NEW YEAR’s MESSAGE

Greetings on this first day in the year of our LORD 2015. Let this year be one continued as our Great God and King Jesus Christ gave His commission to each of His followers,

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. ~ Mark 16:15

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. ~ Acts 17:30,31

6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. ~ 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10

For our Lord Jesus Christ forewarned: 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. ~ Luke 13:3

Therefore brethren,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference;
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. ~ Jude 21-23

Our message to the unbelieving heathen world should mirror our Lord and Saviour’s message:

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. ~ Matthew 4:17

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. ~ Romans 14:11,12

As an exhorting, as the apostle Paul said: 1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 11:1; let us be in unity as we read:

9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. …
12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? ~ 1 Corinthians 1:9,10,12,13

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. ~ Jude 3

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory, with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. ~ Jude 24,25

Street Preaching Jesus Saviour and King

Bethlehem ~ An Email, Standard Bank, the Town Hall and Dihlabeng Mall

I am humbled and share this as an encouragement to the Bride of Christ. Received an email from "Pulengmosia3" at 05:27 on December 21, 2014 that reads as follows:

I Thank God about you brother Gary Stephen, may God bless you in everything you do…don’t stop preaching and letting people know their God. It was for the first time seeing someone preaching in town…God bless you and you left the mark in Bethlehem Free State…love you brother

Mosia

This was in reference to the open-air preaching on December 20th.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Headed out again today December 22, 2014, to open-air preach and make Gospel tract distribution to all who would hear and receive the Word of God. Earlier spoke to a Sotho man named Philip in a queue in the Standard Bank who was very receptive to the Word of Truth. Others also overheard and our prayers are for them all that God will draw them and they will respond in repentance and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.

Later outside the Town Hall I preached from John 17:3 ~

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Glory to God alone!

Town Hall 001 Town Hall 002 Town Hall 003 Town Hall 004 Town Hall 005 Town Hall 006

Preached our Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified using Law and Grace outside the entrance of the Dihlabeng Mall in Bethlehem. Wasn’t surprised to hear an elderly white Christian say I must just preach the love of God for God loves everyone, when he heard me say For our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29) – whilst he was not present to hear the full Gospel of God. The text reading was:

30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. ~ Luke 1:30,31

Then another elderly white Christian couple brought me cold water. What a gesture of love. Obviously there were hearers of the True Gospel and one who holds to a false gospel for half a gospel is no gospel at all! So sad!

Soli Deo Gloria!

Dihlabeng Mall

Ballito Rage Festival 2014

This year was the tenth anniversary (2004-2014) of the Rage Festival in Ballito. From word on the street it appeared that the numbers were down from previous years (an answer to prayer) of matriculants (Grade 12ers) and other Raging party-seekers coming to party, booze and drug their way, expressing what they would think is “freedom” from school, teachers, parents and authority. Well, they had a rude awakening, for the Word of God says:

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. ~ John 8:36

Saturday November 29

On our first day at the Rage Festival, Jarryd Cairns, Reece Cairns and Candice Simpson all from Hillcrest Baptist Church and writer from Living Hope in Pietermaritzburg, went down to the main beach where we saw many youngsters publically consuming alcohol, smoking a “hubbly-bubbly” and being reckless in partying and skateboarding in the streets. Pockets of street parties were also taking place on the main road through Ballito. We engaged some youngsters in conversation and also proceeded to open-air preach the Gospel of God to those on the beach. Many rejected the preaching, but there were many that by the leading of God that also stopped to listen on the beach and up on the boardwalk. Many Gospel tracts were also distributed to all willing to receive literature. We were also confronted by a young girl named Jessica who professed to be a Christian who was clad in a bikini. She was barely sixteen years of age and said that preaching as we did was only “scaring” the revellers off the beach. We shared with this young girl the Biblical way in which to share the Gospel, the way our Lord Jesus Christ did, the Apostle Paul did, Peter the Apostle did, and many other reformed puritans of the 16th and 17th centuries did, as well as us in the 21st century do. We also through much concern brought to her attention that if she being a Christian was encouraging other boys/men to look upon her body due to her immodest dress then she would be encouraging the lust of the eyes in adultery and therefore she would be seen as an adulteress. The proof text was:

27  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. ~ Matthew 5:27,28

Well, this did not go down too well, as she had told her dad Paul who tracked us down later in the evening with her mother and sister to address why writer had called his innocent daughter an “adulteress”. Obviously the entire story was not revealed to him, but we were also castigated by them for not befriending the sinners first and earning the right to speak to them about the Gospel, like they and the Red-frogs do! We heard first hand from a member of the Red-frogs – a ministry that offers free pancakes and who pick-up drunk teenagers – that they never force the Gospel unless asked to share it. Why wait until someone is blind-drunk or drugged-up to want to be a good-samaritan when it is then too late? What one must understand, on a short mission that is dealing with rebellious persons/teenagers – and I lay the blame squarely with their parents for allowing them to come to Ballito and be reprobate in their actions – is that you can’t go and engage in friendship evangelism as the time period is short. We come to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in obedience to our Lord’s command of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8) to as large an audience as possible, and yes we engaged individuals too in one-on-one conversations showing them from the Holy Scriptures what is required of each person before a Holy, Just and Righteous God who is also merciful and gracious to sinners who will bow their knees and call upon Him in repentance for His salvation.

We had many conversations with youth, drunks, drug-addicts, the homeless, a Muslim, professing Christians and a devil-loving African man that said Satan is his father! Many people from all walks of life were confronted with the Son of Righteousness. We give all glory to God for using simple men to proclaim Truth. However, it is really sad when professing believers object as loud as the unbelieving dark and wicked world do to the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:21  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Please pray for this Muslim woman named Cathy who heard the preaching outside and came out from a deli she works in. Cathy was very receptive, asking questions and listening intently. We pray our Father was dealing with her heart. Much what was shared by us to her was a confirmation of what her husband had shared with her on other occasions. She also took much Gospel literature before going back to work. Soli Deo Gloria!

Sister Candice witnessing and discussing issues with a lady named Anna.

The homeless and destitute need the Gospel of God and much prayer. Please remember Gideon and Riaan in your prayers.

Saturday December 6

Jarryd and I went to Ballito to preach at the Rage Festival again on this day. Enroute we visited Stan and Tilly Webster for fellowship and stopped off at the Durban Beachfront and preached Jesus Christ open-air outside Joe Kool’s Restaurant. During this time in Durban we witnessed 1-on-1 with many souls. Please keep Jamisse (Mozambican), Sandile, Malcom (a homeless believer who joined us with tract distribution), Mamsi who came to Jarryd speaking to Malcom as she wanted to hear what was going down. Mamsi was open and teary eyed receiving the Word of Truth. She also enquired of a place where she could go and worship. We trust our Father will lead her in this regard and if she should contact us we are sure Stan, an elder at HBC, would be willing to direct her as he is resident in Durban.

005 006 007 008 009

We also started discussing and praising God on the water-edge with Nathi from Pietermaritzburg whilst the Gospel was being preached to the ears that would listen. Soli Deo Gloria!

Parable of the Great Supper

21 … Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled….
24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper. ~ Luke 14:21b-24

Outside a Spar convenient store in Ballito. There were a few alcohol consuming men who came to listen atop the roof of the Spar. Praise God.

013

Even when there is load-shedding (blackout) the Light still shines in a dark and wicked world!

Whilst there was load-shedding the Gospel of Christ was shared with some youngsters in the dark, who were from upcountry. Their names are: Ailene, Calvin, Nathan, Elias and Zayne. Please keep them in prayer.

We also ministered to some homeless men in the Spar parking-lot named Mark, (an Indian-man who was drunk) and John (who spoke about doing battle against the angels). Mark was really open and listened intently. Please keep these men in prayer.

There were many more persons that had one-on-one ministry that our Lord knows by name. To God be all the glory for answering our prayers of bringing those He wished to have us speak with across our paths. We are truly thankful to our Father in heaven that we did not stay home and allow people to go about without being warned and prayed for. As an encouragement to all Christ’s disciples reading this, stop hedging, and be obedient to Luke 9:23; our Lord Jesus Christ speaking ~

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

The Royal Agricultural Show, the Ukhozi FM Concert and the Comrades Marathon

This report is written, not to bring any attention to ourselves as mere “fools for Christ”, but to give and bring all honour and glory to our One True God Almighty – YHVH, Adonai – our Lord Jesus Christ! May our Lord God receive the glory which He is due for we are told in Scripture that the whole duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments, as we read:

Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

The Royal Agricultural Show 2013

During the last days of the Royal Show – leading on from our initial report earlier – we have much to bring glory to God and also show the depravity of man and his sinning ways. Whilst preaching outside the showground and giving distribution of Gospel literature to the hordes of people coming and going, we were unsurprisingly, as was the case in 2012, approached by security guards bearing a message from the Royal Show CEO Mr Terry Strachan informing us that we are not permitted to be evangelising outside on the public walkway, as can be heard on this audio. Whilst we preached the Word of God and was told to leave by Mr Strachan, incidentally on his watch in the showground the following events unfolded, which were termed in The Witness newspaper under a heading: “Week of mishaps at Royal Show.

