Pssssst.. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ON ROOIBOS AND CANCER. The latest research confirms that Rooibos, Annique's main product ingredient, has a remarkable impact on cancer, as a preventative measure. A collaborative study by scientists at four international research facilities, found the first clinical evidence that drinking rooibos tea significantly increases the antioxidant capacity in the human body, boosting the body's natural defences. Antioxidants bind with free radicals, neutralizing and preventing them from damaging cells and causing cancer oxidizing cholesterol to clog blood vessels which result in heart attacks or strokes. For a healthy lifestyle look to the rooibos tea for its 37 natural antioxidants, flavonoids and minerals, including an abundant supply of vitamin c. Rooibos increases the level of the most important natural antioxidants in the liver, called gluththione, which means that the liver's antioxidant status is improved.

kiddies corner Activities to keep little hands busy .

Written by Janine Daniel

Toddlers need lots of stimulation. They are constantly on the go and busy. Here are some good activities to include in their daily routine; Playing with a ball. This develops hand/eye co-ordination and the ball can be kicked, rolled, thrown and caught. Art – can be colouring in, sand art, or painting. Just make sure you have lots of newspaper on hand, roll up sleeves and protect their good clothes by putting on an old t-shirt or apron. Sand and water – best done outside in the garden. Let your child play with lots of plastic containers of various shapes and sizes. Blocks – playing with blocks can keep toddlers entertained for ages. The best part is always knocking the blocks over. Puzzles – you can get very easy ones, with only two pieces. Introduce these and gradually move onto puzzles with more pieces. Sticker Books - especially ones of animals. The aim is not to have stickers stuck exactly where they should, but to play. Books and Music CD's – have a special bed time routine, bath, followed by reading a story and playing relaxing music. Cars – all children love cars. Rather opt for sturdy wooden ones. There are a few household items that can keep toddlers busy;

Clothes Pegs – they simply love them and it does wonders for their hand/eye coordination and finger movements. Pots and Pans – this can get rather loud, especially if wooden spoons are added into the mix. Dress up – every home should have a dress up box, keep bits of discarded material, hats, shoes, scarves and props all together. Your toddler will love to dress up and play pretend. Do keep safety at the back of your mind. The rule of thumb is never to give your child toys that can fit into the hole of a toilet roll. Do not give your child small blocks of Lego, coins or marbles until they are a little bit older.

A fun activity to do together is to make play dough. Here is a quick and easy recipe that I made with my daughter last week; 1 Cup Flour ½ Cup Salt 1 Cup Water 1 Tablespoon Water 2 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar Few drops food colouring Combine all ingredients in a pot and stir. Cook over a low heat until a sticky ball forms. Pour into a plastic sealable container and allow to cool. Roll and test consistency. If it is too sticky, sprinkle a bit of extra flour onto the dough

kiddies corner You should also get out with your toddler. Join a Mom's group – and meet up once a week. Sign up for Toddler Classes, like KinderMusiek, Clay Art and Moms and Tots Enrol your child in swimming classes Pack a picnic and go to the park, beach or zoo Enjoy this special time with your children. They will only be this small for such a short period of time. And if you feel like you need a break, don't be afraid to take one.

Wild Women on the Run

Twenty women from East London and surrounding areas recently completed a 90km gruelling 3-day trail run along the Wild Coast from Glen Eden to Mazeppa Bay to raise funds for charity. It was Wild Women Jessica Kriel who kept us constantly updated on the progress during the 3 day event, which we shared on our Facebook page and on Twitter. Before the event I asked her how much training she and the other women had done in preparation for the event. Jessica replied "ALOT!I ran at least 4 times a week; all the women have tried to focus on back-to-back training of 3 long runs in a row (15-20km a day) as this prepares your body - well sort of.�

Wild Women on the run started on Thursday 21 March and ended on Sunday 23 March. Day one, the women departed in the early hours of morning on Human Rights Day from Glen Eden beach and ended 30km away at Pullins Bay near Haga-Haga. The second day involved a long pull of 36km from Pullins Bay to a cottage near Trenneries. The third and final day ended at Mazeppa Bay Hotel, with a total distance of 90km of beach, cattle paths and off - road trails having been traversed over the 3 days. The main challenges the ladies faced was the soft sand and some nasty blisters. A couple of injuries were sustained, but nothing that the Wild Women were not able to overcome!. The women who participated this year were very diverse! They ranged in age from 25-50, from novice runners to well-known ultra-distance runner, Kim Van Kets (co-founder of Wild Woman), who said:- "This year's Wild Women have all inspired me and have reinforced my belief that running is so much more than what it seems. It can be the catalyst to change lives, build confidence, form life-long friendships, bring us closer to's the most rewarding thing ever for me when people (especially women) get it!�

WUEC WUECPage Page16 22

Jessica's comment after the event:- "I thoroughly enjoyed this year as well, an amazing bunch of ladies. What stands out most is how much the ladies relaxed, enjoyed the adventure and appreciated every beauty along the way in good spirits. Some being quite comical and kept us entertained, we really did have fun! The end which once again came with lots of tears of joy and an enormous sense of pride and accomplishment is another stand out factor for me. Wild Women to me is about getting ladies to believe in themselves, set aside time for themselves and to accomplish this great goal, running lessons are very applicable to life and so it is very good for the soul, especially out in Gods beautiful creation, it is also a time of fellowship for the ladies and all are supportive and motivating, it is just amazing. And most importantly because we are so blessed to be able to run this event" Jess stated she would definitely do it again!!! And can't wait for next year! Through their exciting adventure they have been able to raise in excess of R60 000.00 for two local charities that are close to their hearts; African Angels and Bus Fare Babies.

religion matters Staying Positive in this negative World. The need for wisdom.

James 1v5 says

“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” The “ Sons of Issachar” from 1 Chron 12v32. “And the children/sons of Issachar, who were men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” had the wisdom to know what to do.

the tribes should get together and crown David as the new King of Israel. The ability to correctly analyze situations is what leadership is all about. Those who have this quality tend to lead, and those who lack it end up following. Every generation needs leaders who can understand the times and know what to do in the light of them. So that needs to be our prayer in our own generation—“Lord, help us to understand the times, and to know what to do.”

This is not a matter of simply understanding the Bible, as crucial as that is. Rather, it is knowing how to apply the truths of God's Word to the issues of our day. Why do people think the way they do? What are the real needs of people, as contrasted to their merely felt needs? How can we be effective with the Gospel by correctly perceiving the uniqueness of our times? How can The word understanding is the Hebrew word we apply the truth of Scripture in a meaningful binah, which means “to have insight or to act way to our generation? Whatever your situation with prudence.” According to Strong's today, whatever might lie before us for 2013, will Concordance, it comes from a root verb that you ask God for His wisdom to lead your means to separate something mentally, and circumstances with truth, or will you just stay in distinguish its parts. The word reflects the darkness and allow them to lead you, and for you presence of intelligence and wisdom, even just to follow wherever they might take you. Our cunning and skill, in the process. In other words, this is not just an understanding of the facts, but a future is not entirely in our own hands, we know skillful analysis of what something truly means. It that, but we do have a part to play. Choose life, choose God and choose wisdom and truth. is recognized that wisdom is the ability to know what to do in any given circumstance. Knowledge God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not be afraid, however, is knowing how to do it, how to even if the earth is shaken and mountains fall into implement and carry out that wisdom. The sons of Issachar had analyzed their times and the ocean depths, even if the seas roar and rage, had perceived correctly what those times were all and the hills are shaken by the violence. There is a river that brings joy to the city of God, to the about. They knew what to do, because they sacred house of the Most High. God is in that city, understood what was happening. It was obvious and it will never be destroyed, at early dawn he to them that Saul had not been a good king and will come to its aid. Nations are terrified, there was no established dynasty to keep the kingdoms are shaken, God thunders, and the kingship in the tribe of Benjamin. David had emerged as a real leader by virtue of his character earth dissolves. The LORD Almighty is with us, the and ability. He was the type of king Israel needed God of Jacob is our refuge. during those turbulent times. Furthermore, hadn't God said that the scepter would come out of the tribe of Judah? David was from that tribe and was indeed fully qualified to be the king. The sons of Issachar knew exactly what to do. All of

This is truth, Hallelujah !!! So lets walk in victory. Much love and friendship, Deon (0837894601) and Charlene(0837894601) – Gateway Christian Fellowship. WUEC Page 30

giving back East London Animal Welfare They started over a year ago as just a simple face-book group, but because of the great demand they decided to take the jump from the virtual world right into the real world.

How can you help? Support their fundraising events or become a volunteer!

What do they need? Anything and everything. Contact Gail on 0437433608 or email for further details.

East London Animal Welfare is made up of a diverse group of people most of which have their own careers, jobs or business's. Their love of animals is what has brought them together. It's really easy to read a newspaper/magazine or to browse the internet and read about the plight of the many abused, neglected and unwanted animals in our society today. However its quite another thing to be brave enough to physically decide to try and do something to help!! Want a chance to make a difference? EL Animal Welfare welcome your help, advice, and would love you to also join as a volunteer. They host many functions to raise funds. These funds are often used to pay-off vets bills for the under-privileged, spaying and neutering of animals and feral cats, purchasing of food for cats/dogs etc, especially for their feeding programme which run alongside meals-onwheels, enrichment and bird toys for the East London Zoo animals including out-reach programmes at informal settlements to provide them with pet food and flea/tick control medicine and so much more.

East London Animal Welfare tries to help whatever animal they can, from domestic to wild, cats to horses, the ones who can't speak for themselves. WUEC Page 31
