10 Years ago, September 2009, John Mark Clifford joined Frontline Fellowship as an IT/Audio Visual worker. Those who observed this quiet, reserved young man could not have predicted the dynamic Missionary into which he would develop.
Cross Border Missions
One key turning point was John’s participation in the 2010 Biblical Worldview Summit and Great Commission Course. Soon we saw John participating in cross-border missions to Zimbabwe and he became a Trainee Missionary.
Taking a Stand
In 2011, I asked John to produce and present The Message in the Music lecture at the BWS. This was another key turning point, as his presentation soon became the most controversial and discussion generating subject at the camp. John learned that to be faithful to the Lord often means being unpopular with the world.
Shipments of Spiritual Ammunition for Spiritual Warfare
We praise God for three shipments of precious Bibles and Christian books received in the last month. First, we received a 20-foot, 18-tonne container of Bibles and books from Eagles Nest Ministries. Then just a day later, a 30-foot container of over 22 tonnes of World Missionary Press Gospel booklets (over two million Gospel booklets, each 50-pages all Scripture, in 15 languages – English, Afrikaans, Xhosa, Zulu, Chichewa, French, Portuguese, Swahili, Sepedi, Sesotho, Shona, Tswana and Yao). Then a designated gift enabled us to buy, from the Bible Society, 790 Bibles in indigenous African languages, including: Afrikaans, Chichewa, Ndebele, Sesotho, Shona, Seswati, Tswana, Xhosa and Zulu. All told, over 40 tonnes of literature to offload, sort, categorise, designate and distribute. Many pastors, evangelists, teachers and missionaries have already come to our Literature4Africa stores to resupply their ministries and obtain essential spiritual ammunition for their outreaches and discipleship projects.
