We would like to give our athletes a more frequent update on the projects that are currently running at S4J. This week we will focus on the Bibles for the Sudan’s project.
One of the key projects of the S4J is Bible distribution to South Sudan and Sudan. We are aiming to sponsor 10000 Bibles to Sudan and 20000 Bibles to South Sudan at R 5 each in 2019. Currently we have 38 athletes raising funds for this project.
The the next batch of Bibles is being printed and readied for the long trip to North Africa. 10 000 Bibles will be going to Sudan and 20 000 Bibles will be delivered to a refugee camp in Kapoeta in South Sudan in the next couple of months.
A limited edition S4J Bible was launched at the recent 2019 50 km Loskop Marathon that took place on 13 April. Chanelle Retief’s father Johann and mother Cindy was at the gazebo to hand out Bibles as the Holy Spirit lead. The theme of S4J at Loskop was: celebrating the Life and Legacy of Pierre & Erika Bantjes. We created a profile so that people who wanted to donate could do so. Betsie Drost, our Financial Administrator, was representing the SSNET office at the tent. It was a most memorable day.
