I can’t even walk without Him This week’s message - Christ Alone Ministries [] It is said that around 1974 Colbert Croft Joyce was sitting in front of the piano. At and his wife Joyce were going through a one in the morning, when he felt like he could not go on any more the Lord gave particular difficult time. They were facing the most difficult storm, Colbert a song. the darkest valley. They had nowhere to go, He sat down and wrote the song: nowhere to turn. They felt that they I thought that number one would always couldn’t go any further. Beaten down, they be me. I thought I could be what I wanted felt deserted and alone with not a friend to be. I thought that I could build on life’s sinking sand. But I can’t even walk without left in the World. Colbert said that his heart so broken, he You holding my hand. was feeling so discouraged that he could I thought that I could do a lot on my own not even pray any more. One night all he I thought I could make it all alone. could say is “Lord, help me” while praying. I thought of myself as a mighty big man. But I can’t even walk without You holding my hand. Lord I can’t even walk without You holding my hand. The mountains too high and the valleys too wide. Down on my knees I’ve learn to say Lord I can’t even walk without You holding my hand. The Lord said to Isaiah: For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall the covenant of My peace be removed, says Jehovah who has mercy on you. (Isaiah 54:10) When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; nor shall the flame kindle on you. (Isaiah 43:2) For I, Jehovah your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13) Do not fear; for I am with you; be not dismayed; for I am your God. I will make you strong; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10) Just maybe today you need to hear this promise again. Just hold His hand!

Smart libraries to empower the community

The launch of the Mzansi Libraries Online (MLO), dubbed the digital knowledge hub, envisages a literate and technologically advanced community of young and old citizens making use of technology at public libraries to improve their lives. On Tuesday, September 19, Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Community Services lead the off icial launch of the Mzansi Libraries Online Project at three of the city’s libraries concurrently - in Tsakane and the main event at the Germiston Library. The overall objective of MLO is to empower South African communities to improve their lives through the provision of increased free access to information,

particularly by children, youth, the unemployed, women, the elderly, and people living with disabilities - especially the visually impaired. The new digital knowledge hubs will have advanced facilities such as: Increased social and economic benefits through access to health, education and economic information. On-line registrations for university registrations, on-line studies and human resources applications. Enhanced skills and capacity among library staff for a better service to the community. Community training programmes. A sustainable public sector that will continue to meet the needs of the community into the future.

What are you leaving behind? Elize and I were privileged to be able to attend the NG Lente Konferensie in Pretoria this week. As always it was a blessing and we came away being inspired by many of the talks we heard over the three-day conference. One of the talks was on Spirituality and the lecturer basically challenged us to identify ourselves and to see who we were in this mixed up world of ours. This all sounds fine but as we sit and think about who we are in Christ (after all we are Christ followers and as Christians we call ourselves children of God). But here is a question that was posed and that I found to be quite a challenge. The 500-year anniversary of Martin Luther and the reformation resulting in his work is being celebrated this year. Never mind about 500 years but what about 100 years from now. Will ANYONE remember you and the work that you did for God? The truth is that we are all called to make a difference for God, are you making a difference and if yes what is the difference? I believe that the world has taken on us a journey AWAY from God instead of towards God. I believe that we are falling to the temptation of the world and in so doing God and His instruction is being ignored. Take some time to think about the basics laid out in the Bible. We call the Bible the guide to life – but do we listen to the wisdom found in the Bible. Take some time to study the book of James and see how

From the desk of Rev Ray Goddess

Rev Goddess, Heidelberg Methodist Church close you manage to come to what we are taught in this life changing book. How about looking at Hebrews 13: 1-5. How close to you come to living a life laid out in these verses? I guess we need to take a long hard look at who we are and what we are leaving behind. To do the work of God and be effective in His work we need to start with ourselves and thereafter those around us will be influenced by our love for Jesus and this will make a difference in the world. Get this right and I believe that you will be remembered for a long time (maybe not a full 100 years – but for a long time). Take time to reflect on who you are in Christ – and ask God to help change you into the person He has designed you to be.