There were three major mishaps that were reported on, which we bring to your attention –

  • On Saturday May 25, a motorcycle biker Mike Oyston (19) suffered a broken leg while performing a stunt when he crashed during a freestyle demonstration, shattering a leg after miscalculating a jump.
  • On Sunday May 26, two visitors to the show were injured when a rogue cow escaped from its enclosure. Waterfall resident Terrance Galloway sprained a hand when he was knocked over by the cow, which was eventually caught.
  • The third was the tragic death of a five year old boy Simphiwe Mbense who was killed on Thursday May 30, 2013, on one of the “funfair” rides known as the “Music Box.” Whilst we preached and handed out literature before and after this calamity to young school children, the death of this young boy was unknowingly happening right there. We recall also how a teacher escorting some school children actually said to me that the pupils are too young to understand the booklets, but we implored the children to at least give it to their parents or someone older to read it to them. The Gospel needs to be given, look what took place! Life is fleeting!

Whilst we stood at the traffic light pedestrian crossing, we had observed on more than three occasions that the ER24 medical response ambulances either arrived or departed the show grounds with lights flashing! To Mr Strachan shame on you for trying to “shut down” the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Only One Who can give life. To anyone who is accountable before God and who dies without the Lord Jesus Christ, they will go to Hell! Jesus said you must be born-again to see the Kingdom of God (see John 3:3).

Whilst we did move from our initial position of standing on the public sidewalk to the opposite side of the road, it was by God’s providence and grace that many more people would receive the Gospel through the spoken Word whilst waiting to cross the busy road and much more Gospel literature was distributed. Praise be to God alone!

The preaching is offensive to unbelievers! What we encountered were mockers and scoffers of God, men and women who reviled the preached Word. But there were also Christians who vocally praised God for His Word being preached in the open-air giving Him glory!

On Saturday June 1, we saw what religion really is all about. There was a manifestation of demonic activity that took place upon the streets of Pietermaritzburg. Brother Lungisa Zondi had been preaching salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ alone, exclusivity through the Son of God, when we were standing together afterward talking when a young twentyish Hindu man approached Lungisa sticking his finger in Lungisa’s face cussing him out with the most devilish and churlish profanity telling him that he cannot speak out against Hinduism! It was then that I confronted him and told him that he cannot speak to us with such filth and asked whether he “prays to his god with that mouth?” He then started making accusations against us for preaching in Christ’s name and against Hinduism and he was threatening towards us. We realised then why our Christian brethren are persecuted and martyred to death in countries of the Islamic and Hindu religions. He continued to threaten us with violence as he left in a tirade of anger and aggression showing us obscene signs as much more profane filth poured out of his heart through his mouth in the presence of anyone who was present, including women and children, saying he was going to fetch his Hindu friends and come back and show us what Hindus can do! That is what religion is all about. It is not speaking and discussing the convictions of your faith and trying to prove that what you believe in is true, but that the way to deal with Truth is to get rid of it by force. Demons do not fight alone, they come in force – there has to be a group of them! It is cowardice, it is the way the Devil, Satan the serpent operates. By the grace of God, we were not confronted or assaulted by them later for they never returned. God revealed the true condition of sinful man!

The Ukhozi FM Concert

The same debauchery that took place last year, unfolded again on the closing day of the Royal Show. Here is an audio preaching against the drunkenness of this generation.

communityaudioPreached outside Gate 7 at the Royal Agricultural Show on the closing day which has the Ukhozi FM Concert. Much drunkenness and sinful behaviour is prevalent. All are called to repentance!

Here is a short report by Lungisa Zondi.

The Comrades Marathon 2013

Later we left the precinct of preaching outside gate 7 of the Showground, we headed to The Oval in Alexandra Park where the up-run Durban to Pietermaritzburg 87,2kms Comrades Marathon would end. With all our Gospel tracts / booklets given out prior to arriving there Christ’s name was still raised in and amongst the rowdy environment we found ourselves. Our Scripture reference is taken from the Apostle Paul’s call to the Corinth church to run the race of life for a crown that is incorruptible.

