Give thanks to the Lord, call on His Name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wondrous acts.” 1 Chronicles 16:8-9
By God's grace, a Frontline Fellowship team has safely returned from a mission outreach to Mozambique, reporting souls saved during special Easter outreaches. Other teams have also succeeded in delivering tonnes of Gospel literature, Bibles, books and emergency relief aid to Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Just in time for these mission outreaches, a shipment of over eight tonnes of Gospel booklets arrived from World Missionary Press. Over 70 000 of these Scriptural booklets have already been delivered and distributed throughout Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique. Others are en-route for Angola, Sudan and Nigeria.
Peter and Tim presented over 80 lectures, Bible studies and sermons, including conducting a Transforming the Nations seminar in Kabwe, a Reformation and Revival seminar and a Muslim Evangelism Workshop in Lusaka, a Biblical Worldview Seminar in Sinda and a Reformation Conference at Petauke. They presented lectures at four Bible Colleges and two schools and sermons in seven Churches. There was an enthusiastic response to the film evangelism, with churches packed out and great hunger for the Gospel literature and Frontline Fellowship books distributed.
Tim and Peter also equipped and trained evangelists throughout Zambia and Zimbabwe with Gospel Recordings audiovisual Gospel Messengers and God’s Story VCD kits.
Peter and Victoria also conducted dozens of children evangelism programmes using Evangelism Explosion. There was a tremendous response to the Gospel outreaches in schools, hospitals and market places.
A new programme, which Frontline Fellowship is embarking on in Zambia, is the sponsoring of Christian textbooks for indigenous Christian schools.
Muslim mosques and Madressas are being built all over Central Africa and there is a concerted attempt to convert Zambians to Islam. Funded by oil money from Middle Eastern governments, Islamic propagation societies are offering “free education” to impoverished, rural populations. Many Christian families have sent their children to these Muslim schools in the vain hope that an Islamic education is better than none. Others have said that they would no sooner send their child to an Islamic school than sell them into Islamic slavery.
Also tragic is the fact that the MMD government, despite its commitment to make Zambia a Christian country, failed during the last 12 years to replace the socialist, humanist textbooks of the UNIP era with any Christian textbooks. This has meant that an officially Christian country has continued to allow its children to be indoctrinated by school textbooks rooted in the principles of secular humanism.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priests for Me; because you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your children.” Hosea 4:6
Obviously, there can be no higher priority for a nation that wants to become a Christian nation, than to ensure that its young receive a truly Christian education.
Several of the pastors in training at Frontline Fellowship’s Covenant Bible College have established Christian schools in their communities. We are seeking to provide them and others with the quality Christian textbooks needed, to disciple the next generation.
Please do pray for our Director, Peter Hammond, as he is involved in a ministry trip to Nigeria at this time. In the last week, we have received numerous reports of political unrest and riots in Nigeria, as well as persecution of Christians, including the burning of dozens of Churches and the murder of hundreds of Christians by Muslim extremists. It is to one of those volatile and violent areas that Peter has been invited by local Churches to conduct Muslim Evangelism Workshops and outreaches.
“Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men for not everyone has faith.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2
