AFRICA OVERLAND MISSION UPDATE - APRIL 2013
Dear Friends, Family and Supporters
Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
I trust all is well with you.
Much has happened since our last update and I am sure you are waiting in anticipation to hear more from us about our Mission activities in Mozambique and Malawi.
In Mozambique we held 12 meetings including a Great Commission Seminar, 4 Devotions and 5 lectures. In Malawi so far we have held 48 meetings including a Biblical Worldview Seminar, 3 Great Commission Seminars and a Muslim Evangelism Workshop.
Dr. David Livingstone
Malawi is rich with the history of Dr. David Livingstone, as he spent a considerable time here and is directly responsible for the birth of Christianity in this country. We have visited a few magnificent cathedrals, hospitals and schools that trace their roots to this great hero of the Faith.
We were privileged to stand in the shade of the enormous fig tree dubbed "Dr. Livingstone’s Tree" where he sat more than 150 years ago negotiating with the local chiefs to sign a treaty to stop the slave trade. What giant footsteps he leaves behind for us to fill!
Renee successfully presented motivational presentations on the life of Dr. David Livingstone during some seminars.
We have been able to show the Jesus film on four occasions and in different areas, each time preceded by Evangelistic preaching urging those present to realise that they are lost and in desperate need of the Saviour.
Generally, I insisted that those who were in need of a Bible should earn themselves a Bible by reciting the 10 Commandments in order. Those who wanted an English Bible needed to recite the 10 Commandments in English, so that we could ensure that they were able to actually read the English Bible.
Muslims Respond to the Gospel
We urge you to continue to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters who are making a stand for Him here against overwhelming odds.
Thank you also to those of you who sacrifice to fund our Faith Mission. Your support enables us to fulfil our calling.
In His service - and loving it!Michael Watson
