2017 Maritzburg District Football Association (M.D.F.A.) U10

27  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
28  And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
29  And Jesus answered him,
The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 
30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 
31  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 
32  And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: ~ Mark 12:27-32

2017 M.D.F.A. Under 10

By the grace of a divine GOD and through His blessed Son, my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, according to His will and purpose, I was chosen as an assistant coach for the Maritzburg District Football Association (M.D.F.A.) Under 10 team that participated in the SAFA Pinetown Local Football Association (PLFA) Junior Incoming Tournament that took place on 6-7 October 2017 at the Forest Hills Sports Club, KZN. The Tournament hosted teams from Gauteng that represented Rand Central, Easterns, and Pretoria, and the KZN Associations from Durban, Pinetown and Pietermaritzburg (M.D.F.A.).

For a team that came together for about three weeks before the tournament commenced, the M.D.F.A. Under 10 team performed and equipped themselves reasonably well against the well drilled teams from the Gauteng province. We were informed that a team like Easterns had already been in preparation for four (4) months leading up to the tournament. So finishing fourth out of eight teams was an achievement in itself. The squad comprised sixteen players, two coaches and a manager. The squad assembled was as per the team photo above and the squad listing hereunder:

  1. Ryan Mustard (GK – Savages FC)
  2. Thando Hlophe (Pirates FC)
  3. Andile Ngwane (Savages FC)
  4. M.D.F.A. LogoKofi Atta (Pirates FC)
  5. Baseer Abrahams (Savages FC)
  6. Siyamthanda Skhakhane (Savages FC)
  7. Curt Rogers (Pirates FC)(Captain)
  8. Cee-Jay Mulder (Pirates FC)
  9. Kaydon Adonis (Pirates FC)
  10. Malachi Momplé (Pirates FC)
  11. Tynin Sampson (Savages FC)
  12. Farhdeen Khan (Westside Lads)
  13. Azande Zondi (GK – Pirates FC)
  14. Thuba Myeni (MDAS)
  15. Deolin Marais (City Saints)
  16. Declan Pillay (Savages FC)
  • Miles Rogers (Head Coach – Pirates FC)
  • Gary Crous (Assistant Coach – Pirates FC)
  • Mrs. Leigh Mustard (Manager – Savages FC)

The following statistics record our performances. We played three matches on Friday 6 October 2017, starting off well with two straight wins, but losing in the third match. Kindly note that at Under 10 level you have nine players per team on the field with substitutes available. Here are the results:

Line-up 01 Line-up 02 Line-up 03

And on Saturday 7 October 2017 we played four matches as follows, failing to score on day two which might well have cost us a position or two. However, one should always remember that GOD knew our results and position even before it came to pass:

The players’ rewards for their wonderful performances were being acknowledged in The Witness, a local newspaper, on two occasions thanks to our Media Liaison Officer, our Manager Mrs Leigh Mustard. Well done boys!

The Witness, Tuesday 10 October 2017 The Witness, Thursday 12 October 2017In closing, my ongoing prayer in completion of this time spent with these precious boys, their parents and the coaching staff is that GOD will be merciful and all will come to true repentance and faith in the only Saviour and Redeemer Jesus Christ, the Son of the true and living GOD YEHOVAH! For,

43  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
~ Matthew 5:43-48

Soli Deo Gloria

A Tragedy on the N3

ER24 paramedics reported that 48 children have been injured in the crash‚ which forced the closure of the N3 northbound carriageway. Image IPSS MEDICAL RESCUE A tragedy took place on the N3 National Highway just outside Pietermaritzburg when a bus transporting four Under 16 football (soccer) teams from the prestige Michaelhouse College en route to play Kearsney College had what appears a tyre blowout that caused the bus to crash.

It is reported that on Tuesday 5th September 2017 a Michaelhouse student Themba Dloti (16) lost his life at the scene of the accident and 47 other injured students including staff members were rushed to hospitals to have their injuries treated. The Witness newspaper reports as follows:

Nompilo Kunene & Kailene Pillay

Pietermaritzburg – A Michaelhouse pupil was killed and 47 others were injured when the bus they were travelling in to play soccer at Kearsney College overturned on the N3 near Hilton on Tuesday afternoon.

The pupil who died was identified by the school as Themba Dloti (16) whose family are from Johannesburg.

Greg Theron, the Michaelhouse rector (principal) said a hired bus transporting four under-16 soccer teams to Kearsney College suffered a tyre blow-out going down Townhill and flipped onto its side.

