The work of evangelism and discipleship continues at WITS University

The work of evangelism and discipleship continues at WITS University and God continues to give us opportunities to share the Gospel and disciple students.

An update on Sibahle. Remember I mentioned that his father killed his mother and then killed himself. Well, Sibahle continues to faithfully come for our weekly Bible study. In fact, we have now advanced to Book 3 of our discipleship series and the group has grown to three students (photo – Sibahle is in the blue t-shirt)


Please continue to pray for Sibahle’s well-being. He shows such faith and joy and is eager to grow.
 

Unfortunately, the fourth member of the group, Ofentse, has had to discontinue his studies. He was studying mechanical engineering but sadly could not continue. He is very keen to go into full-time Christian service, but in the meantime, he is trying to get into a diploma programme at one of the colleges. I was privileged to lead Ofentse to the Lord two years ago. Please pray for him at this difficult time of transition. Please also pray for Dean (with the NY cap); he has a skin condition that is susceptible to the sun and heat. The other guy, Mandla,  is a keen musician. I took him to a music recital recently. All four have gone out sharing their faith with me at least once.

 

The privilege of randomly speaking to students is that you often get to share the gospel with students who are struggling with different concerns and problems. I met a Nigerian post-graduate student named Ebenezer the other day. He said he prayed to receive Christ many years ago but was not walking with the Lord and felt that God couldn’t help him in his struggles. I tried to encourage him with my own experiences and prayed with him as well. Please pray for him.

 Please pray for a number of students who eagerly pray to receive Christ, but then don’t turn up for follow-up. It’s sad that they are missing out on the blessings of Christ.

 

We took some (smiling and laughing) students to the Rezolution Christian Conference in Randburg recently

I mentioned in my last letter that we would be training students on how to share their faith and disciple others. Unfortunately, this did not take place. Not enough students were available on the day of training.

Your support and prayers are greatly appreciated.

#UBUNTU 2017

 

The journey #UBUNTU2017 for us and the students was amazing. Trusting in the Lord for what seemed unthinkable, but He did it from Cape-Town to Kwazulu-Natal and back again.
The conference was a big success, students where leading students, they were engaged, inspired, and motivated by the Power of the Holy Spirit. The students will now take the Gospel to every Student and begin a Spiritual movement on their Campus, so that every Nation can have sincere Christ following Leaders. They are the future, the future is bright please keep them in your prayers.

Ok so what Ubuntu meant to me: I went to Ubuntu so discouraged in my walk with God and finding no purpose to continue pursuing fellowship with Him. At Ubuntu I meat young people on fire for the Lord. Hungry to serve Him and to see the gospel spread to all nations. Through prayer, fasting and fellowship with other believers I found my heart being encouraged by the Lord and just finding purpose in the great commission.

UBUNTU was nothing short of life changing to me.  Not only did I get my healing, but I met amazing people.  I saw how quickly I have grown to truly love people I just met.  That is the true meaning of UBUNTU!

Ubuntu 2017. Being one in the body of Christ, by experiencing his presence in every activity, be it quiet time, praise and worship, playing on the beach with strangers and sharing the Gospel. Being one and showing love and support for one another. Ubuntu gave me experience. The fact that languages limits us from understanding one another, when we sing his presence makes us understand one another. It really does not matter what tribe, nation or culture you from Ubuntu makes us one.

STUDENTS CONFERENCE ZAMBIA

PAMOJA AFRICA” is the name of the all African students’ conference designed by Campus Crusade for Christ in Africa. PAMOJA is a Swahili word meaning “Together”.

What a Conference it was! It was epic, magnificent, fantastic, totally awesome and Super Cool. A wonderful team of 27 people from Campus Crusade for Christ-SA took a road trip to Zambia, Lusaka to attend this conference. We had 3 full-time staff, 7 young professionals, 2 bus drivers and 13 students. I had the BEST TEAM BUILDING OF MY LIFE IN THE BUS.

We slept 2 nights in the bus to Zambia and one night back home. We sang, we prayed, we had braais, shared and ate together, we joked, we laughed, we encouraged one another, exchanged blankets and sleeping bags, etc. This Trip created a community of Christ-centered, like-minded and compassionate group of young people that are ready to turn our campuses and the market place upside-dawn. All the speakers at the conference were on point and gave us delicious food for thought.
