Update from Africa
Posted in: International
“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20
With dedication and determination, three staff and volunteers carried out a mission of evangelization, psychological and spiritual support to the BIR (Rapid Intervention Battalions) soldiers in Man O War Bay. Their focus of ministry was to reach 1,500 new recruits and other military personnel with the good news found in the story of Jesus’ birth, life, and ministry with an evangelistic film.
In addition, the Military Ministry team showed a film called Walking with Jesus – Africa which enables a new believer to get a foundation of understanding about the Christian life. They could not count the number of people who agreed to make Jesus Christ their personal Lord and Savior because there were so many of them!! The team was also allowed to distribute more than 1,700 Gideon Camo New Testaments and 350 Blue New Testaments to those eager to read more about Jesus and His ministry.
Thanks be to God, the commander of the unit, offered space inside the barracks for the film showings and distribution of the Bibles. This allowed the team to not have to spend so much to rent a room and gave greater security for the event. Be in prayer for these new believers and that He would raise up some Christian leaders from this group.
God is alive and well in Africa!