1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

1 Corinthians 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

1 Corinthians 9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

1 Corinthians 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

In all of this, there is much, much more that has not been recorded here.

Mission Act 1:8 ~ Days 27 and 28 and a PSL Game

Day 27 ~ Saturday March 30, spent today handing out some Gospel tracts at some complexes whilst walking along College Road in Pelham on my way to stand outside the “Centenary Gates” at Maritzburg College High School, who were hosting their 150th Winter Sports Festival for Rugby and Hockey, which is part of the school’s celebration in their 150th year (1863-2013).

Stood at the main gate that all persons – staff, parents, scholars, players and officials had to pass through and was able to hand out many, many “Are You Ready?” Gospel tracts and raise my voice in proclaiming our Lord Jesus Christ on this “Passover weekend”! With security and staff present, our Great God opened the door to share His Son unhindered. A lady parent passing by also commended the preaching and had said that the ministry at the school “Youth for Christ at College” had had 35 boys commit to Christ! About three years ago, I had the opportunity of teaching “The Way of the Master” course in the evenings for some boys on the school premises. We do pray that the fruits of repentance will manifest and that many more College boys will come to faith through Biblical Evangelism!

PSL : Maritzburg United vs. Chippa United ~ Sunday March 31, I attended at the Harry Gwala DSCF2188Stadium to preach our Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified on this “Passover weekend” and hand out Gospel tracts to all the spectators arriving through the South Gate off Alexandra Road for the Premier Soccer League match. Many people heard the Good News of Salvation through Jesus’ sacrificial death, burial and resurrection which was preached to them. Whilst preaching to the souls in line, as the game had commenced and the crowds began to dwindle, I had thought no ticket was forthcoming when Nash from the printers I get my tracts printed at came by with tickets in his hands for him and his friends. I jokingly asked if he had a ticket for me, and he pulls out a brown envelope and pulls out the only ticket therein! And so I took the opportunity of going to the game with my cross – even had a security official help me through the turnstiles holding the cross for me! In the stadium, carrying the cross and separated from Nash and his friends, I made a line for the open-side stands to sit in line with the halfway line, handing out some tracts to police officials in uniform on the way to my seat. A group of African youngsters followed me to sit with me – as this game was being televised live – and it gave me the opportunity to give them tracts and speak to them about Judgment Day and salvation through Christ. I sat with the cross held-up on the seat next to me and during the halftime break the group of youngsters left me, but I ministered to two young Roman Catholic boys behind me, teaching them from the Scriptures to trust in Christ alone and not to rely on the teachings and instructions of the Roman Catholic catechism, but to rely on the Holy Bible as their final authority! Please pray for Lindo and Olwethu.

Day 28 ~ Friday April 5, brother Aziz and I together with my grandson Cee-Jay headed out into the Bombay Heights suburb. Was able to stand outside a carwash and preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified to the washing staff and patrons awaiting their cars to be washed.

We also went to Northdale Hospital as I had heard that a man my son knows had attempted suicide by an overdose of tablets and also tried to gas himself. Despite our checking various wards we were directed all over the hospital and then we were told the man “Joe” was discharged. All information was conflicting, but what materialised was that God our Father opened many other doors that allowed us to minister to patients even praying for them to receive Spiritual healing (medicine). Many Gospel tracts were handed out to patients and medical staff. I also ministered extensively to a very frail young man named Zwane who heard the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was unable to speak, but I asked him to blink his eyes if he understood what I was saying. That is how he communicated with me and he said through his blinking in response to my questioning that he has “repented” and heard the Gospel. Please keep Zwane in prayer for a miracle. On our way out our Father allowed me to preach in a corridor where the acoustics carried my voice between 100-200 meters. Many tracts were handed out as we shared the stories of Jesus Christ healing many people, including the woman with the issue of blood 12-years, and the blind and lame men that Christ healed and them with diverse diseases. Spiritual medicine came to Northdale Hospital. We were even asked at one point to lower our voices, but were never told to stop. Hallelujah, Praise God many sick and sinful people were pointed to our Lord Jesus Christ.

