World Cup Outreach ~ Sello’s Diary

During the last thirteen days the Brethren that met for the World Cup Outreach in the Gauteng and North West Provinces have also met new brothers and sisters in Christ who have boldly stepped out of their comfort zones and allowed Almighty God to glorify Himself through them. We hope to have reports posted by all the Brethren who laboured in our Lord’s harvest to the Glory of our Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Sello Rasephei reading God's Word in public

To ‘kick-off’ we will start with Brother Sello Rasephei from Pretoria who has been keeping the following journal for God’s Glory and he also broke the sound barrier for the very first time with the public proclamation of God’s Word. Here are extracts and the links to read more at his blog Burden4Souls :

My participation in World Cup Evangelism started when I received a weekly newsletter update from Way of the Master on the 20th April, and they highlighted that they have been able to ship 100 000 tracts to a South African ministry for distribution during the World Cup.

So I contacted Living Waters (of which Way of the Master is its TV ministry) to find out if I can get my hands on these tracts. A Living Waters correspondent, Oracio Sandoval, referred me to Gary Crous of Luke 9:23 Ministries and as they say the rest was history. Gary told me about the Evangelism Bootcamp that has been arranged for all those who would like to participate in World Cup Evangelism.

World Cup outreaches are getting better every day, and it is definitely the best time of my Christian life. Years from now I will look back at this few weeks and I’ll conclude that they were the turning point in my Christian life, and I got closer to God than I have ever been in my two and a half years as a Christian.