Dit is met afgryse dat die boeregemeenskap van Gauteng daagliks moet verneem van nog ‘n plaasaanval, nog ‘n oom en tannie wat op brutale maniere vermoor en geskend is. Volgens talle Afrikaners is dit ‘n kommer dat daar geen vordering gemaak word in die stryd teen plaasgeweld nie. Ongeag hoeveel energie en tyd die polisie in misdaadvoorkoming spandeer bly die frekwensie van plaasgeweld steeds hoog. Daar is huidig geen positiewe oplossing om dit te bekamp nie. Prioriteit moet dringend gegee word aan plaasbeveiliging deur beide boere en boereverenigings aan die een kant en die polisie aan die ander kant. Talle politieke partye eis dat die regering meer moet doen om die aanvalle op boere stop te sit. Die polisie moet gereeld terugvoer aan die Menseregtekommissie lewer oor misdaad in boeregemeenskappe en die departement van justisie moet dié gemeenskappe by sy program wat die regte van kwesbare groepe bevorder, insluit. Talle mense vra wat gedoen kan word om ons land veiliger te maak. Ons moet egter begin om onsself te beveilig binne die wettige raamwerk. Buurt- en plaaswagte is ‘n bewese konsep, wat misdaad saam met die polisie en private sekuriteit kan hokslaan. Indien veiligheidsstrukture nie beskikbaar is nie, kan mense AfriForum kontak om hulle by te staan in die vestiging van strukture, of verwys na strukture waarby hulle kan aansluit. Almal is dit eens dat die ou kommando-stelsel goed gewerk het, omdat daar reageer is op inligting wat in die gemeenskappe ingesamel is. Volgens kenners was doelgerigte optrede en daadwerklike misdaadvoorkoming met die kommando’s behaal. Inligting is ingesamel en misdadigers is geteiken voordat aanvalle kon plaasvind. Dit is die les wat ons kan leer uit die stelsel. Hulle het geweet hoe laat aanvalle gewoonlik gebeur en watter gebiede is die meeste blootgestel. Almal soek na oplossings wanneer gaan die erns van die saak gesien word en daar daadwerklik opgetree word. Die uitspraak van die artikel weerspieël nie noodwendig die

Residents urged to Suicide chilling challenge continue saving water! With the spring season upon us, temperatures begin to rise along with the demand for water and water-using activities – like gardening and swimming. In this light, the City of Ekurhuleni urges its residents and businesses alike to focus their efforts on implementing simple changes that will go a long way in reducing water demand.

267 SKAKEL 083 267 6198


Rand Water has also requested municipalities to curb water use during this period, which is traditionally when consumption is at its peak. The bulk water supplier has implemented Stage 1 of their protocol for the operation of the bulk water distribution network. This stage calls on municipalities to implement measures to balance the supply and demand for water to mitigate the risk of water interruptions. To this end, the City is putting in place interventions such as the reduction of water pressure, prioritizing the repair of major pipe bursts as well as leak detection and repair. “Residents could therefore experience low water pressure, especially during peak demand times between 05:00 and 08:00 and 17:00 and 20:00,” says Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe. The City is also aware that many industries have entered their peak production season. In order to ensure that there remains a constant supply of water; businesses are requested to continue in their endeavours to reduce the demand on the municipal water supply system. Although water restrictions were lifted in March, irrigation activities are prohibited between the hours of 07:00 and 17:00. For tips on how to save water visit http://

