Africa Overland Mission
Please pray for the Frontline Fellowship Mission team involved in a 7 month, 11 country Africa Overland Mission. Tonnes of Bibles, Gospel booklets, Discipleship training materials, audio visual materials, and Manuals have been prepared, printed, packaged, pre-positioned and are being transported by this team for a series of Evangelistic outreaches, Discipleship Training Seminars, Great Commission Seminars and Reformation Conferences.
Bibles for Africa
By God's grace, a 17 tonne shipment of Bibles and books was received just in time for the Livingstone Bicentennial. Most of the Bibles received from this 20-foot container will be distributed in English speaking countries where Dr. David Livingstone pioneered the Gospel, a century and a half ago: Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Tanzania.
Over 1,000 participants took part in the inspiring Ministers Conference at KwaSizabantu Mission in KwaZulu. 100 Delegates came from the French speaking world alone. Participants from all over Africa and Europe enjoyed fellowship, worship and ministry together. Frontline Fellowship distributed over 40 boxes of Bibles, Study Bibles, Discipleship books, Gospel booklets, tracts and audio visual materials, in numerous languages, to the participants. Many other boxes were entrusted to ministers and missionaries to distribute in their home countries, or fields, as far afield as Mozambique, Malawi, Angola, the Congo and Benin.
The Africa Overland Mission is just one of a series of initiatives being launched by Frontline Fellowship during the 200th anniversary of the birth of Dr. David Livingstone. Frontline Mission teams will be following in the footsteps of David Livingstone, building on the solid foundations he laid and harvesting areas where Livingstone first ploughed the hard stony ground and planted the Gospel seed. We have launched the www.livingstone200.org website and a Dr. David Livingstone Facebook page. A special David Livingstone - Missionary Pioneer PowerPoint has been placed on Slideshare, accessible through our www.frontline.org.za and www.livingstone200.org websites. Other PowerPoint presentations on The Life and Legacy of David Livingstone are being prepared for presenting to schools, churches, colleges and conferences. Frontline Mission teams will be conducting special Discipleship Training courses and Evangelistic crusades in areas first opened up to the Gospel by Missionary explorer David Livingstone.
2013, also marks 7 years of three dynamic ministries which we are involved in. 7 Years ago we began weekly meetings of the Reformation Society. During these 7 eventful years, the Reformation Society has published a number of books based upon the presentations given: The Greatest Century of Reformation, The Power of Prayer Handbook, Reforming Our Families, and Victorious Christians - Who Changed the World. 4 Boxsets, 170 audio CDs and 10 MP3s have been produced of lectures presented at the Reformation Society, including: Heroes of the Faith, Understanding History, Soldiers for Christ, South African History, The Reformation, and many more. The www.ReformationSA.org website and more recently the www.Reform500.org website are treasure-troves of great historical, biographical and Reformation materials and resources. Our new Reformation 500 Facebook page has a weekly reach exceeding 16,000 on occasion.
Seven years ago Livingstone Fellowship was launched and from these services, numerous books have been produced, including: The Ten Commandments - God's Perfect Law of Liberty, The Apostles Creed - Firm Foundations for your Faith, Practical Discipleship and Answering Skeptics. We have also produced over 240 Livingstone Fellowship sermons on audio CD along with numerous audio boxsets and MP3s. Livingstone Fellowship sermons have been downloaded many thousands of times from our www.livingstonefellowship.co.za website and from www.sermonaudio.com.
Seven years ago, March 2006, the first edition of JOY! Magazine was published. Well over three million copies of JOY! and JUIG! Magazines have been printed over the last 7 years, impacting an estimated 12 million readers. There are an average of 42,000 words per issue, over 460,000 words to proofread each year. I have averaged writing over 30 articles per year, and many of the articles I write for JOY! are also translated into Afrikaans for JUIG! Magazine. JUIG! Namibia is another successful version of JOY! Magazine and now JOY! is being launched in America as an electronic magazine available online.
Last year we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the launch of Frontline Fellowship, and 21 years of Africa Christian Action. We have now been conducting Biblical Worldview Summits for 22 years and Great Commission Camps and Courses for 15 years. This year is our 18th year of broadcasting Salt and Light, weekly, on Radio Tygerberg. As well as 18 years of Christian Liberty Books ministry.
Africa for Christ
Please continue to pray for our Reformation 500 FIRE (Fellowship for International Reformation and Evangelism) movement as we seek to mobilise the 4,000 congregations and 2 million members linked under the Christian Action Network to work for Biblical Reformation and pray for Spiritual Revival throughout Africa.
Reformation FIRE for Africa
Christian Action Network members are now established in 15 African nations (Burundi, Cameroon, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Zambia). A special Coalition on Revival Reformation 500 FIRE Manual has been compiled for Leadership Training Courses and over 9,000 copies of The 95 Theses for Reformation Today leaflets have already been distributed.
"Declare His Glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised, He is also to be feared…" 1 Chronicles 16:24-25
Please pray for our ongoing Missions and outreaches.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
