Stopping Traffick in Malls
The Word of God is the Power of God for Salvation To All Who Believe
55 volunteers helped us distribute over 3 400 Gospel tracts and leaflets and 1 300 balloons with Scripture and pro-family messages on them. By God’s grace, during the 6 hour Mission to the malls, we were able to counsel over 24 people and explain to them the way of Salvation. Each person who was counselled through Way of the Master and Evangelism Explosion received Todd Friel and Kirk Cameron’s DVD – The Biggest Question. This is the 18th year in a row that we have organised these Mall outreaches.
STOP the Traffick!
Due to greater mall restrictions on religious organisations, we focussed on mobilising people to take action against the exploitation of women in human trafficking. Two new tracts were developed last year for our outreaches. STOP the Traffick exposes the global challenge of human trafficking and pinpoints what we can do to help set the captives free.
Hundreds of Muslims gladly received our pamphlet on “modern-day slavery” but soon they would have noticed that the pamphlet contained a Gospel presentation! We pray that many seeds will be sown through this message of “Jesus Came to Set the Captives Free!”
This year we were sadly not allowed to have a table at the biggest shopping mall in the Western Cape – Canal Walk. Most malls in he Cape Peninsula rejected our request to have a human trafficking awareness table on Women’s Day, claiming that they do not allow any religiously orientated campaigns in their mall. This despite the fact that most malls wish their Muslim customers a “blessed Ramadan and Eid.” Only Blue Route and Fairbridge Malls, and a Khayelitsha Shopping Centre accepted our request. We have also been invited to set up a table at the Kenilworth Mall Charity Day on Saturday, 24 August.
Encourage Malls to Support Christian Charities
Please leave a polite comment on the Canal Walk Facebook page, expressing your disappointment that you did not see Africa Christian Action’s table there on Women’s Day. (Despite this, Canal Walk has allowed us to have an anti-trafficking advert on their TV screens.) Please also do the same for other Malls in the Cape Peninsula, requesting them to support Christian charities that speak up for abused women.
Volunteers Needed! Kenilworth Mall Charity Day – Saturday, 24 August
Contact us if you would like to get involved the outreach at Kenilworth Mall. We will fit you in at a time that is convenient for you. If possible, join us for a morning, or afternoon shift. The morning shift starts at 10:00am. This is a great opportunity for one-on-one evangelism, discussions and counselling.
“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud.” Proverbs 8:1-3
