Literature for Africa
We praise God for another 17 tonne, 20-foot container shipment of Bibles, books and Sunday school materials. The pallets of Bibles were immediately ear-marked for our Livingstone 200 outreaches in Zambia and Zimbabwe. These have already been prepositioned for our Mission teams to distribute to churches, mission bases, schools and colleges in these central African countries where Dr. David Livingstone first pioneered the Gospel in the 19th century.
Mission to Sudan
Despite dangers of ambush, travelling through bandit territory, instability and many frustrating mechanical breakdowns, including one occasion when they came under fire, our Missionaries succeeded in ministering throughout Eastern Equatoria, Central Equatoria, Western Equatoria, Lakes and Bahr el Ghazal. In two months they conducted 150 meetings in South Sudan, including Great Commission Seminars, Biblical Worldview Seminars, Evangelism Workshops and Discipleship Seminars. They ministered in five military bases and amongst soldiers deployed on the Northern border of South Sudan. The team reported that they had the privilege of seeing the abundant fruit of Chaplains who were first trained by Frontline Fellowship in the middle of the war in 1996. These men are still making a great impact for the Kingdom of God, planting churches and impacting military units for Christ.
"Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud." Proverbs 1:20-21
Every year, since 1995, we have conducted outreaches in shopping malls. This was the 18th year of our outreaches in the shopping centres of Cape Town. Shopping malls are the modern-day marketplaces and gateways to the city. Indeed, thousands of people seem to spend a significant part of public holidays at a mall! With advertising that often promotes anti-family values, and many anti-family films at cinemas, malls are battle sites of the World War of Worldviews. Making a stand at a mall can therefore seem intimidating, but as our new banner proclaims, we boldly seek to be on the Frontlines of the Fight for Faith, Family and our Future. Our mall outreaches are also part of our strategy to inform and involve Christians in making a positive difference in society.