When The Witness arrived at the scene the bus was lying on its side and blocking the northbound traffic lane. Among the crash debris and pools of oil were school bags with tracksuits, running shoes and sports kit spilled out of them. [Read the full report Here]Emergency personnel look at school bags and debris scattered across the N3 northbound after a bus carrying 46 pupils and four staff from Michaelhouse crashed on Tuesday afternoon. (Ian Carbutt)

Michaelhouse pupil Themba Dloti died in the crash on Townhill on Tuesday. (Facebook ) Dear friends, it is always a tragic event when parents have to bury their beloved child when it should be the other way around, and we at Repent and Believe South Africa Christian evangelical ministry send our heart felt condolences to the bereaving Dloti family and the Michaelhouse community at large praying for healing both spiritually and physically to all affected. Writer who is a Level 3 High School football referee normally takes opportunities at school matches to hand out Christian Gospel literature to pupils and staff challenging them to consider their lives in light of eternity. Life is fleeting and we never know when it will be our time to pass into eternity. It is in preparation for the unknown tragedies, such as this one, that one must make preparation to meet thy GOD,

27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: ~ Hebrews 9:27

Life is so fragile and in Scripture it is likened to a vapour, as we read,

14  Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. ~ James 4:14

Here today, gone tomorrow. Please make preparation as we present two Gospel tracts for you to read:

Evangelism at the United vs Ajax Match 2017/18

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
~ Mark 16:15,16

Ajax Cape TownMaritzburg UnitedWith the 2017/18 Premier Soccer League kicking off last weekend it was good to be out in our Lord’s harvest field once again at the local football stadium being the Harry Gwala Stadium (the former Jan Smuts Stadium).

This praise report is solely for GOD’s glory alone and  that no attention be directed our-way! “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). On the evening of Wednesday 23rd August 2017, Jono and Gary attended at the PSL football match between Maritzburg United and Ajax Cape Town.

A call for repentance Whilst handing out tracts someone made mention of the inscription on the wooden cross: “Are You Ready”? This opened the door to presenting the Gospel. A secular analogy was used to begin with. It went along these lines:

Consider you come to this football match on 23rd August 2017 at the Harry Gwala Stadium, but you have a ticket for another match to gain entrance to the FNB Stadium, you will not gain entrance to the Harry Gwala Stadium because you have an incorrect ticket. The ticket you possess is to gain entrance to another stadium at another destination. You need the correct ticket to gain entrance to this stadium at this destination. Now the same principle applies in the spiritual realm. People are going through life with many religious tickets hoping to gain entrance into the Kingdom of GOD,Raising the Name of Christ Jesus or as they put it “some better place”,  but they have the wrong ticket which is leading them to a wrong destination. You need to have the right “ticket”, so-to-speak, to gain entrance into the Kingdom of GOD which is Heaven. If you have the wrong ticket the only entrance access you will gain is into Hell – which is the wrong destination. The “ticket” you need is to be born-again through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do not have Jesus, you do not have the correct entrance access to the right destination! The devil Satan is a deceiver who sells fraudulent tickets to people who are deceived for the lustful pleasures of this life. They pursue and obtain the wrong tickets that lead to the wrong destination, whilst we evangelists come out here to warn you of your pending destruction through deception. We are pointing you to Jesus Christ, the saviour of the world.

Psalm 34:8  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

We also alerted the fans that whilst There are two ways in lifethey were coming out for some entertainment, there is no guarantees that they would go home. We mentioned the death of two spectators outside the FNB Stadium leading up to the Carling Black Label Cup match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates that took place on Saturday 29th July 2017. It is alleged that the deaths were caused due to a stampede that took place at Gate-J and that fake tickets were being sold. [The article Two killed at FNB Stadium can be read Here.] We also mentioned previous tragedies that took place at football grounds and other tragic accidents [read GAME OVER ~ A Real Tragedy ~]. A mention was also made of the late Mondli Cele (26) who played for Maritzburg United and scored the opening goal in a 3-3 draw against Orlando Pirates on the evening of Saturday 16th January 2016 and lost his life at around 5am the next morning 17th January 2016 when his car crashed into the Msunduzi River in Park Drive, Alexandra Park, just down the road from the Harry Gwala Stadium. [A newsDiscussions . . . and a crowd listening report can be read Here.] Life is so fragile and it can be taken at any moment. These events transitioned into the Gospel of mercy and grace that can save wretched sinners! And as the evening progressed leading to kick-off time there were some heckling, mocking, and reasoning. Praise GOD! Much Gospel literature was distributed as the crowds started increasing.

