Attached is a photo of Carlos. He's 4 years old and pictured here with his mum. His mum Themba is going into hospital to die of HIV/AIDS. She wanted to take him and settle him in a place where he would be loved and nurtured in Christ as she herself is a believer. As you can imagine parting company was traumatic. Please pray for this little one and if the Lord burdens your heart to help in some way then do not hesitate to contact us.
Psalm 68:5-6 James 1:27

I felt led to write this small article as an encouragement to those involved in church planting or who partner Moriel in our planting program. In this fallen world we live in its easy to get side tracked and focused on the opposition we receive from the world, the flesh and the devil and we fail to step back occasionally and recognise the joy that new believers receive at their Baptism. yes Yeshua is still in the business of drawing souls to Himself through the leading of the Holy Spirit and it was with real joy and a time of celebration that 6 people from Moriel came through the waters of Baptism and it was a privilege to assist Ps Bernard Mathe in our small pool. One of the people baptisedÃ‚ was Yvonne one of our elderly missionaries who was sprinkled as baby but at 70 now recognises the need to be obedient to our Saviour. Jesus said 'If you love me you obey my commandments', Baptism was a step of real obedience for these people.
Ebyown Childrens Village is still at an early stage. Our problems are at a foundational level, which means there is plenty to do for everyone as we see the site grow in preparation for the arrival of orphans. This means that short term missions are something we want to develop and encourage and no better way to do this is to introduce you to our first visitors from overseas, Ian and Beryl Collins from the UK.
We would like to announce the planting of another Moriel church in South Africa. We led a team from Aletheia community church in Spring's, travelled to the rural town of Thakgalane in Limpopo province to establish 'The Living Christ Bible Church'.
A Look At The Moriel Mission Work Headed by Dave Royle in South Africa
A father of the fatherless and a judge and protector of the widows is God in His holy habitation. God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home in which to dwell. (Psalm 68:5,6a) (Amplified)
By way of introduction my name is Dave Royle and I am the head of the Ebyown (Ebyown is a Hebrew word describing a poor and oppressed person, someone who is in need of advocate) orphanage planted by Moriel Ministries in South Africa.
