BETHEL Ministries Church in Kokstad held a gala dinner to raise funds to buy winter clothes to be donated to a home for the aged on Sarturday evening. An amount of just over R3 000 was donated by the congregants and the community.

Church leader Issac Frimpong told Fever that the church is going to buy clothes, blankets and food for the Home of Comfort.

“The church has decided to raise funds for elderly so that when the winter comes they won’t suffer. The church is also doing weekly programs of giving food to street children in Kokstad.”

Dr Matthews Motimele who was the speaker at the evening encouraged people to donate to the poor. “The little you do can make a difference to the poor. Giving is written in the Bible and if you give to the poor, God will bless you double.”

Bronwyn Moneveldt who also attended the dinner expressed his gratitude of what the church has done. He said he wishes that other churches can do the same as Bethel does.
