Getting out of my car with the Epi-max gift hamper, my first encounter were two gorgeous, extremely excited little boys who couldn’t wait for us to open their lovely gifts. I was warmly welcomed by dad, Chimumye, which I later learned means Joy – exactly what you experience when talking to Chimumye, his beautiful wife Linda and their children.
Faith is the core ingredient of Chimumye’s family. It defines them and stands firmly as the foundation of their daily lives. Chimumye came to South Africa from Zambia. He is a boilermaker at one of Emalahleni’s coal mines. Providing for his family and guiding them in strong values are two of his most important goals. With faith and joy Chimumye takes on daily challenges and deal with his hardships. One of these was the passing of his first love in Zambia, but he got another chance at love when he met his Linda.
Linda is also a woman of deep faith. Her face lights up when she laughs, she is friendly and inviting. Her adult children sing her praises and confirmed my suspicions – that she is a wonderful and caring mother.
Chimumye is unable to hide his passion for his faith and speaks about how grateful he is for all the opportunities and blessings he has. These include his two adult children. “They are very talented and both serve in ministry” he boasts in a humble way. He is very proud of them.
Attending church and serving others are the ways in which the couple bring up their two little ones. They are loving and kind, and very appreciative of everything life sends their way – including the beautiful gifts Epi-max has given them. As a father whose family’s needs are most important and always come first, receiving a gift for himself was refreshing and very precious too. They couldn’t thank Epi-max enough.
The Epi-max team spent the evening of 22 September sharing valuable information with our group of baby mommies. The online session was filled with scientific snippets and practical pointers that helped the mom’s understand the benefits and uses of the range of Epi-max products better. Thank you to Salmari Fourie and her team, for the insights shared and valuable BABY TALK provided!
