Effect of Outreach
In this village our tent stood for 9 days with an average daily attendance of 25 people. This was tough for us to accept, but we soon realised why this was happening. Every night when we played worship songs to draw the people the local shebeen and sangoma made louder music than we could due to our smaller sound system. It was just not a spiritual battle but a volume battle! We could not win the volume battle, but the spiritual one was won.
Over the nine days we were blessed with 16 healings of people who experienced severe pain before we prayed for them, but felt no pain afterwards.
On the last night, with a full tent of about 60 people, we felt that the spiritual battle in this village had been won. We are planning to distribute tracts from All Nation Gospel Publisher to sow a seed in each house so we can return to the village in 2020 to bring in the harvest.
Day to day aspects of outreach
In this community, we focused on Gospel preaching because every outreach is unique, depending on the needs of community in which we are serving.
Team Members at work
On this outreach the team had to deal with a large number of kids. The biggest challenge was to hold the small jumping castle down when the kids were playing on it.
Tent in the rural area
In every village the tent lands up in a different place. This time we ended up in a schoolyard. This made it easier for the 100+ kids to come and have fun with us. The tent stood for 9 days.
Birthday with Jesus
In this village, we started the first “Birthday party with Jesus”. The kids in the village do not experience birthday parties so we provided them with cooldrinks and a jumping castle – fun for 4 hours!
Time for reflection in the mountains of our base camp in Rustenburg. We say thanks to you, our accommodation sponsor, for this beautiful place in which we can stay at no cost and recover our strength for every busy day.
