Prayer and Praise Update February 2015
Changing Your World for Christ – Great Commission Camp
Our Great Commission Course began with over 80 people from all over the world participating in an intensive 5-day Great Commission Camp held out at Back to Basics, near Grabouw. The camp stretched minds and muscles as participants learnt how to change their world for Christ.
Presentations included: Turning the World Right Side Up, Evidences for Skeptics, The Law of God, Restitution and Revival, Sin and Its Implications, The Failure of Atheism and the Triumph of Faith in Russia, Reclaiming Surrendered Ground, Resisting Babylon and the Beast, Legalism and Antinomianism, Reaching Young People for Christ, Will Animals Be in Heaven?, The Message in the Music, Recognising God’s Voice, and Christian Action.
Practical Hands On Skills
Workshops included: an Evangelism Workshop incorporating Way of the Master and Evangelism Explosion principles, self-defence and Bushcraft Survival Skills. We also put feet to our Faith by sharing the Gospel one-on-one in the streets of Grabouw.
Taking a Stand for Life
Following the Great Commission Camp, the three-week Great Commission Course continued with 22 participants from as far afield as Botswana, America, Malawi and Congo. Outreaches undertaken included a demonstration, prayer vigil and side-walk counselling outside Marie Stopes abortuary. Taryn spoke with the boyfriend of a woman who was considering having an abortion. He seemed to be impacted by the conversation and claimed that he would try to persuade her not to murder their child. Please pray for this couple that they would choose Life! We sang Amazing Grace with Piper James leading on the bagpipes and Jesus Loves the Little Children and prayed for lives to be saved and the abortionists to come to repentance.
Jesus – The World’s Greatest Revolutionary
As the ANC hired out Cape Town stadium for their 103rd anniversary rally, we seized the opportunity to evangelise the comrades attending the rally. We distributed tracts such as “The World’s Greatest Revolutionary” and “Where Will You Spend Eternity?” and engaged in numerous one-on-one personal discussions.
National Day of Repentance March for Life and Parliamentary Prayer Vigil
Cape Town, 2 February 2015: a March for Life to Parliament was organised by the Christian Action Network to mark the 18th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion. This is the 18th year that the Christian Action Network has organised a National Day of Repentance.
Marches for Life Around the World
The March for Life in Cape Town comes in the wake of the 10th annual March for Life in Paris, France (25 January) to remember the thousands of lives lost in abortion. Remarkably, over 45,000 people attended the March. In Washington DC USA, despite freezing weather, over 500 000, mostly young pro-lifers, took part in the annual March for Life on 22 January.
The National March for Life in South Africa will take place in Durban on Sunday, 4 October 2015.
Marchers in Cape Town carried miniature coffins, Christian flags and crosses and were led by a hearse. A new red six metre billboard trailer, with the words, “Abortion is Murder”, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” (Proverbs 31:8), and “Choose Life, so that you and your children may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19) accompanied the marchers.
Call to Repentance
Pastors from different denominations, took part in the procession and gathered afterwards to pray outside the main gates of Parliament in Cape Town. Participants at the Prayer Rally prayed a Scriptural Imprecatory Prayer, calling on the nation and government leaders to repent of the national sin of abortion and warning of God's Judgement if they do not Repent.
Steve Swart, ACDP Member of Parliament and Member of the Justice Portfolio Committee, told participants of the Prayer Rally that he believes that the abortion legislation will be over-turned and that one day there will be a memorial at Parliament to remember the millions of babies killed by abortion.
The Most Basic Right
The Right to Life is the most basic right. Without the Right to Life, all other rights are meaningless. We cannot consider ourselves a society that values human rights if the most innocent and helpless of all people - pre-born babies are denied the right to life.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Proverbs 31:8
40 Days for Life – Cape Town
If you are in Cape Town, you can be involved in a life-saving prayer project that will take place from 18 February to 29 March 2015, outside Marie Stopes abortuary, 91 Bree Street. Unite with many other cities for a peaceful, prayerful, simultaneous pro-life outreach – 40 Days for Life. We pray that this effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion.
Since the first coordinated 40 Days for Life campaign took place in 2007, local campaign leaders have reported these blessings — God’s answers to their prayers:
3,336 total campaigns, 559 cities, 27 countries, 650,000 individual participants, 9,699 lives saved from abortion, 107 abortion workers quit, and 59 abortuaries closed!
KwaSizabantu Ministers’ Conference – 9-11 March, KwaZulu Natal
The next KwaSizabantu Ministers' Conference is confirmed for 9 – 11 March 2015, D.V. This invitation to the next Ministers' Conference in South Africa 9 – 11 March (from Monday evening to Wednesday evening) includes yourself, as servant of the Lord, as well as your spouse and any colleagues or friends who are involved in Christian ministry.
When the Kwasizabantu co-workers rebuilt the auditorium after it had burnt down in 2008, they painted the words “Lord, abide with us” in different languages above the pulpit. We are so dependent upon Him, especially in the times in which we live. The Emmaus travellers walked with the Lord Jesus, not realizing what was happening, but they were helped and their eyes were opened by inviting Him in (Luke 24:29). May God grant that as His servants we too will have such close fellowship with the Lord that we will be able to discern the times and be true and faithful watchmen on the walls in a time of much error and deception.
Here are some of the speakers who will be addressing the meetings, the Lord willing:
Dr Peter Hammond, Director, Frontline Fellowship
Rev Nthokozo Nhlabathi, Co-worker, KwaSizabantu Mission
Rev Erlo Stegen, Director, KwaSizabantu Mission
Ds Danie Steyn, Former Director of Radio Pulpit
Prof.Dr. Jacob Thiessen, Dean, Faculty New Testament, Private Theological University Basel (STH Basel), Switzerland
Dr Albu Van Eeden, CEO, Doctors for Life International
More details of speakers and their topics will be forthcoming and available on our website: www.kwasizabantu.com closer to the time.
Food and accommodation is freely provided for. Kwasizabantu will assist those who arrive by plane or bus from far away, with transport to and from the King Shaka International Airport and Durban station/bus-stop.
