SELECTED pupils at Kuyasa Combined, Mtjobo Primary and Dambuza Primary Schools were treated to brand new uniforms last week when the Methodist Church Port Alfred Extension Society visited them.

Last Friday morning TotT was invited to Dambuza Primary School to the handover of uniforms to five deserving pupils who come from poorer families in the area.

In a heartfelt ceremony, ministers and lay people said prayers and sang hymns, thanking God for the privilege of being able to assist those in need of help before delivering spanking new shirts and blouses, jumpers, skirts and pants, ties, socks and shoes to the four pupils present – and received big smiles from the children.

“We are here to serve,” said Robin Solwandle who is the circuit steward and who was there on behalf of the Reverend Superintendent, Kamogelo Monoametsi. “We have been visiting schools the entire week. Our duty is to serve.”

Leader of the mission campaign, evangelist Xhoseka Mzinzi, was pleased with the work accomplished by the society. “Let our hearts be touched by the things that touch the heart of God,” he said quoting the mission statement.

Also present was Mthetheleli Maqethuka from Port Elizabeth, who assisted with prayers and in leading the choir. “We intend to continue with this important work each year,” Solwandle said.
