Jesus-Film Outreach:- De Rust and Surrounding Areas (May 2015)

During 24th April to 16th May we reached out as a team at De Rust (Oudtshoorn) with the JESUS-Film. The target group was small farm communities, who, because of the distance from town, do not always have the privilege of attending regular church.

Christ-Centered Life

During the 23-day JESUS-Film outreach we showed the film JESUS, as well as other films, (Wanneer Die Dop Skop; Kruispad; Die Tydbom Tik; Magdalena) in the people’s mother tongue (Afrikaans). We always try to visit the target area 4 consecutive evenings in order to do as much teaching as possible. As the evenings continue, people attended in increasing numbers. In one of the teachings, God’s Love and Forgiveness, I usually demonstrate and emphasize the importance of living a victorious life as Christian by placing Christ on the throne of your life instead of running things your own way.

 

Mealtimes

As a team we usually have to provide for ourselves, but one of the farmers blessed us with a meal each day for a week. Before each evening’s outreach, the farmers provided soup for every person who attends. This is important, as many people come to the outreach directly after a day of hard work.

 

Spiritual Material

We not only teach on Salvation, Assurance and Spiritual Growth, but also give each person an Every Home for Christ booklet. This is not only a way to follow up new believers, but also a chance to give a person something in the hand to take home to those who did not attend.

 

Receive Jesus As Saviour And Lord

After each film show we give people an opportunity to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour. I emphasize assurance and eternal life, and then give them opportunity to respond to the invitation.

 

The Men Are Coming

In the past we experienced that the majority who usually attend the evening outreaches was mostly woman and children, but lately we find that more and more men attend and respond to our JESUS-Film shows.

If My People Pray...

...Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NLT)

 

Bless Petitions, especially for you:

My dear friend, I pray that:
Your towns and your fields will be blessed
Your children and your crops will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed.
Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.
“The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!
“The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
                              Deuteronomy 28:3-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

 

Pray for us:

Pray that the Holy Spirit himself will carry on with the good work He started in each person’s heart during the outreach.
Pray for true disciples (Matthew 28: 19) - that the people who accepted Jesus Christ will remain steadfast in Him, grow spiritually, and that they will also reach others with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Above all, pray that we will persevere in prayer, commitment and passion to fulfill our calling in the service of the King of kings.
