(Cindy Handwatch)

Cynderella Helen Handwatch, affectionately known as Cindy by family and friends, is a South African, brought up in Wentworth and lived in various other parts of KZN. Unfortunately, circumstances prompted her move to New Zealand in 2014 but her children and grandchildren are still in South Africa.

Pursuing a law and Bible degree, and being an avid Bible student, she embraced the latter and finally obtained a Bachelor of Theology Degree in April 2000. With the degree under her belt, in December 2010, she was officially ordained a pastor.

She currently has books with Umgeni Community Empowerment Centre (UCEC), 16/18 Mona Road, off Victoria Embankment, Durban. The proceeds from the sale of the books would go towards the (COVID19) feeding scheme, their normal daily feeding project and other empowerment programmes that they are engaged in.

The Human Trafficking pandemic has motivated Handwatch to fight against all forms of abuse. His Eye Upon Us is an intriguing story of five young women destined to meet under horrific circumstances. But their lives are transformed into a glorious future filled with promises and hope.

In His Eye Upon Us, she engages the guidance of the Holy Spirit to capture the essence of the story and some of her experiences. Inspired by the knowledge and the revelation of the word, she skillfully applies this insight and has succeeded in bringing the characters to life in print. Her primary aspiration is that the reader is encouraged and finds comfort between the pages in knowing, whatever the need, aid, support, and care is available.
