2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Evangelism – Newsletter #2

We, Bill Adams (www.sfoi.org), Michael Rogers (www.livingwatersafrica.co.za) and Gary Crous (www.luke9.23evangelism@wordpress.com) have received responses from four (4) brothers in Christ who have shown a willingness to labour with us at the 2010 event. Keep praying to our Father for more laborers (Matthew 9:37, 38; Luke 10:2).

We have received the following report from Brother Nigel Titus in Cape Town who is graciously coordinating The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Draw™ Evangelism Outreach from December 4th-6th, 2009 –

On December 4, 2009, Cape Town will welcome FIFA executives, representatives of the 32 qualifying teams, the international media, and FIFA guests to the city to witness the Final Draw for the tournament at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). The Final Draw, which will take place in front of some 3 000 international guests at the Cape Town International Convention Centre will be broadcast live to an estimated audience of 150 million viewers in 200 countries.

The event is expected to have football fans around the world glued to their screens as the match order for the qualifying teams is announced. According to the City of Cape Town’s site, the Final Draw event will be attended by an estimated 8 000 people. Besides the local and TV audiences, a large number of soccer professionals and officials, associated celebrities, and sponsors will be in town for the event – bringing even more attention and visitors to our fantastic “Mother City”.

For Christians and like-minded evangelists, this presents a massive opportunity to spread the gospel and open-air preach to the thousands of fans, party-goers and tourists that will be descending upon the Mother City next week. In addition, we also hope to use this event as a good test run for the 2010 World Cup Evangelism Project which is coming up next year.

According to organizers, the main hot spots for the Final Draw will be the entire Upper Long Street, from Wale Street to Buitensingel which is to be converted into a festival zone for the Final Draw on Friday. The main stage will be situated at the Long Street baths, with several huge television screens further down towards Wale Street. The festivities will start at 12:00 noon with music and cultural performances with a South African and African flavor. Entrance to the festival is free and thousands of Capetonians are expected to congregate at Long Street to share in the world’s excitement of the Final Draw. Please also check out Cape Town Magazine.com Sport & FIFA 2010 for more information.

If you are interested in laboring with us to preach the gospel at this event, please feel free to contact us at the below numbers / email address. A final plan with all the necessary details of how we will operate will only be finalized by next week – we encourage you however to get in touch with us soonest if you wish to be a part of this event. We will also be setting aside next Wednesday and Thursday (2nd and 3rd December 2009) to earnestly seek God’s guidance in prayer and supplication on how we should approach this event. We acknowledge that our endeavors and actions will attract the attention of our spiritual enemy and we need to be sufficiently equipped and prepared before we go out.

For His Glory!

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Evangelism Newsletter #1

Dear Friend

RE.: 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP SOUTH AFRICA™ EVANGELISING MISSION

We, Bill Adams (www.sfoi.org/), Michael Rogers (www.livingwatersafrica.co.za/) and Gary Crous (www.luke923evangelism.wordpress.com/) take this opportunity of requesting your availability, Lord willing, to join us in reaching the tens of thousands of soccer fans and visitors coming to South Africa to be a part of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™. Add to this the 47.9 million (www.southafrica.info/about/people/population.htm) local people then we have the world’s largest sporting event in our own backyard where we can work with our Lord Jesus to reach His people.

You can check out the progress of the World Cup at FIFA.com and view the official website (www.fifa.com/worldcup/index.html). There are nine (9) cities that will be hosting the First Round matches in nine stadia, which are –

 Cape Town – Green Point Stadium

 Durban – Moses Mabhida Stadium

 Johannesburg – Ellis Park Stadium

 Bloemfontein – Free State Stadium

 Port Elizabeth – Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

 Nelspruit – Mbombela Stadium

 Polokwane – Peter Mokaba Stadium

 Rustenburg – Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace Stadium

 Pretoria – Loftus Versfeld Stadium

You can expect from the magnitude of the sporting event and the logistics involved stretching from the west coast to the east coast and from the southern coast through the central and northern regions of South Africa that we do appeal to ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20) to join us in fighting the good fight for souls (1 Timothy 6:12) all for the Glory of God.

The vision is to get as many obedient and faithful evangelists who love the Lord and will willingly lay down their lives, set aside their time and resources in reaching the millions for Christ so that many will hear the proclamation of God’s Law and His Gospel of Grace, compelling sinners to repentance and putting their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ (see Acts 17:30,31).

We are looking to labour with our brothers and our sisters in Christ who will preach the true biblical gospel – not a soft, candy-coated, prosperity gospel – but the True Gospel which saves unto salvation where we will allow the Holy Spirit to “reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness and of judgment” (John 16:8).

We are convinced that as you are on Michael’s mailing list you have possibly heard or have been taught ‘The Way of the Master’ (Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort), a ministry of Living Waters (www.livingwaters.com/). Please do take some time to listen to the two Foundational Messages “Hell’s Best Kept Secret” and “True and False Conversion” on their website. If you have already, please do these as a refreshing exercise, as we all are to examine ourselves (see 2 Corinthians 13:5). We are trying to make certain that whoever stands up to preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified will be reading off the same Bible pages and not flying under the radar with another gospel (see Galatians 1:6-10).

We are also hoping to put together a type of “Ambassadors’ Academy / Way of the Master” style Evangelism Boot Camp. However, what might be more appropriate would be to get those ambassadors in the nine cities who are prepared to make a sacrifice to come together and be involved in a training camp within each city. This will create an awareness of the evangelism outreach for the 2010 event. We therefore appeal to you and request those who want to be a team leader of an evangelism team in your city and those who want to host an Evangelism Boot Camp to forward the following information to gary@gdlk.co.za :

 Your full names and contact details.

 Your church and pastor’s details – a reference.

 Have you taken / taught ‘The Way of the Master’ Evangelism Basic Training Course?

 A short testimony of your faith in Christ Jesus and any ministry / mission work.

 Have you listened to the Foundational Messages “Hell’s Best Kept Secret” and “True and False Conversion”?

 Do you preach sin, righteousness and judgment by using God’s Law (The Ten Commandments) and the Gospel of Grace through the Cross, Resurrection, Ascension and Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ?

To host a team to conduct the boot camp will however require financial support so if you have any ideas please let us know by emailing suggestions / actions / support to the above e-mail address in order that the necessary arrangements can be undertaken.

The ultimate aim is to have a team of evangelists – open-air preaching and one-to-one witnessing –available in each of the nine cities, to be shepherded by a team leader (for accountability purposes) around the stadia and at the fan parks. This will be a corporate mission with prayer gatherings, transport, preferably Living Water’s gospel Tracts and/or One Million Tracts (www.onemilliontracts.com/), accommodation and meals being organized by the team leader and the members (ecclesia) of each team. We would also appreciate photos and videos to be taken at the various venues so they can be posted, hopefully, on a daily basis on the Luke 9:23 Evangelism blog in order that our brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world can be informed of the mission and also be prayer warriors for the evangelists and the souls witnessed to.

As the sporting event progresses we hope to all come together, those who are able to, in the Second Round at the venues allocated and so on to the Quarter-Finals, the Semi-Finals until we will all be united in one huge gathering at the Third/Fourth Place Play-off and the Final. This is the vision and the prayer for our BIG GOD to give Himself all the Glory!!

We hope to hear from you, if you have suggestions or plans we have overlooked, please drop us a line. To get a feel of the Lord’s work at the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup™ please check out the following links –
