Help for Family in Swaziland

Help for Family in Swaziland

I’m continually learning what it means to take courageous steps of faith and sacrifice for the sake of Christ’s Kingdom and the poor among us. It started with a typical email from the field.  In Swaziland, there is a mother Nomsa and her four children whose husband just passed away from AIDS. They came to […]

Tools to Share the Gospel in Uganda

Tools to Share the Gospel in Uganda

As the Karimojong in Katwe, Uganda have spent much time preaching to and reading the Bible with their people, it has become increasingly apparent that they need a tool to use to make the Gospel easier to understand and pass on. This has led us back to a storying approach, so that even those who […]

Prisoners in Zambia Receive Hope

Article submitted by John & Cathy Potter, Field Coordinators in South Africa

These are the highlights of my recent trip to Zambia. However the Lord always surprises us with many other answers to prayer like:

 Miracle for Chingola Prison

As the team baptized the last prisoner in Chingola the chaplin approached the team and asked whether we would help to build a chapel for the prisoners. We asked what materials were need and then said we would pray about what could be done. After ministering at a church in Kitwe we were approached by a businessman who wanted to know what needs there were in our ministry. We shared with him about the need to finish the chapel in the Chingola prison. After sharing he said he would have a truck loaded the next day with all the materials and have it delivered to the prison. What a mighty God we serve!

Helping the elderly

Whilst visiting the Kabwe Maximum security prison we met a very old lady. She had no family and was kept by the prison because there was no one to care for her although she had finished her prison sentence. The team was able to assist her with money for charcoal and food. I will never forget how thankful she was. It is such a privilege to be part of God’s work.

Two young pastors receive new bicycles

On one Sunday we went to Chondwe prison where we shared the gospel. A seven hour return journey but well worth the drive. Many gave their hearts to the Lord and were baptized. Just before we preached we met two young pastors who had also come to share the gospel with the prisoners. They were both at Bible school and had borrowed two bicycles to attend the service. Elizabeth Ratliff (MVI Field Coordinator in Zambia) felt led to bless the two young pastors with their own bicycles so that they could keep up the good work. The look on their faces was incredible to say the least. They left that prison having received a miracle of God’s provision for their ministry. It was just so wonderful to see what God did in the lives of these two pastors. I would love to have been there when they got home and told their families about their unexpected blessing.
