Feb 21 South Africa Mission Trip Update

The lord answered our prayers regarding the children’s ministry! Two of the respected older Zulu men have restored order and separated the older kids from the younger. Still had about 120 or so kids but seems much more calm. We are able to pray with the children while sharing the Bible stories and activities. Char shared the story of Rahab and the Israelite spies, Kim shared the Samaritan Woman at the Well and Sharon shared the Prodigal son. We review all the stories and the children seem to be grasping the stories as well as the Evange-Cube. We had about 20 or so kids pray to receive Jesus as Lord!
 
Kim led the mid week Bible study out of James and it was well received. About 30 people from the village along with our group, many came for prayer and many prayed with and for each other.
 
Today (Thursday) was church on wheels we took 13 of us in a Land Rover to a neighboring village and shared the Gospel and prayed with people who had some connection to Hamba Ekukhanyeni. Sobering to see the physical and spiritual poverty in some of the places. One young man prayed to receive Jesus as a direct result of the training! Very encouraging! One old Granny was interested in marriage with Mike but when she was told he was married she wanted to know about Mike’s father.
 
Friday , Saturday and Sunday will all be children’s teaching days as well as hut to hut visits to people who are connected to the church here. Been a little light on pictures so I am hoping to be able to send some Friday or Saturday.

South Africa Team’s February 18th update

kids learning in South Africa 2019
Update from the SA team:
 
Sunday Church was a packed house as Ron shared the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke. It was a really blessed time as many people responded to the invitation for prayer. We had a wonderful time of fellowship after the worship service. Israel and Rachel Moore were prayed for and given a loving send off as this has been their church while in South Africa. Tim shared the Good Samaritan story also with the children’s group, about 70 kids in all and the children really seemed to understand the story as they were able to answer all his questions regarding the story and the Evange-cube.
 
Monday was a review of the adult teaching on “Who is my neighbor” by Ron. During the training as we were practicing sharing the gospel one of the men in the training prayed to receive Christ! As we went out in two groups we were able to share the Word and pray with about 10 different families in their homes. One of those was a Sangoma (witch doctor) who also prayed to receive Christ! The people from Walk in the Light did most of the praying and sharing the Word which was one of the purposes for the adult training. A very encouraging day! Monday afternoon was children’s ministry again with about 120 kids. Char shared the story of Rahab and the Israelite spies out of Joshua. The story was well done and received by some of the children but we need to separate the older and younger kids.
 
We appreciate your prayers for wisdom on our behalf as we seek a good solution. We have four more children’s ministry days scheduled as well as a carnival day.