What is the Blue Whale online suicide game? And while the media claims the game has been responsible for the deaths of 134 teenagers, this information is unverified. After signing up, the user is assigned a curator. This curator then issues tasks over the next 50 days. On the 50th day, the controlling manipulators behind the game reportedly instruct the youngsters to commit suicide. The horrific tasks include self-harming, watching horror movies and waking up at unusual hours, but these gradually get more extreme. These tasks can be anything from listening to a certain song, watching unsettling videos and waking up at odd times, to much more extreme requests such as cutting words or whale symbols into one’s skin. “It is a formalised kind of bullying, the purpose of Blue Whale is to break down the teen so they commit suicide,” he said. Goldstuck added that more should be done to address the issues surrounding teen depression. Not only can users download the game online, but reports claim that those interested in playing the game can find curators on social media sites. The game is reported to be invented by 21year-old Philipp Budeikin from Russia. The FPB said it issued the warning because its primary mandate was to protect children and vulnerable members of society against exposure to disturbing and harmful material. The South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag) says it is aware of the Blue Whale game. The group is carefully monitoring the situation, but warns that parents themselves should be watchful and prepare and control their children’s access to the internet. The Blue Whale suicide game is believed to be a social media group which is encouraging people to kill themselves. There are hundreds of thousands of posts relating to the sick trend on Instagram. ”What is Instagram doing to stop the game spreading? Instagram has started showing users a warning when they search for pictures relating to Blue Whale. When you search for the term on the network, a notif ication appears which reads: “Posts with words or tags you’re searching for often encourage behaviour that can cause harm and even lead to death. “If you’re going through something difficult, we’d like to help.” But directly underneath the post it gives the option to “see posts anyway”. There are several shocking pictures of self-harm and even jokes about the sick game once you click through. The NSPCC say children should remember

not to follow the crowd and not feel pressured into doing anything that makes them feel unsafe. A spokesperson said: “Children can find it difficult to stand up to peer pressure but they must know it’s perfectly okay to refuse to take part in crazes that make them feel unsafe or scared. “Parents should talk with their children and emphasise that they can make their own choices and discuss ways of how to say no. “Reassuring a child that they can still be accepted even if they don’t go along with the crowd will help stop them doing something that could hurt them or make them uncomfortable. In Kenya, the Film and Classif ications Board has banned the game as they believe two recent suicides in the country can be blamed on these challenges. The Board's CEO Ezekial Matua says they received complaints from parents about children Matua says from what it knows it's not an application that you download but rather a game that people start. He insists it is real and it is dangerous. Authorities in Nairobi have also contacted the local Film and Publications Board (FPB) to warn it about the dangers teens could face. But Nechama Brodie - the head of Tri-Fact training and research at Africa Check says there is nothing to suggest such an app or website exists. The real issue is teen suicides Despite the veracity of these claims about Blue Whale, the real issue is why troubled teens choose to take their own lives and why they would seek out other people in similar situations. Commenting on the reportage and claims of Blue Whale University of Cape Town lecturer and commentator Jacques Rousseau writes that "everybody should be particularly attentive to not encouraging mystical thinking about life and its travails." He further asks: "So, if you’re going to amplify Blue Whale, your first responsibility is surely to de-mythologise it, and to emphasise agency rather than buying into the narrative that there is an app that might kill you, or cause you to kill yourself?" Counselling psychologist Jeremy Bayer says it's important to discover the internet with your child or teenager. Parents need to set rules when it comes to social media. There have now been reported cases in several parts of Europe, South America and more recently in Kenya where the game has apparently been banned. What can you do? It's almost impossible to try and stop a game, app, challenge or chat group from being accessible and even if social media sites are able to do so, a new game or app will soon emerge.

Excessive rabbits to be donated to the zoo The excessive number of rabbits estimated to be over 2 000 at the Ekurhuleni’s Benoni Bunny Park has forced the municipality to donate them to the Johannesburg Zoo as food for carnivores. The municipality plans to leave only 50 sterilised rabbits homed in separate enclosures. The excessive rabbits in the park has presented various challenges such as lack of control over the population growth, which leads to inbreeding and decline in intrinsic immunity, resulting in the outbreak of disease and high parasite loads. “While the practice of free roaming rabbits at Bunny Park is an inherited and accepted management practice, it has however,

became an increasing concern to animal rights organisations in recent years especially in relation to inbreeding. We have decided that from a zoological point of view, this is no longer the best practice,” Ekurhuleni Spokesperson, Themba Gadebe said. The city’s policy on the keeping of livestock, makes provision for the disposal of excess livestock through a number of ways including selling the excess animals and donation of animals. Already, 750 rabbits were sterilised at the cost of R300, 000 and sent to new homes; and despite this costly exercise an estimated 2 000 rabbits remain in the park and it would not be financially viable to attempt to sterilise them all.

