PROJECT PHILIP - is our outreach to help feed the poor in South Africa. Named after Dr. Philip Ray (his picture is below). He was a very Godly Baptist minister who pastored in South Africa for many years. It was reported that as a mere boy of  8, upon returning from school Philip would go to his room for prayer before speaking to any member of the family. He and his wife Peggy hosted Corrie Ten Boom in their home while Corrie was recovering from a virus in South Africa. Both Peggy and Philip were responsible for helping to get Christian TV in South Africa through TBN, truly, a blessing from God. Another great Dr. Philip Raysacrificial thing they have done was to feed the poor, especially the elderly. By denying themselves fancy banquets and eating out, they would send money to feed the poor. Over the years, they sent a large amount of money to help feed the hungry in South Africa. We want to give aide and help the poor more in the future. Dr. Philip Ray and Peggy moved back to America some time ago, and we became good friends. They have always encouraged me in the work of South Africa. Dr. Ray went home to be with Jesus four weeks after my daughter Anna was taken from me. We have decided to honor Philips life by naming our program - PROJECT PHILIP. 

We also want to help Rhema Bible Church's Hands Of Compassion ministry who has 70 soup kitchens in South Africa. They are currently feeding 15,000 people on a weekly basis.   South Africa has a high rate of unemployment, and there are many hungry people.  Matt 25:35 "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me drink." Let's all help where we can. Remember, Matt 25 is our responsibility. 

You can help sponsor a soup kitchen with any amount of funds. 100% of those funds will go directly to purchase food in South Africa. 

Also needed are bags of rice, beans, canned goods, and any dried soup stock.
