Internet Ministry in South Africa

Prayer Letter : October 2018

JESUS-film Outreach

During the first two weeks in August Daniel and I had the opportunity to successfully reach out with JESUS-film for 9 days in Mosselbay at a shelter for homeless people, Leeu-Gamka at the community hall and a school, as well as in Prins Albertweg.

As usual we not only concentrated on Salvation, but also emphasized the importance of Spiritual Growth through Assurance of Salvation & Confession of sin (Spiritual Breathing).

 

Biblical Truth

Jesus didn't command us to make church-members, but to go and make disciples of all nations and teach them to obey everything He has commanded us. (Matthew 28:18-20)

 

Praise God For:

  • Good health, happiness & provision in our & our children’s lives.
  • Faithful supporters who's support enable us to maintain an effective ministry.

 

My Prayer for You:

In Isaiah 58:11 we read: “The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.”

The Lord gave me this verse a few weeks ago when I experienced a big concern in my life, and it gave me new hope.
Today I also pray this Bible verse over you and your loved ones.

 

Our Prayer Requests:

Pray for the 3 legs of our ministry:

  • E-MENTORING: Incoming requests from around the world are ministered to through prayer and spiritual material.
  • INDUSTRIAL MINISTRY: Weekly spiritual messages to workers of local businesses.
  • JESUS-FILM OUTREACHES: On farms in the Western- and Southern Cape.  Pray specific for 2 upcoming events = 22-25 October in Pearly Beach, and 19-23 November in Nuy Valley near Worcester.

The Haven Shelter to 50 homeless people in Mosselbay
After the end of the JESUS-film I carefully explained the path of salvation to them.
I could testify how the same prayer, 44 years ago, radically changed my life to never be the same again!!!
My invitation to them to pray the same prayer with me were met with enthusiastic shouts of "Yes! Yes!" and raised hands!!

 

Leeu-Gamka Community Hall
Spiritually hungry, these 60 people watched in fascination as Jesus been crusified.

 

Leeu-Gamka, Dutch Reformed Church
The JESUS-film in the Dutch Reformed church were also attended by members of the VGK church.

 

Leeu-Gamka School
On invitation I did the Bible opening at the school.
All 600 pupils enthusiastically put up their hands as indication they want to pray to invite Jesus into their lives.
Two days later the headmaster gave me another opportunity to go back to the school for a follow-up session.

 

Prince Albertweg School Building
Small town with only 16 houses!
An elderly man, who suffered a stroke, came in a wheelchair. Although he is paralyzed and can’t talk, one could see from the movement of his mouth that he prayed the prayer to receive Jesus as his Saviour and Lord.