Sanral fuel lev y concession The DA welcomes the admission by the South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) that it has all but lost the battle to electronically toll Gauteng’s roads and that it is open to alternative funding methods to fund the roads. Since the inception of the highly contentious e-Toll system on the province’s roads, residents have refused to pay for this stealth tax which underwent virtually no consultation process and was foisted upon motorists in 2013. The DA has always advocated that alternative funding methods be explored to pay for the GFIP. The fuel levy is one of the options that can


be explored. Especially since Gauteng generates the lion’s share of the fuel levy raised. This method will not only be more cost effective and easier on the pockets of Gauteng’s residents than the complex eToll system currently in place, but will also ensure that funds collected are used for their intended purpose, the development of infrastructure – not the lining of offshore accounts. The DA will continue to advocate for the implementation of a fuel levy on Gauteng’s roads instead of electronic tolling which has had a negative impact on the province’s economy.

Having rabbits in the enclosure will also help the municipality’s plans to plant pastures without rabbits eating them. The overpopulation has caused severe damage to the land and decimated the flora of the park The city is in process of upgrading the park at the cost of R7 million in the 2015/

16 and 2017/18 financial years. Currently the city has dredged all the dams in the park, did a lot of internal fencing and installed some of the irrigation. The next phase includes planting of pastures, expanding the irrigation system and upgrading the animal shelters.

Guptas destroy Gauteng business Confession from a saved woman

The infamous Gupta family have struck once again, this time crippling a Gauteng business that supplied the family with much needed equipment to continue operations at their controversially acquired Shiva Uranium mine in Klerksdorp. Quarry Master, situated in Springs, Ekurhuleni was contacted in 2015 by Varun Gupta who sought to utilize the company’s expertise to repair a rock crushing machine. Quarry Master took up the job but indicated that repairing the machine would be of no use and that a replacement unit should be installed. Varun Gupta insisted that the company do the repair job, despite being informed the repair would carry no warranty. Quarry Master repaired the machine and sent a technical team onsite to monitor the system for a period of 12 hours, as per the request of Varun Gupta. Suspiciously, when these 12 hours were up, the machine “broke” and Varun refused to pay for the work carried out – including other goods that were purchased from Quarry Master. When Quarry Master sought legal recourse, Varun Gupta indicated that they would counter sue R500 000 out of pocket, and with suppliers breathing down their necks, Quarry Master was not in a position to take the matter further. Subsequent to this event, the company has had to down-scale its work force and its reputation with its suppliers has been badly tarnished. This is yet another example of how cronyism and corruption are killing small businesses in South Africa. Without the political will to tackle this scourge head-on, more jobs will be lost in an ever shrinking economy.

For 3 years I have hurt, betrayed and lied to my husband. I have committed adultery, not by accident, but because of anger, and that is even worse because it was planned. Not that adultery can ever be an accident! He loved me so much that he took me back! He forgave me, loved me, trusted me, but NO that was not enough for me. I have kept in contact with this other person, texting him instead of spending time with my husband. Went on weekend trips leaving my husband at home. But for 3 years I kept up with this sick twisted game, failing my loving husband, time and time again. Till my husband came to a point where he was so hurt, devastated and just sick of my never-ending betrayal, that he had no choice but to ask me to move out of his life. Then I realized what I have lost, my loving, caring husband. What have I done!! I have tried to get him back, but he gently, yet firmly stood his grounds, the pain was just to unbearable for him to give me another chance. I have started to do some soul searching, back tracking my steps to the person I once knew I was. Went to church one Sunday morning for the second time in 3 years… And there, that moment during worship and prayer, it hit me, so hard that I’ve started crying with shame. I did not lose myself during this time, I have lost God along the way. That morning I have asked the Lord for yet another chance. He is a God that specializes in giving second chances. Only He can help me put the past where it belongs, and renew me completely so that I will live my life for people to see what the Lord has done for me. I have not given up on my marriage. I want my husband to love, care and trust me again, not for who I was, but for who I have Stockists of Steel become in Christ.

