NTOMBI BHENGU – A TRIBUTE BY THE MOTHER’S UNION

” But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everthing under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body” Philippians 3 :20- 21.

Had this been an event where mamBhengu is invited as a guest speaker, we would be singing Hymn 152 from AMACULO ESHESHI which goes thus:

O Jesu Nkulunkulu wami
Ngizwe ngikhala kuwe Nkosi
Uthel’umusa wakho kimi
Uhlezi eZulwini lakho
Nkosi Jesu ngiyakuthanda
Lwandise njal’uthando lwami.

This was her hymn of all seasons.

MamBhengu was a visible member in the Mothers’ Union. She was always the first one to visit when a member was sick, be it in hospital or just at home.

She would travel the length and breadth of South Africa when any of us was grieving.

Mam’Bhengu was a diligent, loving, and a very humble servant of the Lord. I can easily say that each one of us in the Mothers’ Union has some sort of a gift from her, just to prove her generous nature.

Mam’Bhengu’s wealth of knowledge regarding church and Mothers’ Union matters was immeasurable. Having led the Mothers’ Union in the previous years, she would not hesitate to offer help when needed.

Mam’Bhengu was a mentor to many of us, she would freely give out booklets to new members in preparation for the journey ahead in the Mothers’ Union.

Thursday services will not be the same without mamBhengu.  She would always bring us cakes from some bakery in Pinetown and we all enjoyed the treat.

We, in the Mothers’ Union send our sincerest condolences to you Sabelo, Bhabha, all the grandkids and the whole family at large.
May her Soul Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory.

Hamba kahle mamNtombi Bhengu.
