As of today, 15 October 2014, the young man Chiyembekezo and his family shout joy and bless you for supporting Chiyembekezo and enable him to stay in secondary school. I am happy to inform you all that we have managed to raise MK110,000 to settle Chiyembekezo’s school fees deficit. Better still, the contributions and a few concrete pledges make it such that Chiyembekezo’s are covered until he finishes secondary school education. Bravo!
For all your efforts and contributions to Chiyembekezo’s cause through Thondwe Youth Skills Development Organization (THOYODO) and those who, in different ways, helped me not to give up as I sent out appeals for Chiyembekezo’s support, may God bless you all abundantly in ways that you never imagined. May He add more where you drew from so you can bless others.
Thank you Team Chiyembekezo. You prove that Ubuntu Is Real.
Friday, 17 October 2014, was the final deadline given by Chiyembekezo’s Headmaster at Likuni Boys but your generosity kept him safe from being kicked out of school. His family would only worry about upkeep, study materials and others; while he would concentrate on improving his performance and not worry about being kicked out if school. God bless you and may you do the same for others in need as we Organize Against Poverty.
To all of us, let us lift up our communities, one family at a time. Please do it in your community.
