In 2006 we had the privilege of partnering with Thabsile Thwala and other like minded ministries to establish The Counseling Center in Manzini, Swaziland. Today this ministry, under the covering of The Fortress, continues to minister to the rejected, abused and hurting. To those who long for peace and hope. It is with much joy that Thabsile looks back at what the Lord has done through this ministry, and we look forward to the year ahead.
HIV and Aids is rampant in Swaziland. Consequently, children are frequently left as orphans. If they do not have family willing to take them in, they are left on their own. After being made aware of this problem we partnered with The Fortress ministry, and Thabsile Twala to build an orphanage. In 2010 a partnership was formed between His Hands Support Ministries and The Fortress, facilitated by believers from the Presque Isle Wesleyan Church. Now for a small monthly payment of $30 you can help an orphaned child with their living expenses or with their school fees and help change their life! 100% of your sponsorship payment goes to the child in need, to the orphanage and to the school. None of it goes toward the administrative expenses of this program here in the United States.
With economic crisis in the country, many organizations are no longer able to help feed the children. Many of the children have struggled with malnutrition for years. The Ebenezer Feeding Station was established not only to feed the children, but through amazing volunteers, to provide basic education skills using the Bible and Christian songs as their tool. As economic times continue to deteriorate, more and more children find their way to this community. Our goal as a church is to continue to partner with this ministry so that we meet the physical need of feeding the hungry, while also meeting the spiritual need of sharing the gospel of Jesus.