SA naelloop atleet ‘n Dag saam Wayde van Niekerk Die Suid Afrikaanse atleet, Wayde van Niekerk wat naelloop geskiedenis geskep het, het onlangs ‘n kompetisie geloots op instragram bekend as “heart beat story”. Deelnemers wat ingeskryf het moes hul inspirerende verhaal oor hoekom hulle atletiek as sport gekies het, vertel. Die graad 11 leerling van Hoërskool John Vorster, Michael Cockcroft, het nie op hom laat wag nie en dadelik besluit dat geleenthede soos hierdie aangegryp moet word aangesien hy niks het om te verloor nie. Michael het in graad 10 sy atletiekloopbaan met erns bejeën en in 2017 is hy as beste senior atleet aangewys. Michael vertel dat hy ingeskryf het en ‘n paar dae het gekom en gegaan en geen nuus oor die wenners is aangekondig nie. Wayne het weer ‘n skrywe geplaas om deelnemers te herinner om in te skryf en Michael besluit toe net daar en dan om te vra wanneer word die wenners bekend gestel. Kort hierna het Michael ‘n oproep van Phil Venter, Adidas bemarkings agent ontvang en is ingelig dat die wenner die Maandag aangekondig sal word. Wel so het Maandag aangebreek met doodse stilte en geen nuus. Michael het aanvaar dat hy nie as wenner aangewys is nie. Dinsdag onverwags skakel Phil vir Michael om hom te nooi om aan ‘n adidas advertensie oudisie deel te neem. Die Donderdag is Michael Sandton toe waar hy deur kameras, direkteure en sport administrateure verwelkom is. Michael het

‘n volledige onderhoud gehad om alles wat van hom verwag word uit een te sit. Daarna is hy na ‘n kleedkamer geneem waar die volle adidas reeks met nuwe hardloop tekkies wat uitgetoets moet word aan hom oorhandig is. Die opwindende fotosessie het ‘n aanvang geneem en Michael is aangesê om met die atletiek blokke op die veld presies te doen wat die kameraman hom beveel en direk vir die kamera te kyk sodat die aksie fotosessie geskiet kan word. Michael moes gefokus wees en homself voorneem dat hy aan die Olimpiese spele deelneem. Met die afsak in die blokke het 2 ander atlete hul posisies langs Michael ingeneem. Michael het dit nie gewaag om links of regs te kyk nie maar net sy oë op die kamera gehou. Die afrigter het Michael opdrag gegee om te kyk wie sy opponente is teen wie hy gaan hardloop. Groot was sy verbasing toe hy merk dat Akani Simbine links en Wayde van Niekerk regs hul posisies ingeneem het. Michael vertel dat dit hier was waar sy hartklop vinniger as 106 geklop het het. Warren Whiteley het Michael saam genooi na ‘n winkelsentrum waar hy R10 000 se adidas geskenkbewyse ontvang het en die hele dag saam met die twee supersterre Akani en Wayde kon deurbring. ‘n Volledige perskonferensie was volgende. Michael is ook ‘n laaste vraag gevra wat die regisseur op Supersport wil gebruik. Michael het nooit gedink dat sy inspirerende verhaal die wen storie sou wees. Hy vertel dat hierdie die beste dag van sy lewe was.
