I just want to testify of God’s faithfulness and the favour He has shown me the last couple of days.
I left a week ago to travel to the Randfontein Show to showcase our Christian Clothing. As I was going alone I was planning on sleeping in my stall at night, armed with my blow up mattrass and sleeping bag. When my neighbour at the stall next to me heard about this plan, he invited me to come and sleep at his house. (I only met him that day) I politely declined, saying that I will see how the night goes and maybe take him up on his offer the next day. Needless to say, I did not sleep well that night. Besides noise and cold, the stall lights that were left on the whole night were really not condusive to a good night’s sleep. The next day when I saw my neighbour again, he announced that he had booked me in to a Guesthouse for the whole week on his expense. God just laid it on his heart. I was amazed and very thankful as I slept in luxury the rest of the week!
Furthermore on the 2nd day of the Festival, the Show management contacted me explaining that there is an empty stall next to mine, and would I please consider moving some of my products into it and use the space so that it would not be an empty space – as if I would be doing them a favour…. So I got a double stall at no extra cost.
The response to our Christian Clothing and Cushions was also overwhelming and on Saturday we had record-breaking sales, topping our best day in the business so far. One girl loved the T-shirts so much, she kept coming back with another friend or family member convincing them to buy her another T-shirt for her birthday (which was still to come)
I am truly grateful. We have an awesome Father, who loves to bless His children.
