Our partner, Redeemed Baptist Family Church has also made good use of the torn sample clothing donated to CAST to establish a sewing group that is helping women in the community of Noodsberg to learn new skills and generate an income.
We are so grateful that we could assist our partner, Worship Centre Church in Umbilo, to establish a sewing group training project, training unemployed women, and using clothing donated to CAST to generate an income. This church serves a broad community of refugees from African countries and seeks to help the women to become economically-empowered.
We so appreciate all those who supported CAST this year which helped us to equip our partner churches during very difficult times. We wish you all a blessed and safe Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus

Thab'sile Miya, a member of our partner KwaDabeka Baptist Church , has regained her freedom and independence to live in her own space since CAST was able to assist in renovating her home this year. Having lost her full-time job during the pandemic, she has since found a new occupation serving at the church, and worships God whole-heartedly.

Our community facilitator for our partners, Redeemed Baptist Family Church (Noodsberg) and Chibini Baptist Church in northern rural KZN, had the amazing opportunity to attend Farming God’s Way training in Port Elizabeth to learn more and upskill the farmers in his communities, and was specially chosen to provide narration in isiZulu for the Farming God's Way training videos. We praise God for working through us to serve others
We are so proud of the leaders from our partner church in Mariannridge (outer-west Durban), Kingdom Connect Ministries who have successfully implemented the Sinoxolo Trauma Counselling programme at our CAST Community Centre in the area. This community is sadly plagued by substance abuse, violence, and joblessness which has worsened since the pandemic and recent devastation in KZN. Thanks again to The Warehouse for developing this course that equips us to help others heal
