South Africa for Christ Mission
South Africa Mission
By God's grace, our team has safely returned from a 5,600km Mission throughout 6 provinces of South Africa. In the last month we conducted 140 meetings at 11 schools, 7 churches, 5 Mission stations, 2 Bible colleges, a Ministers' Conference and a Great Commission Seminar.
Literature for Africa
We delivered and distributed over 2.5 tonnes of Bibles, New Testaments, Gospel booklets, books, newsletters, tracts, magazines and audio visual materials, including over 220 audio CDs, 112 MP3 boxsets, 153 DVD boxsets and 26 Digital Libraries to pastors, teachers, missionaries, Evangelists, chaplains and to school, college and Mission libraries.
Confronting Comrades with the Gospel of Christ at the ANC 103 Anniversary Rally
Cape Town Stadium
Saturday, 10 January 2015, we distributed thousands of anti-communist leaflets and Gospel tracts, such as The World's Greatest Revolutionary, Where Will You Spend Eternity?, etc., to the comrades attending the ANC's 103rd year celebrations at Cape Town Stadium.
I asked several of the comrades what was going on in there. Their responses were: "Free! Free! Everything is for free!"
"What is free?" I asked:
"Everything! Free food! Free drinks! Free clothes! We pay nothing! They are giving everything away free!"
Christians Under Fire in Africa
While the world has been focused on the shocking terror attacks in Paris that left 17 dead, thousands of Christians have been murdered by Islamic Jihadists in Africa.
Carnage Against Christians
The same week of the Paris attacks on Charlie Hebdo (a weekly magazine known for its irreverent and mocking articles and satirical cartoons against political and religious leaders), Amnesty International reported on a massacre of over 2,000 people in Northern Nigeria. Over Saturday, 3rd and Sunday, 4th January, the town of Baga, on the border of Chad, was attacked by Boko Haram insurgents who fired Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and assault rifles on church-goers and town residents. Most of the victims were children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough as they were mowed down by the Muslim terrorists.
Churches Looted and Burned in Niger
Christian schools, colleges, homes and churches have been targeted for looting and destruction in Niger. World Watch Monitor reports that more than 70 churches have been looted and burned by Muslim mobs in Niger.
Murder and Mayhem by Muslim Mobs
In Zinder, Muslim rioters went from house to house looting and burning the homes of Christians. The SIM (Society for International Missions) Mission compound in Gourd, the Good Samaritan orphanage run by the Assemblies of God and numerous other Christian schools and colleges were burned. So far the bodies of 5 Christians have been found in burned out churches.
Why Celebrate the Reformation?
Twenty years ago a Frontline Fellowship Mission team was approaching a remote village in Cuando Cubango province (what the Portuguese refered to as the ends of the earth) in Angola. The team heard the sound of enthusiastic singing. They immediately recognised the tune, even though they could not understand the words.
A Mighty Fortress is Our God
What they were hearing was: Ein Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is our G
od), Dr. Martin Luther's great Battle Hymn of the Reformation, in Ovimbundu. This beloved Hymn, based on Psalm 46, is one of the favourite Hymns of the Persecuted Church, and one of the most translated Hymns in history.
