PRAYER FOCUS: SEPT 28: SOUTH AFRICA
Our nation was shocked at the onslaught of violence we witnessed not long ago and have stood together against it as Christians of all backgrounds joined together in prayer.
- Pray that the Lord will turn what was meant for evil into good and usher in revival!
- Pray for the Lord to continue to use our small team to help bring many Africans across the continent to know and follow Him
Derek’s teaching is needed now more than ever, and people who call us are so excited to get it.
...Outreach Reports – South Africa...
We thank God for the amazing reach of Derek’s videos on our YouTube
channel. This time last year, we were streaming 5,882 hours per month
(16,451 views) of Derek’s English messages into South Africa. This year,
we are streaming over 30,000 hours per month (136,589 views)! This is
an increase of over 500 percent! Many hours of work have been done to
optimise our YouTube channel that is now bearing good fruit worldwide.
Work also continues on uploading all 13 African language Foundations
DVDs and CDs. Derek’s radio programmes were sent to a pastor who
is very involved with broadcasting in Kwa Zulu Natal (a hotspot of the
recent violence). We also sent the Zulu Self-Study Bible Course and
Foundations DVDs. We are also getting requests for more teaching
as a result of our radio broadcasts on stations in Pretoria and Cape
Town. Simon and Alison Baty are donors in South Africa who manage
a grape and citrus farm and employ migrant workers and also
staff/families who live on the farm. They share Derek’s teaching with
them and recently were sent 40 copies of Afrikaans material, including
the Self-Study Bible Course, Appointment in
Jerusalem and Foundations teaching, along with Foundations DVDs in
English, South Sotho, and Tshwana.Pastor Stemmet had a successful
two-month trip around the Cape. He met many Afrikaans people and
gave them Derek’s material. He also met with S.A. Police College
students. A group of 30 men were baptised and now have a Bible
study using Derek’s book, Bought with Blood.
