Prayer Focus: SOUTH AFRICA

  • Pray for Derek’s teaching on TV and mobile devices to reach and touch many people
  • Pray for Derek’s Israel-related material that was taken by Hope, a co-worker, for 12 Lemba leaders in Venda to be used well. The Lemba people are related to the Zimbabwe and Ethiopian Jews

Outreach Report – South Africa

Many ministries network with us to use and share Derek’s teaching, including those working with abused women and prostitutes. We thank God for these good relations, as we depend upon them to deliver Derek’s material for us while on ministry trips since we cannot mail it due to high costs and theft. A retired pastor visited towns in the Kalahari Desert last November where there is no resident pastor, taking a selection of Derek’s Afrikaans books to leave with local leaders. One lady he gave the books to works for the Government and will be doing outreaches. She was so pleased to get them she even read some during the night! A pastor was so impressed with what his young people had learned through Hope’s teaching of Derek’s Self-Study Bible Course and Foundations teaching in Venda that he asked her to come teach in the villages in Limpopo Province.
