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.
“So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
New Frontline Film on the Nuba Mountains
By God's grace, Rozanne, Hunter and Christopher have completed the editing of our new film: Missions to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Please arrange to screen this 13-minute film at your home fellowship, school and church. This film has been produced in time for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Frontline Fellowship has been part of the movement to mobilise international prayer and pressure on behalf of the persecuted Church for 38 years. From the very beginning, we have been organisers of the IDOP (International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church) movement.
“Remember the prisoners as if chained with them - those who are mistreated - since you yourselves are in the body also.”
Mobilise Prayer and Support for our Besieged Brethren Behind Enemy Lines
You can view this film on our www.FrontlineMissionSA.org website under our Vimeo Gallery. This film particularly focuses on the courageous Christians in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, an island of Christianity in a sea of Islam. These besieged and beleaguered brethren have been fighting for Faith and freedom, in a desperate struggle for survival, against Islamic Jihad for many centuries. This film will take you across many borders, across vast distances of North Africa into the 10/40 Window of the Muslim Middle East, into one of the most remote and difficult to reach, dangerous mission fields on earth. You will see and hear from pastors, teachers, chaplains in the Nuba Mountains and hear inspiring testimonies of what God is doing in spite of vicious persecution.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation…”

“And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the Body of Christ and members individually.”
1 Corinthians 12:26-27

Conviction and Courage in the Battle for the Bible
On Reformation Day, we organised a guided tour of the Huguenot Museum and a noonday Reformation Celebration service at the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek. It was at noon on 31 October 1517, that Professor Martin Luther launched the Protestant Reformation by nailing his 95 Theses on the door of the Schlosskirche (The Castle Church) in Wittenberg. You can view a video of the Reformation Day service: Conviction and Courage in the Battle for the Bible, here. To listen to the audio, click here.
“To the Law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them.”
Standing for Life
We also organised the Life Chain in Cape Town, which mobilised 150 people to dominate the Traffick Island at Buitengracht Street, at the busiest intersection between the Cape Town International Conference Centre and the Waterfront. Our 18 literature distributors distributed well over 4,000 pro-life and evangelistic leaflets to passing motorists and pedestrians.
“Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city she speaks her words…”
Please continue to pray for our ongoing outreaches in Muslim communities and for our Evangelism Seminar (2-5 December 2019), the upcoming Biblical Worldview Summit (3-9 January 2020) and Great Commission Course (3-22 January 2020).
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”
May God continue to be your joy and strength.
Yours for the fulfillment of the Great Commission
