Today is the second week of a bit of unrest here in South Africa.

Last week Tuesday the strike started with roads being blocked, schools closed, and shops locked. We had hoped the end was near however just discovered today that it is continuing indefinitely.
We could use your prayer support…

The reason for the strike is multi-faceted but the request is that the Mayor V. Tshabalala step down.

He has been accused of many things including misappropriation of funds which has led to services having slowed or stopped in many areas.  Additionally,  residents in Qwa Qwa find themselves without essentials such as water and electricity.

The situation is desperate and word is that schools, nor work, will be resumed until he steps out of office. Which to date, he has refused to do.

In addition, at this moment a committee is in session to determine whether President Zuma will be asked to step down. If he refuses again (he has twice so far) the matter will then go to Parliament.

In all of this uncertainty I can assure you we are safe.

We are taking precautions. Which means our Flashpoint classes, Workshops, Life meetings and ministry events have been put on hold temporarily until life settles.

We pray that will be this very week. Will you join us?
