40 Years of Frontline – Behind Enemy Lines for Christ
God willing, 2022 Frontline Fellowship will celebrate 40 years since our first cross-border mission into Mozambique, April 1982. I am planning to have my book: Frontline – Behind Enemy Lines for Christ completed, published and available in time to mark this four-decade milestone of ministry in Restricted Access Areas serving persecuted churches.
Africa Overland Missions to Remote Regions
Despite on-going, erratic, irrational and inconsistent bureaucratic regulations and restrictions, we have succeeded in conducting extensive Africa overland missions throughout Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique, conducting film evangelism and mass literature distribution, outreaches, school ministry, women’s ministry, leadership training for pastors, chaplains, evangelists and teachers. Our team delivered tonnes of Bibles and books to remote regions, even to areas where not even the pastor had a Bible, or New Testament!
20 Years of Covenant College Zambia
Our mission team was able to visit and see the development of Covenant College which marked 20 years since it was established by Frontline Fellowship.
Our mission team also ministered in areas of Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique where over 95% of the population were Muslim. By God’s grace, our missionaries in Cape Town have been conducting Bible studies with Muslims and developing regular outreaches and presentations in Muslim communities. You can visit and share www.TheMessageofNabiisa.org. “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes …” Romans 1:16
Missions to The Transvaal, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu
Along with conducting a Biblical Worldview Seminar in Pretoria, the Biblical Worldview Summit near Cape Town and the Great Commission Course, I conducted missions to the Transvaal, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu. I spent two weeks at Back to the Bible Mission, which included presenting lectures on Reformation History. I was a guest speaker at KragDag in the Transvaal where over 6,000 farmers gathered. I was also invited to be a speaker at the Youth Conference at KwaSizabantu Mission in KwaZulu. In the last year I have conducted over 440 meetings, including more than 200 radio and TV programmes.
Radio and TV Ministry
Every week I present From the Frontline, Christian Perspective on the News for Radio Cape Pulpit and programmes for English Radio host Andrew Harrington Hitchcock. We continue to host the Salt and Light radio programme which is broadcast on Radio Tygerberg. This we have done for over 27 years. Every month I have ministry opportunities on a variety of radio stations and some TV shows across America and with Loving Life TV broadcasting out of Australia. On occasions I have radio and TV interviews with stations as far afield as the Netherlands, Germany, Kenya, Zambia and New Zealand. I was also a speaker at the National Alliance for Life Conference and with a number of other international events by Zoom or Skype.
William Carey Bible Institute Satellite School in North Africa
This year marked an important milestone, as one of our satellite schools in a country in North Africa, held its first graduation service for WCBI students in this Arabic speaking, Muslim country.

Many of these and other articles can be accessed on our www.FrontlineMissionSA.org; www.LivingstoneFellowship.co.za; www.ReformationSA.org; www.HMSSchoolofChristianJournalism.org and www.ChristianAction.org.za websites.
Aside from regular articles that I write for Frontline Fellowship, Africa Christian Action, Gospel Defence League and Henry Morton Stanley School of Christian Journalism, I also write regular articles for other publications worldwide. This last year I wrote 74 articles.
Creation Science Ministry
We hosted Creation Science Author and Engineer, Dr. Philip Stott, at our Biblical Worldview Summit and for a variety of other meetings including a webinar and Creation Science Seminar in the Upper Room, Bathman Memorial Hall. The videos and audios of Philip Stott’s Creation Science lectures are available on our www.FrontlineMissionSA.org website. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
16 Years of the Reformation Society
Our Reformation Society, which has been meeting every Thursday night for the last 16 years, has seen its attendance double since the Upper Room was built. We also held a Classical Music Concert on Heritage Day and a Variety Concert and Awards for the Reformation Art & Essay Competition, along with our Home Education Fair. Other missions have also made use of our expanded residential facilities at Livingstone House and of the Upper Room.
Biblical Preaching Workshops
Hunter and Daniel have organised four Biblical Preaching Course workshops and a variety of other events. You can view videos of these Biblical Preaching Workshops, or listen to audios of the lectures, on our www.FrontlineMissionSA.org audio and video pages.

