Greetings to you all in our wonderful Saviour’s Name.
As we will soon be celebrating the miraculous birth of our Saviour, let us ponder on His name.
Matthew 1 v 21 says: You are to give Him the name “Jesus” because He will save His people from their sins, and in verse 23 it says: They will call Him “Immanuel” which means God with us.
We marvel again that God sent Jesus into the world as a baby to be our “Immanuel.” We know later that Jesus died on the cross to show His unfailing love to each of us and by redeeming us from all our sins. We as believers can rejoice in our full redemption and live in hope of heaven where we will see Jesus face to face, in His glory, when that day dawns.
Greetings to you in our Saviour's Name.
Last month has flown by so quickly. We want to say thank you again for the church's personal gift, we really appreciate your love and interest in us and our media ministry. You are part of our team in spreading the Gospel to children. Many thanks for your prayers. God is working out His plans for us so that we can give Him the glory due to Him. We are preparing to film lesson 5 of Vol. 2, of the puppet DVD.
Dear Peter & Claremont church,
We want to say thank you very much for your love and concern through all our hard times with Charmaine's illness. We appreciate the way you and the church have been praying for us for a long time during this period. May God bless you in a special way as He knows best.
Dear Friends and Partners in spreading the Good News of Jesus to children,
We are reminded again that Jesus became Man so that He could redeem us and give us Eternal Life, when we believed on Him and received His wonderful gift. Matthew 1:21 is so powerful: “She will give birth to a son and you are to give Him the Name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.” Hallelujah, What a Saviour! He became our wonderful Redeemer and Lord in whom we will rejoice for ever.
Greetings to you. We trust you had a good weekend.
Dale, Madge and family have finally moved into a house in Kuruman over the past weekend. On route Madge had an accident, she went off the road and hit a culvert. It was a miracle that the car didn't roll and 7 month old Jonathan was strapped in his seat next to her. The airbag popped open on impact. The right front wheel and the suspension was damaged badly, so the car is a right-off. Madge had an Xray at the Vryburg hospital, but she is just bruised. Jonathan doesn't seem to be hurt at all. Dale was able to drive his car to Kuruman. They now have a hired car until the insurance pays out then they will have to get another car for Dale to get to work and back. We were very shocked to get this news but we are so grateful that God spared their lives.
After both completing their studies at the Bible Institute, Kalk Bay, Brian & Lorraine joined Africa Evangelical Fellowship in 1974. They ministered for 11 years in the Christian Ministry to Miners. Then they had a short time in Child Evangelism Fellowship and went on to minister in Scripture Union for 13 years. After that they returned to AEF at the time that it merged with SIM. They served in the SIM (Serving in Mission) sending office for 6 years and then God called them to start a media ministry, with SIM Ethnic Focus, producing DVD media for outreach and teaching purposes. They have produced media for adults, adolescents and older children up to now. Their next project which they are developing is outreach and teaching for young children. They plan to use puppets telling the Gospel lessons. They will be filming an accomplished puppeteer and children's worker.
