Fruity fun for Stonecroft women

Sonja Human, who has years of experience in the culinary industry, demonstrated innovative ways to take an ordinary vegetable or a fruit and turn it into a centre piece on a plate.

Stonecroft Ministries returned with its monthly morning tea at the Shelly Methodist Church Hall last Friday.

Guests got their creative juices flowing, as the theme of the morning was fruit and vegetable design.

Sonja Human, who has years of experience in the culinary industry, demonstrated innovative ways to take an ordinary vegetable or a fruit and turn it into a centre piece on a plate.

She showed guests easy methods and tricks to take their food to the next level, using everyday ingredients, tools and minimal wastage.

Thereafter guests tried their hand at sculpting an animal out of fruit, using only a knife and a picture for reference.

It was a humorous challenge, and prizes were awarded to those whose fruits closest resembled the picture.

Also in attendance were musicians Annemie Oosthuysen and Joseph Chiole who kept guests entertained with beautiful melodies and opera.

After tea and a bit of social fellowship, Celeste van der Merwe delivered her heartfelt testimony.

Originally from Bloemfontein, she now lives in Uvongo with her husband.

Celeste explained how her two year old son became terminally ill many years ago, but was miraculously healed after an abundance of passionate prayer.

Her son’s recovery was confirmed by tests conducted by doctors at the time.

Celeste went on to organise events such as the Free State leg of a worldwide torch run.

She also worked as a prayer coordinator for God’s Kingdom in Action.

Celeste is currently involved in creating and teaching art.

A number of her stunning paintings were on display for guests to view.
