"The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the Stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1
Answer to Prayer
Our team has been reduced in size as we lost one of our team members – not to death or any illness, but we willingly sacrificed him as a living sacrifice to serve the Lord at a Sola Scriptura Bible College that is in desperate need of help. In our last Mission update, we urged you to pray that God would send someone to fulfil this need; God has answered your prayers. We have released Ryno to respond to the earnest plea for help that came from the valiant old missionary who is single-handedly running this effective Bible College with its vast responsibilities and numerous challenges. Ryno was eager to respond to this need and thoroughly believed that God has called and prepared him for such a time as this.

Jesus said “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' Amen." Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)
I greet you in the precious Name of our Lord and Commissioner Jesus Christ!
The Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ is the most profound challenge we face as Christians. It challenges us in all areas of our lives, such as our knowledge of the Bible and ability to communicate its message, especially the Gospel, clearly. Our Faith – to persevere through the toughest of trials. Our obedience - to act upon the commands and teachings of Christ. It challenges our motives which influence our everyday decisions. Will I love my neighbour as myself? Will I pray for those who curse me?
Malawi was one of the great success stories of the 19th Century missionary movement. Starting with David Livingstone (whose birthday was for many years honoured as a national holiday in Malawi), missionaries succeeded in evangelising and discipling this nation so effectively that what was once the killing fields of Muslim slave traders became one of the most Protestant nations of Africa.

A Frontline mission team recently returned from a 16 week long, 14 000 km field outreach to Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
During this extensive field trip they conducted 27 Discipleship Training Seminars, 77 evangelistic meetings for women and children, 50 church services and 117 Bible studies! On two occasions team members had their passports and money stolen. On each occasion Robert tracked down the thieves and recovered the stolen items.

By God’s grace, Timothy, William and I have safely returned from our mission to Zambia and Malawi. We conducted Biblical Worldview Seminars in Zambia and Malawi and presented a total of 80 lectures, Bible studies and sermons, including at Bible colleges, ministers fraternals and churches. Over a tonne of Bibles and Christian books were delivered and distributed to churches, schools and missions. The team also purchased a pick-up truckload of food, soap, salt, rice and other supplies for prisoners of Lusaka Central Prison (where I had been imprisoned in 1987).
The Biblical Worldview Seminar in Lusaka was opened by the Member of Parliament for the area and over 230 pastors, deacons and evangelists registered as participants in this BWS.
