Africa For Christ

Dear Friends of Africa For Christ

What a joy it is to write this latest update! God is at work in so many different ways - we could fill a few pages! Below please find some of the highlights from the past month:

* Adopt A Village update
* Using soccer to reach young people
* An update from Pastor Frank
                      Report back! Adopt A Village Module 2!

Adopt a Village (AAV)
Our second AAV training took place in May. It was encouraging to hear the positive reports from the assignments given in Module 1. Some of the teaching from the first training was the importance of prayer walking and mapping. 

Sabelo from Bisho shared the following testimony:
“There was a tavern (bar) in my area which was notorious for noise and drinking. We targeted it as part of our prayer walks. A few weeks later it closed as the owner had to relocate.”          
Other teaching given was the importance of having people in your home and sharing a meal with them. Zoleka shared the following:
“I invited a family for a meal staying in my street and we ate  together. After the meal we shared the Word and prayed. That made an impact on their lives and they are now mobilizing young people and going with them to our Sunday service.” 
                    Using soccer to reach young people for Christ!

Africa For Christ believes in networking! One of our partners, an organization called 25 40, uses soccer in Canzibe, Transkei, as a means of reaching young people for Christ! In the attached photo, young people gather together with one of our church planters straight after training and do Discipleship Bible Study!
  Out of the ashes: Pastor Frank Sibanda and the work in Palm Springs!

Two months ago I shared the news of Pastor Frank and his commitment to resurrect the work in Palm Springs, just outside Johannesburg. The site is now cleaned up and the photo above shows the opening dedication service! 
Praise for:
- A successful second Adopt A Village training!
- The work that has started in Palm Springs!
- Our faithful Church Planters!

Please pray for:
- God to break down many strongholds in SA!

- The new work in Nyakallong
- Our partners in Canzibe Transkei!

Thank you for your faithful partnership, prayers and financial provision for the work of Jesus through AFC - you are greatly appreciated!

Yours in Him
