20th Anniversary of the Bisho Massacre
The recent killings at the Lonmin platinum mine, where 44 striking miners were shot by the police, brought to remembrance other "massacres", provoked by aggressive demonstrators, notably the Bisho Massacre. This took place on 7 September 1992, at which 28 members of the African National Congress (ANC) and one Ciskei soldier was shot. At that time the Ciskei was an independent state ruled by Brigadier Oupa Gqozo, a moderate Christian ruler who tried to promote a federal government system in South Africa. In his Council of State Report of 1992 he said: "We reaffirm that the Ciskei government subscribes to Christian principles, based on Scripture. We also maintain that a regional government is the essential component of future peace." Its laws, he said, should ideally be in line with the Ten Commandments.

ELIM MISSION MASSACRE 23 JUNE 1978
Guerillas crossed the border, from their base in Mozambique,
Cowardly satanic whores, trained well to kill the meek.
Transforming Lives by Changing Nations - April 2012
Our Mission team to Zimbabwe reported back on a proliferation of cults, sects and false gospels undermining churches throughout Zimbabwe during this troubled time of power failures and food shortages
Mission to Zimbabwe
Our Mission team delivered Boxes with Love to destitute pensioners and conducted Discipleship Seminars in three churches. The Discipleship Training Seminars used the new Discipleship Training Manual of Frontline Fellowship as the primary textbook. Lectures presented included: The Essence of the True Gospel, Repentance, Full Salvation, What is a Christian?, The World vs The Word, I am Not Ashamed of the Gospel, The Beatitudes, Suffering and Revival. All in all the Mission team took 60 meetings, including lectures, sermons, devotions, Bible studies and film ministry.
The team conducted Evangelism Workshops using Way of the Master and Evangelism Explosion materials and films, including: Hell’s Best Kept Secret and The Biggest Question. Some of the teaching times were followed by prolonged intensive times of prayer and some participants of seminars went out onto the streets and into the marketplaces to conduct Evangelism in the community. The team screened films on 15 occasions.
Prayer & Praise Update - May 2012
Mission to Mpumalanga
By God's grace, I had the privilege of being invited to conduct a Missions Conference in Mpumalanga.
The Message in the Music
The first meeting was a Youth Rally where I had been asked to speak on The Message in the Music. Before I had even taken the podium to begin the presentation, the music group, which had led the praise and worship, filed out, carrying their musical instruments with them! A missionary's job description is to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.
