The journey to get me to where I am today can be described as nothing short of God-ordained. It all really started for me back in 2018, I was chosen as a Mandela Washington Fellow. I spent 8 weeks in the United States of America refining my skill sets, broadening my entrepreneurial horizons and building an invaluable professional network. It was there that a door opened for my consideration- immigrating to Canada. I returned to South Africa, however, and continued sowing into the land that God had planted me until December 2019, where He would pave the way for my great move to Canada.
It was one morning in December 2019, I had woken up confused because of the dream that I had just had, in it I was in Canada working alongside the team at the Miracle Meal but I was heading up their sales in my region. There were so many questions, though I had an opportunity to move to Canada, there was still so much uncertainty surrounding my future there and so I brushed off the dream.
Fast Forward 8 months later, one giant move across the world and one Global Pandemic, I got a text message from Alidia Symes asking about my interest in a proposal. In the space of a few days, everything fell into place. A peace about the right way forward had settled over all the stakeholders and here we are, reminded once again that all the individual steps we have taken have been directed by God to lead us exactly where we are meant to be- a part of His story.

Corinthians 11:23–25, Paul says:
“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

When tragedy struck a Salt Rock family, they felt called to help spread the power of miracles.
Alidia and Dominic Symes were on holiday in Singapore when they got the news that Dominic’s dad was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Day 2015. Broken and shocked, the devoted Christians turned to God for strength and guidance.
“We were at New Creation Church in Singapore which speaks to taking part in communion as an integral part in healing. This put something in our heart and we knew we needed to make sure everyone has the opportunity and access to communion,” said Alidia, who goes to Linc Church in Salt Rock with her husband and two children.
“The holy communion, known also as the Lord’s supper, represents the greatest expression of God’s love for His people. Two items are used in the communion – the bread which represents Jesus’ body that was scourged and broken before and during His crucifixion, and the cup of wine or juice which represents His shed blood. This symbolic ritual of His death and resurrection is believed to have healing power.”
“We are currently producing 30 000 cups a month. Our aim is to get to 200 000. We supply Hillsong, Christian Revival Church and Redemption Church already and hope to keep spreading The Miracle Meal across the world.”
