Kathu Northern Cape South Africa

Kathu Northern Cape South Africa
Located in the Kalahari region of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, the picturesque little town of Kathu owes its existence to one of the largest open-cast iron ore mining operations in the world. Referred to as ‘the town under the trees’, Kathu is connected by road, rail and air to its closest main center, Kimberley.

Jesus warned, "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places." (Matthew 24:6-7)

Jesus tells us not to be alarmed, that wars and natural disasters will happen. I think His people need to be prepared. They need to be ready to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and be prepared to provide Christ's Gospel, aid, comfort, and safety to their neighbors. It's what we should do for the least of these in times of great tragedy and need! (Matthew 25:34-40)