Hunter reports conducting 89 Bible studies and outreaches in Muslim communities, he organised four Biblical Preaching Workshops, a Students Café, a Christmas Meeting and a Two-Week course in a Muslim area. He also presented 35 sermons, devotions and lectures and 36 radio programmes.
Rhodesia Association of South Africa
For the last six years I have served as chaplain to the local Flame Lily Foundation-Cape Peninsula, conducting their Remembrance services each November. For the last three years I have been Chairman of Flame Lily Foundation-Cape Peninsula. This has involved giving presentations to members gathered every month, either in the MOTH hall, or in the Methodist church hall, in Fish Hoek. I now edit the Fish Eagle and Rhosarian magazines and we host the Rhodesia Heritage Library. You can view the RASA website here and the Flame Lily Foundation – Cape Peninsula Facebook page here. I regularly contribute to the Rhodesians Worldwide magazine and Reclaiming Rhodesia. We are caring for 14 destitute Rhodesian pensioners and supporting food parcels to pensioners in Zimbabwe, along with our Boxes with Love programme.
Wildfires and Widespread Looting
As Cape Town was hit by devastating wildfires on 18 April, I conducted investigative journalism to expose the arson and cover-ups and the agenda behind it. You can read my article, and view the video exposing the arson and cover-ups behind the wildfires in Cape Town, click here. The communist chaos, looting and riots which devastated so much of KwaZulu/Natal and Gauteng from 9 July on also needed a clear response and led to many radio and TV programmes, public meetings and articles published worldwide. View my presentation here. Read the article here.
Cape Independence Forum
For over two years I have been the Chairman of the Cape Independence Forum, hosting meetings every month and negotiating and counselling with various leaders in this growing movement. This has led to the publication of the Cape Independence Handbook, which includes Eye-witness to Successful Secessions and Secessions in the Bible and in History. These are available freely on our new website: www.capeofgoodhope.africa. You can also visit our new The Cape of Good Hope Facebook page here.
Resisting the Revolutionary Globalist Agenda
I have numerous opportunities to speak to protestors marching or rallying against the lockdown lunacy, masquerade madness, salvation by vaccination Covid Cult and the increasingly irrational and intrusive state regulations that have silenced, sidelined and shut down thousands of churches country wide. Many ministry opportunities have developed out of these, including to Muslim communities. The threat to Faith and Freedom by increasingly arbitrary restrictions clearly advancing a globalist agenda must be resisted. More churches have been closed in the name of fighting a virus than the combined total closed by communistic dictators Stalin and MaoTse-Tung during the Cold War.
Biblical Issues Voters Guide
This last year, being a municipal election year, we updated our Biblical Issues Voters Guide and another Voters Guide on where the various parties stand on decentralisation, referendums, self-determination and secession and where the different parties stand with regard to masks, lockdowns, mandatory vaccinations and vaccine passports. This led to many radio and TV interviews. I was also asked to draft the Cape Town Declaration on Human Rights and Informed Consent. All this you can access on our www.SAvotersguide.org website.
We also completely revised, updated and expanded our Salt and Light Starter Pack, the Frontline Fellowship Handbook and Great Commission Handbook. We are completing an unpublished manuscript of Rev. Bill Bathman’s: Reformation and Revival in Romania which should be ready for printing early in the new year. We placed five our most popular titles on Print on Demand, making them readily available worldwide: Victorious Christians who Changed the World; Greatest Century of Reformation; Greatest Century of Missions; Slavery, Terrorism and Islam – the Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat and Security and Survival Handbook. Thirty of our books are now available as e-books.
New Book for Educators
We brought to publication Professor Deborah Pelzmann’s (my sister in-law) book: She Who is Called To Teach. With Deborah’s extensive and innovative experience in four countries, on three continents, in two hemispheres, there is much to encourage, edify and empower educators in this insightful book.
Real History Resources
We also launched a new website dedicated to Historic articles, audio lectures, Power Points and videos: www.realhistoryresources.org

Lenora and Her Legacy
The traumatic deterioration in health of my wife, Lenora, necessitated that we care for her at home. She did not want to die in hospital amongst strangers when not even visits would be allowed. Therefore, we rose to the challenge of receiving instruction and equipment from Hospice to make Lenora’s last months as comfortable as possible. It was always Lenora’s desire to have her children “no further than 5 minutes away” and to live to see her grandchildren. By God’s grace, all four of our children and our three grandchildren live at our fairly crowded home. Lenora would light up every time she saw her grandsons come into the room.
Thank You for Your Prayers, Love, Encouragement and Support
We have been overwhelmed by the love, support and prayers of our friends and intercessors worldwide. You can view the tributes and eulogies to Lenora at the Memorial Service which was held in the Upper Room, Bathman Memorial Hall and the Funeral service at the Dutch Reformed Church in Franschhoek. We praised God for the birth of our third grandson, Oliver David in May of this year. Lenora has left behind a tremendous legacy in her children and grandchildren and in the beautiful home, the Livingstone House Upper Room extension project and gardens which she invested so much into.
Please pray for our Upcoming Events which include: a Mission to a Restricted Access Area in North Africa, the delivery of Digital Libraries, audio Bibles and other Arabic Scriptures to a Restricted Access Area in North Africa; Special Projects Bible deliveries in indigenous languages to mission stations, schools, colleges and churches throughout Africa; the Biblical Worldview Summit (6 – 13 January 2022); the publication of “Frontline – Behind Enemy Lines for Christ”; “Reformation and Revival in Romania” and the Great Commission Handbook. We are also organising the Sanctity Life Sunday (29 January 2022) and March for Life to Parliament (1 February 2022) to mark the anniversary of the legalisation of abortion in South Africa.
We have numerous missionary and staff training programmes and outreaches scheduled in January and more cross-border missions planned.
The mission team which left on the Africa Overland Mission to Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique is still in the field and we are praying for their safe return before our Biblical Worldview Summit.
It is our duty and destiny to be involved in ministry of multiplication with a multi-generational vision. We are called to be steadfast and faithful as we encourage, equip and empower evangelists and Bible teachers to seek first the Kingdom of God, make disciples of nations and teach obedience to all things that the Lord has commanded. The Great Commission is our Supreme Ambition. Christ’s last command must be our first concern. “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. You, therefore, must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” 2 Timothy 2:2 – 3
The missionaries, interns and staff of Frontline Fellowship join me in expressing our deep gratitude for your prayers, encouragement, love and support. We have much to be grateful for. God has protected us from many dangers, blessed and multiplied our humble, inadequate efforts for the extension of His Kingdom and to serve suffering Christians. We are deeply grateful for all of His provisions and gracious answers to many prayers. It is a tremendous privilege to be His sons and daughters, His servants and soldiers, serving the suffering, training and mobilising evangelists and educators, soul-winners and nation transformers.
By God’s grace, we trust our Lord Jesus Christ for a far more productive and effective year of ministry ahead.May God continue to be your strength and shield.
Yours for Reformation, Revival and the fulfilment of the Great Commission.
Dr. Peter Hammond