In closing, we request that you kindly keep us in prayer for our next PSL football outreach, Lord willing, at the Harry Gwala Stadium’s South Gate, which should take place on the evening of Friday 15th September, 2017 from about 17:30 – 20:00

Maritzburg United 2017/18 Home Fixtures @ Harry Gwala

PSL Maritzburg United The 2017/18 Premier Soccer League in South Africa kicks off on the evening of Friday August 18, 2017 and Lord willing the Repent and Believe South Africa Christian ministry will this season again be evangelising the football fans attending the Maritzburg United home matches at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg KZN. The home league fixtures are listed hereunder where by YEHOVAH’s mercy and grace the Gospel of GOD will be proclaimed by us preaching Jesus Christ and Him crucified,

28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: ~ Colossians 1:28

Are you a local who prayerfully can join the Repent and Believe South Africa outreach ministry to obediently reach lost souls? Then we can go in unity of faith and belief, 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. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:9,10

In short, but not limited to, we preach the love of GOD through the doctrines of law and grace, heaven and hell, and “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21); as we also read,

34 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. ~ Acts 2:34

If you are a born-again Christian kindly contact Gary Crous via email or by placing a comment hereunder to join us in the Lord’s harvest field. Brethren, we also kindly request that you keep these outreaches saturated in prayer for our Father to be merciful toward sinners and grant His grace as a gift to lost souls. Amen.

Two killed at FNB Stadium

It shows that life can be lost at any moment. Scripture warns,

27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: ~ Hebrews 9:27

Crowd at FNB Earlier this afternoon, sadly two males were killed and many injured during a stampede at Gate-J leading into the FNB Stadium during the seventh edition* of the Carling Black Label Champion Cup between Soweto derby rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates. It is reported by News24:

Michael Sun, MMC for public safety for the City of Johannesburg, told News24 they were not sure what caused the stampede, but it is alleged that it involved the selling of fake tickets at the entry gates. (Source)

It is for this very reason why the Repent and Believe South Africa evangelism ministry preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ outside football stadiums, for tragedies can happen at any moment. So, were those who were killed ready to enter eternity? And, Are YOU Ready?

Police have barricaded the area were two males have died during a stampede at the FNB Stadium. (Larato Sejake, News24) To help you examine your life in view of eternity, please read the following gospel tract by clicking the photo Game Over hereunder:

Game Over

This is not the first time there has been loss of life at a Soweto derby match. On April 11, 2001 at the Ellis Park stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, a stampede at an ‘Orlando Derby’ soccer match between arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates led to the death of 43 supporters.

But be reminded, the day of one’s death is never a second too late . . .

Soli Deo Gloria

Eyes on Christ 

A WARNING in love, “Eyes on Christ” DOES NOT mean being in membership of –

– the Roman Catholic church;

– the 38,000+ Protestant Denominational churches;

– the Jehovah Witnesses, the Mormons, the Seventh Day Adventists, (add in your religion), etc.

IT IS NOT following the RC catechism classes, the Westminster confession, the Baptist confession, or any man made custom, tradition or confession of faith.

IT IS NOT following the Pope, Mary, Calvin, Arminius, your favourite pastor and theologian or any other guru or false teacher, or making and worshipping a ‘god’ of your own choosing which is idolatry.

IT IS NOT using God’s or Jesus Christ’s name to score religious piety. That is blasphemy.

IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED, DEAD, BURIED, RESURRECTED AND ASCENDED TO THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER.

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

2017 PADSA Easter Soccer Tournament

We give thanks to GOD our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ for allowing us to be of service to HIM at the Easter Soccer Tournament at the Northdale Stadium as in 2016.

This year we attended on Saturday 15th and Monday 17th April 2017 where many Gospel tracts were handed out and Christ Jesus the Saviour of the world was proclaimed.

PIC000 PIC001 PIC002 PIC003 PIC004 PIC005 We met and spoke to current Pirates’ coaches and past MDFA Pirates players such as Stevie Ruiters and even a referee stopped by to chat. Also recognised by some spectators from yesteryear who also received Gospel literature.

Whilst we did have no problems with the distribution of Christian literature and speaking to players and spectators, an official organiser (?) did try to move us from our position claiming we were obstructing the thoroughfare between the main field and the top outer fields, when clearly crowd support was down on past years and there was not much foot traffic passing that way at that time! He indicated towards a place that was muddy and unclean. We however did move the ‘Are You Ready’ cross and Gospel tract holders in the opposite direction up against a pillar which had more visibility for the time we were there! Praise be to GOD alone!

2016/17 PSL Season 

Cape Town CityThe PSL football match between Maritzburg United and Cape Town City that was to take place on Friday evening the 28th April 2017 at the Harry Gwala Stadium was rescheduled to take place on the following Monday afternoon the 1st May 2017 at 15:00 at the same venue.

Early on with our neighbours at the Maritzburg United vs. Cape Town City match Gary invited some of our neighbours to the football match and handed out Gospel literature after the game. It was really encouraging when the youngsters eagerly jumped in and asked if they could hand out some tracts coming back for more tracts each time until the tracts were finished and klaar!

We were unable to attend the Maritzburg United home fixtures on Wednesday 10th May 2017 against Platinum Stars and the last fixture of the season on Saturday 27th May 2017 against Bloemfontein Celtic. However, GOD willing, we do look forward to being out in the LORD’s harvest field at the PSL 2017/18 football matches for HIS glory proclaiming the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