On our way out we were also able to preach at the outpatients’ waiting room and many heard the Truth proclaimed. At one point a Hindu man challenged the preaching of Christ alone saying he is a universalist who has a god who is not a selfish god. The Hindu man said the God of Christianity is a selfish God! He also started making allegations that “our God” allows incest in reference to me preaching that only eight souls were saved when God brought judgment upon the earth with a flood – Noah, his wife, his three sons and their three wives. Well he was shown from the Holy Scriptures that God forbids incest as I started reading from Leviticus 18:1 through 11 when he stopped me saying he gets it. Whilst going off on another tangent and saying that he doesn’t want to follow a selfish God, he walked away as I followed him reading from Exodus 20:4-6 dealing with idolatry and that the One and Only True God is a JEALOUS God! He also turned and said he does not hate God  (in reference to verse 5), but he hates me! He then turned and left through a door leading into the hospital. We pray that his conscience will bear witness against him and that he will have repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ (see Acts 20:21). It was yet another wonderful day worshipping and glorifying our great God!

Day 29 ~ Saturday April 6, brother Aziz and I headed out into the Raisethorpe area and on our cross-walking putting Gospel tracts in post-boxes I was invited into an Indian lady’s home who thought I was selling the cross! Her name is Jane and I found out that Jane had “converted from being a staunch Hindu of 56 years and came to know the True God of Christianity through the death of her son Sasha!” However there were still some things that needed to be addressed – like the idols in her daughter’s home that she shares with her Hindu daughter. From the Holy Scriptures of the Bible a teaching lesson commenced pointing out to this “baby Christian” that idols must go, and setting up “an altar” in remembrance of her deceased son is not what Scripture teaches nor Christ requires from His followers. The practice of lighting a candle in remembrance of her son was also addressed as it has Roman Catholic traits. It was a good time spent teaching Kate from the Scriptures as we dealt with her relationships with her Hindu family members and her Islamic son-in-law. Kate was encouraged to stand for the Truth of our Lord Jesus Christ and not compromise for the faiths or belief systems of her family members. We do pray and thank God for this time of correction and teaching that only our Father could have orchestrated and we pray that Kate will grow by the teachings received and that her family will come to faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the ONLY True God!

SOLI DEO GLORIA!

Mission Act 1:8 ~ Days 24, 25 and 26

Day 24 ~ Wednesday March 27, brother Aziz and I tracted Bombay Heights in Northdale and we encountered much wickedness with Hindus worshipping idol gods. Later back in the greater town centre in Scottsville, I also read from Isaiah 53:1-6 and preached at the gate of the Scottsville Gardens Pre-Primary School to the parents awaiting the collecting of their children which included some Hindus and Muslims. Please pray for all who heard the Way of Salvation!

Later in the evening, went out alone to the Scottsville Mall entrance to hand out tracts and preach Christ Jesus. Had a conversation with a couple named Lionel and Jacqueline. They are looking for a church to attend! We will pray and see what God does with this request. They have also become disillusioned with man-made church!

Day 25 ~ Thursday March 28, brother Aziz and I went and completed the roads on the outskirts DSCF2131of Pietermaritzburg in the Raisethorpe area. It was also the closing of the schools today for the ‘Easter-holidays’ and this afforded us an opportunity to engage some children on the streets which included three young men named Sphamandla, Bruce and Nkosingiphile. Please keep them in prayer for true repentance and faith – they were surely challenged! Whilst we spoke to these three men it also allowed us to wait until 10am when the Northbury Secondary School closed and standing on the tailgate of the Ford ‘Seed-sower’, using it as a pulpit, I preached Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Small groups of children gathered round to listen to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the neighbouring houses across the road with their Hindu flags got to hear that their idols cannot save anyone! Please pray for the souls who heard the Truth that God would save them.

In the early evening, my wife Tammy and Cee-Jay joined me at the Scottsville Mall entrance to hand out Gospel tracts as the Gospel of Jesus Christ was shared with a crowd who had gathered after I used the slight-of-hand “red-light-thumbs” to draw a crowd. Had a conversation also with a car-guard named Sibusiso (“Blessing”) – I implored him to get right with God as he said he had believed before, but he has a drinking habit now!

Day 26 ~ Friday March 29, headed out today to cross-walk some roads in Pelham with my wife Tammy and Cee-Jay. They were up ahead of me resting as I had taken to another part of Christie Road when I had a situation where a dog came through a fence and the owner kept saying a ‘command-word’ that had the dog barking and lunging at me. Rebuking the dog kept him at bay three times, then I rebuked the owner calling out: “Stop setting your dog on me you pagan!” No response from him as our gracious God delivered me safely from that situation.

Please also check out the photograph journal by clicking the photo hereunder and do join us in praying for the souls reached that they will come to repentance and faith in our great God Jesus Christ the Righteous.
