NEW! Drop Down Now Included In Vertex

This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

  • Customize almost everything! Shadows, borders, gradient, opacity
  • Contains 6 module positions drop_down_1, drop_down_2, drop_down_3, drop_down_4, drop_down_5 and drop_down_6
  • Auto adjust to the height of your content
  • Set your own open and close text
  • And many more features!

Miyaans’ prayer

Denidia Kilbourn

The power of prayer comes in every shoe size…

I once again realised this as I heard little Miyaan (3) say grace for the sandwiches we were about to receive.

Miyaan and her brother, Abu Bakr (Bakke, as we call him) have been part of our It’s Amazing Kids Club in Heideveld for the past two years. Every Tuesday and Wednesday they join us to get something nice to eat, some love and playtime with other children of the area.

The rest of the week they regularly come to visit our housemother, Auntie Lewena, where love overflows and a bowl of food is always available. These two, among others, have crept into our hearts. They are growing up in very difficult circumstances and it’s remarkable to see how fragile, yet strong they are. Bakke (5) has taken on the role as Miyaans’ protector. Wherever Miyaan goes, Bakke goes and wherever Bakke goes, Miyaan goes. Anyone can see from a mile away how strong and inspiring their brother-sister love is.

A while back, like every other Wednesday, as we gathered to wash hands and eat a sandwich, we asked the children who would like to say grace. Miyaan immediately put up a hand and asked if she could. Miyaan is usually very shy and definitely not a crowd pleaser. We think it’s thanks to teacher Magdel that Miyaan discovered her voice. (Magdel is our most recent addition to the team and runs the preschool playgroup.)

Miyaan closed her eyes, folded her hands and started to pray: “Lord, bless the food we are about to receive. Let us never forget who You
are. Amen.”
