Motivational Christian speaker, My-an Subrayan, visited Kathu on 19 October 2017 as the guest of the AGS church in Kathu.
Myan Subrayan is a writer, speaker and life coach to both businesses and sports teams.
The AGS church invited a select group of business people from Kathu to a sump-tuous breakfast at the Namakwari Lodge to attend Mr Subrayan's presentation on rais-ing confidence in business and how to transform oneself into thinking, acting and planning positively in order to take one's bu-siness to a different level.
Mr Subrayan has written books and bio-graphies for Springboks Pierre Spies and Jannie de Beer, for Bafana Bafana's Delron Buckley, for the All Black's Inga Tuigamala and for the Olympic gold medallist Chad Le Clos.
He has successfully worked with  profes-sional rugby teams such as the Lions, the Southern Kings and the Warriors, the Dol-phins cricket team, the Amazulu and Ama Tuks soccer teams and with various olym-pic athletes like Chad le Clos, Wayde van Niekerk, Luvo Manyonga and Akani Simbi-
From his presentation, it was clear that Mr Subrayan had made a meticulous study of the psyche of the Afrikaner, homing in on the subtleties of the Afrikaner culture and humour.
He gave a very pleasant and entertaining account of his previous experience with well-known celebrities and sports teams and highlighted the importance of personal confidence, a positive mind set, marketing skills and financial prudence.
Mr Subrayan said that PRIDE stands for personal responsibility in delivering excel-lence. He also advised that one must be careful of what one says about oneself, because in the power of the tongue lies life and death.
He also referred to rejection, direction and resurrection. It suggests changing the direction of one's under-performing busi-ness so as to completely revitalise it.
In conclusion, Mr Subrayan urged all pre-sent to be the change in South Africa.
Mr Subrayan has published several moti-vational books, three of which are available in Afrikaans.

From a young age, members of Rudoz Gospel Band have always had a dream of singing gospel music. The band was established in 2012 by five members namely, Sam Lyums, Raphael Ciata, Jacob Mosala, Andrew Tshineva and Andily Damas. They gained their momentum as years went by. Although they are still seeking glory, they managed to win the hearts of gospel music lovers in and out of Gamagara. They are confident that one day they will take the gospel fratenity by storm on country level.

On 03 September 2016, Rudoz held a gospel show in Siyathemba community hall, in an attempt to expand their popularity and lure fans.

Their manager Hilton Appolis could not hold back the excitement at a fully packed hall of fans. He thanked everyone for coming out in numbers to support these young talented vocalists. “we are deeply greatful for the love and support you showed us, continue to support us on this journey of glorifying the name of our Creator”, said Mr Appolis. The band performed its numerous events in both private and public, they are still hoping to have a lot of events in the future. For bookings call 063 2325 422.

Die Griekwaland Streek het ‘n paar jaar gelede sy status as streek verloor as gevolg van ‘n tekort aan geordende pastore. Die streek is toe ingelyf by die Namakwari streek van die Volle Evangelie Kerk.

Intussen het pastore wat in die Griekwaland streek bly en gemeentes lei hul teologiese kursusse suksesvol voltooi en is hulle georden.

Daar is toe op ‘n streekvergadering besluit dat die twee streke van mekaar gaan skei en elke streek gaan op sy eie funksioneer.

‘n Aanbevelingsverslag is na die hoofkantoor van die VEK gestuur en die hoofkantoor het dit goedgekeur dat die Griekwaland streek weer as ‘n streek op sy eie moet funksioneer. Die twee streke is toe van mekaar geskei.

Op Saterdag 6 Augustus 2016 het pastoor Saunders (Streekopsiener van die Namakwari streek) die Griekwaland streek amptelik geopen.

Daar is toe ‘n streek dagbestuur demokraties verkies. Die amptenare wat verkies is, is as volg: Pastoor P van Rensburg (Streekopsiener), Pastoor J Thys (Vise-streekopsiener), Pastoor S White (Sekretaris) en Pastoor R Le Fleur (Tesourier). Twee pastore is addisioneel tot die dagbestuur verkies.

Die nuwe streek sal strek vanaf Olifantshoek tot by Victoria-Wes. Die pastore van die dagbestuur is almal bekwame, ervare, betroubare en gedissiplineerde pastore. Hulle almal lei ook plaaslike gemeentes.

Pastoor S White is ook tydens die geleentheid verkies as die Voorsitter van die Griekwaland-Wes VEK distrik.

Al die pastore word geluk en sterkte toegewens met die goddelike taak wat hulle opgelê is. Hulle taak is om Mattheus 28:19 na te kom.


Pastoor Sarel White, Voorsitter van die Griekwaland-Wes VEK distrik.

fai0160319In pursuit of trying to suppress the spread of HIV and TB infection rate, STIs disability and social impact, the John Taolo Gaetsewe district mayoral office has deemed it necessary that the provincial strategic plan be spread to the faith-based organisation to work on its strategic plans.
March 10, 2016 witnessed the launch of the faith-based organisation that will spear-head some of the many challenges that keep on traumatising communities, despite the awareness campaigns.
A number of church leaders, govern-ment departments and other stakeholders assembled at Eldorado Hotel to exchange views expressed by the infected and affected in an endeavour to understand the trends of dealing with the scourge of the disease that has manifested itself as an infinite challenge to the researcher, throughout the world.
The ultimate objective was to launch a vibrant organisation that has to engage periodically, deliberating on issues per-taining to the intervention methods of the pandemic.
The realisation that faith-based organi-sations are at the grassroots of commu-nities, they better understand individual and household challenges in dealing with the HIV and AIDS related experiences within them.
The role of the church has been adjud-ged as that of closing one eye while ano-ther is open. This is so because there is a belief that churches are aware that the Christian world is no stranger to the pan-demic, but their podiums cannot preach issues of sex and sexuality, use of con-doms and other topics, to deal with absti-nence in the fight against the spread of HIV and related illnesses. As a result, the word SIN has made it very difficult in the church for the free flow of disclosures in an attempt to get advice and relevant inform-ation.
There was a unanimous thought that the church doctrine much embrace HIV and tuberculosis as a challenge for “us” not “them” to deactivate stigmatisation among societies.
A ten-member committee was elected that will start working with all faith-based and other organisations to ensure the objectives of caring, prevention and treat-ment remain realistic and achievable where the district, province and govern-ment will work as a collective synergy in an endeavour to curtail the upward spiral of infection.
