This year Straatwerk marks 50 years of regular outreaches on the streets of Cape Town. A Frontline Fellowship team joined in with Straatwerk's regular Friday evening outreach on the streets of the inner city.
50 Years of Ministry
Rev. Pieter Victor founded this dynamic evangelistic ministry in 1965. For 50 years Straatwerk has been mobilising Christians onto the streets of the inner city to win prostitutes, pimps, night club customers and other street people to the Lord.
"And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed." Joshua 23:14

Last week I had the privilege of travelling through to Mpumalanga to present a week of lectures at Back to the Bible Training College. This year BBTC celebrates 25 years of providing an intensive three-year training programme for pastors, teachers and Evangelists. The curriculum takes students through every book and chapter of the Bible and brings in lecturers from around the world to train the students in Doctrine, Theology, Hermeneutics, Homiletics, Comparative Religions, Evangelism, Counselling, History and a host of other vital subjects "That the man of God may be thoroughly equipped, to do every good work."
Pioneer Missionary Hudson Taylor declared: “God’s work, done God’s way, will never lack God’s supply.”
The Will of God Will Never Lead You Where the Grace of God Cannot Keep You
Hudson Taylor not only pioneered the first Inter-denominational Mission Society, but the first Faith Mission. Convinced that “God’s servant is God’s responsibility” and that “The will of God will never lead you where the Grace of God cannot keep you”, Hudson Taylor determined not to engage in fundraising, but to concentrate on the Mission God had entrusted him with.
33 Years ago, as God laid the vision of launching Frontline Fellowship upon my heart, I determined to follow the example of Hudson Taylor in launching Frontline Fellowship as a Faith Mission.
