Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

"LIFE IS RELATIONSHIPS"

Johan smith.jpg

 

 Life is Relationships 


The “life is relationships” idea is a God-idea, a God-invention, and  a God-intention.

People are fed up with religiosity. What will make the difference? 
The question should rather be: “Who will make the difference?” The answer is easy - people who follow in the footsteps of Jesus, people sold out to community with Him and others!

People like you and me.

Johan Smit recently visited our ECD Centre in Booysens, Pretoria West where he adressed our GIGGLES Ladies group. He shared insights into his new book "Life is Relationships”. Johan is a trained economist, who has been involved in ministry for the past 30 years, fourteen of which have been full-time at Moreleta congregation.

In his mind-blowing book, Johan unearths deep biblical truths about the essence of relationships. He shows us that God is deeply relational, therefore, we need to follow in His footsteps  and become passionate about His kind of relationships again. Johan guides us masterfully how to grow and nurture such relationships with God and  others.

We are deeply  humbled by people like Johan and other volunteers who donate their time to share these Biblical Truths with our people. It also confirmed that Eleos, based on the principle of MERCY IN ACTION, is a relational charitiy organisation, investing in the lives of people on a full-time basis, to equip them for life. Our projects include:
 Kids Camps
Teen Camps
Agapé Camps
Bible Study Groups
Fun Outreaches
After-school facilities for children from the age of 8 to 18 years 

Visit our website to find out more about each project as well as where you as an individual, your church or your organisation can get involved.

HAVANA NIGHT
Fondsinsameling

350 Gaste, mense van Pretoria tot sover as die Congo, het 4 Augustus hul dansskoene aangetrek. Vrouens het blomme in die hare gesit en mans sigare in die mond en in 'n vrolike luim saamgekom om die jaarlikse ELEOS Fondsinsameling te ondersteun. 

Daar was talle pryse, pret en kunstenaars wat ons gaste tot laataand vermaak het. Die dansbaan was ook volgepak met oud en jonk wat lywe geswaai het op die ritme van die Tona-orkes en die DJ.

Die immergewilde Fanie de Villiers het die veiling hanteer en ons was weereens stomgeslaan deur mense wat hulle sakke en harte oopmaak om Eleos se projekte  te ondersteun.  
Ons opregte dank aan elke borg, donateur en getroue ondersteuner wat die aan weereens 'n reuse sukses gemaak het.

Die leerlinge van Laerskool Lynnwood het in Augustus leerlinge van 'n laerskool in Pretoria - Wes se voedingskema gaan besoek, bemoedig en bederf.
Lynnwood het ook kospakkies en klere ingesamel en uitgedeel aan die gesinne wat dit nodig het.

Pupils of Curro Hazeldean College visiting pupils of a feeding scheme in Pretoria West in August. Curro was able to collect jackets and warm clothes with their “Baadjie vir ’n Maatjie” project at the school.
The outreach was a whole lot of fun where the food and jackets were handed out and games played. The day was enjoyed by all.

AGAPE - Dameskamp 2018

VUUR, WATER & NUWE LEWE!

IMG_2745.JPG

Ons Agapé Damesgroep was op hul jaarlikse kamp na Zwartkloof  Natuur reservaat in September.
Hierdie is 'n hoogtepunt op ons geestelike kalender en soos een van ons vrywilligers wat met die kamp gehelp het tereg sê: 
"Wat ons ervaar is dat jy kom om te dien, maar ontvang meer seën as wat jy ooit kan uitdeel." 

Met kampe soos hierdie, bereik ons die individu op ’n een vir een basis. Deur hierdie persoonlike kontak kan die geestelike transformasie en groei in  elke dame sigbaar waarneem word.
