30 Years of Biblical Worldview Summits
Since 1991, we have been conducting Biblical Worldview Summits. This year, 2021, marks the 30th anniversary of the launch of our first BWS, which was held at Glenvar Bible College in Constantia.
In the last three decades, participants have travelled through to our Biblical Worldview Summits (BWS) in Cape Town from as far afield as Australia, Botswana, Canada, the Congo, England, Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Scotland, Sudan, Switzerland, Uganda, the United States of America, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The enthusiastic response of those who have participated in these life-changing courses have encouraged us to continue refining and updating the BWS as a Christian Leadership Training Course, designed to encourage, equip and empower believers to apply Biblical principles to every area of life.
Solid Spiritual Foundation
Our good friend and Board Member, Dr. James Kennedy, declared: “The Summit provides a solid spiritual foundation to help keep your child’s faith secure in the storms of godlessness and unbelief confronting him.”
Stretching Minds and Muscles
The Biblical Worldview Summit included 7 Devotions, or sermons; 30 lectures and presentations from 13 speakers; 4 hours of Discussion and Prayer Group sessions; 7 Film screenings; 3 Just a Minute Debating Skills Games; 6 Bible Drill sessions; the Bible Exam; a Variety Concert; 4 outreaches and 23 hours of practicals, workshops, sports, team building, obstacle crossing and problem solving outdoor activities. You can see some pictures on the Biblical Worldview Summit Facebook page, here. You can view our new videos on the Biblical Worldview Summit, here and here.
Over 2,000 Gospel booklets and Evangelistic tracts were distributed during four outreaches in the local town. BWS participants engaged in Way of the Master and Evangelism Explosion discussions with people on the streets and prayed with those who were responsive.
“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…”

In addition to our Frontline Missionaries who have worked across the continent, other guest speakers included, authors Cuan Elgin and Charl van Wyk; Evangelists Paul Young and Anthony Stander.

Nuba Mountains Medical Mission
We praise God for the successful completion of the Nuba Mountains Medical Mission. Ben, Dr. J. Pons, the eye surgeon and Johan of Doctors for Life, travelled in January up to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, to set up the first speciality surgery theatre as a permanent clinic at the Mother of Mercy Hospital, which is the only referral hospital in the Nuba Mountains. Dr. Tom had requested help to locate and purchase eye equipment suitable for operating in a third world setting and to transport it to the Nuba Mountains. We approached Doctors for Life (DFL) for assistance. Knowing of their successful eye operation missions to Angola and Mozambique, we were convinced that DFL were the best people to conduct this medical mission to the Nuba. A young Nuban medical student, Caesar, concluded his Ophthalmology training in October 2020. Dr. Pons was able to give him further practical training in how to conduct cataract surgery. By God’s grace, Dr. Pons, Johan and Caesar were able to perform 153 cataract surgeries, in many cases, literally enabling the blind to see! While the surgeries were taking place at the hospital, Ben hiked up and down the mountains to remote villages screening the Jesus film and distributed 1,500 Bibles. The team also distributed 30 audio Bibles to those who have trouble reading. A follow-up mission is being planned. The hospital has a great need for more reading glasses and audio Bibles. Over 700 people were registered as needing eye surgery. Johan mentioned the joy of seeing the reactions of people who came in practically blind and were then able to view the Jesus film and begin reading the Bible for the first time in many years. See the Missions to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan film here.
Standing for Life
On the 1st of February, the anniversary of the legalisation of abortion on demand in South Africa, we mobilised eight teams to make a Stand for Life at busy traffic intersections throughout the Cape Peninsula. As the annual March for Life to parliament was prohibited under lockdown restrictions, our plan B was to mobilise small groups to stand with pro-life banners and placards at traffic intersections and distribute Evangelistic pro-life literature to passing motorists and pedestrians. We distributed over 4,500 pro-life and evangelistic leaflets and World Missionary Press Gospel booklets. You can view pictures of some of these Stand for Life outreaches on the Africa Christian Action Facebook page, click here. You can also see the new Stand for Life video here. “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…” Proverbs 1:20-22.
We also organised literature outreaches on three consecutive mornings at the Cape Gate Okavango traffic light intersection. Each morning there were seven to nine volunteers, most of whom would distribute literature to passing motorists and others would stand holding a different Scripture banner each day. These teams succeeded in distributing almost 6,000 pro-life and Evangelistic tracts and World Missionary Press Gospel booklets, including, Abortion - The Facts; Considering Abortion; It’s My Body; Milestones for Early Life; Shattered Hopes! – Broken Dreams!; Help from Above; How to Love God; Way to God; Repentance Towards God and Seven Words of Love. “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.” Isaiah 55:11
Biblical Preaching Course

Mission to Mpumalanga
Please pray for the Director of Frontline Fellowship, Dr. Peter Hammond, as he conducts a Mission to Mpumalanga, lecturing on Reformation Church History to the students at Back to the Bible Mission (BBM). For over 14 years, Peter has been part of the Faculty at BBM, presenting lectures on Missions, Church History, Biblical Worldview and Muslim Evangelism. This year, he is also helping to supervise and organise the Emmanuel Library for the College.
Lenora Hammond’s Battle with Cancer
Please also continue to pray for Lenora Hammond as she is battling a spread of cancer into her skull and lower spine. Lenora is back from the hospital and recovering from the intense nausea, extreme pain and the fracture of one of her back ribs. Lenora has been battling cancer since 2010. Lenora is a fighter and a survivor. She is a counsellor with Reach for Recovery and has been a vital part of the Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat racing team.
Livingstone House Building Project
Great progress continues to be made on the Livingstone House Building Project. Our Upper Room, Bathman Memorial Hall, has been used every Thursday night since November, for the Reformation Society presentations. Our boardroom could not fit the people in and now with the extra space, attendance has more than doubled. The Upper Room is also regularly used for seminars, workshops, livestreams, Bible studies, prayer meetings and conferences. The piano is often being played and Bill Bathman's chess table is being enthusiastically used for challenges and chess tournaments amongst residents and guests.

Faith, Family and the Future Conference - Celebrating 30 Years of Africa Christian Action
On Ascension Day, Thursday, 13 May, ACA will be hosting the Faith, Family and the Future Conference Celebrating 30 years of Africa Christian Action. The conference will begin at 9 am. All those who are part of the campaign to be “salt and light” in the community, to be a “watchman on the walls,” standing for the right to life of preborn babies, for family values, for Biblical marriage and Bible-based education controlled by the parents, aided by the Church, but independent of the state, are welcome to join in this conference as we evaluate what we have learned from the last three decades, fighting the good fight of Faith and to plan for the future. “So, I sought for a man among them who would make a wall and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it…” Ezekiel 22:30
Thank you very much for all your prayers, encouragement and support, without which none of our ministries would be possible. Please pray for our ongoing outreaches in Muslim areas, training programmes, writing and printing projects and cross-border missions.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
