I trust all is well. We need prayer. I am thinking of getting a new vehicle and would pray and ask for your support if possible. I already have a $10 000 amount if I can raise another $10 000. I probably have $3000-$4000 toward the $10 000 now. This won't be enough but if I buy the car personally I will hire the car to the mission to help pay it off. I will also trade my
The carolla is now getting on to 300 000 kilometres and its starting to ride old. We need a 2nd vehicle in the mission and it gives better consumption than than our current cruiser.
The vehicle I am aiming at getting is the Mahindra
Please pray with Jeni and I as we seek God to fulfill this need and of course the vehicle will be used to reach people and for Gods Glory.
Blessings Koos and Jeni.
Annual Farm Workers Report
We do appreciate your prayers and especially the farmers and the Dutch Reformed Church in Moogophong who annually sponsor our annual farm workers conference.
About 63 workers attended this year and many of them come year after year. There have also been many first timers and every one appreciated the teaching and catering. Some of the catering staff have been there since the inception of the indaba.
Pastors Ishmael Mathebula, Johannes Mongwe and myself preached on topics that affect Christian living. We really want to see Jesus lifted on high. Holiness is not a high priority in our African churches and they desperately need a balanced view of Gods Character.
The delegates were very excited and appreciative of the word ministry and got perspective on things they didn't understand before. I believe for some it will be a life changing event. For others it will be just so much information. The feed back from small groups was encouraging.
We minister to a few thousand workers twice on each farm every month and its exciting to have a more intense time with the workers and the church can serve them with great food which by the watching the delegates eat is greatly appreciated.
My thanks to the participants. The farmers help us with a vehicle, fuel and a stipend for Johannes Mongwe to take the brunt of the ministry. Sometimes Gabriel and I help him. Johannes can preach between 8-10 times per week on the farms and still ministers at his local church as pastor. He often gets up super early to go and minister nearly every day. We have just added two additional farms which now makes a total of 15 farms and businesses we minister at. Please continue to pray for grace as this is an intense ministry.
We will also be having a farm workers conference in August (8-10) and we have some funds but are raising more to be able to serve the workers. Please pray to see how you can help. Already a church from Kentucky is helping make gifts for the conference and were looking at $3000 to help accommodate and feed the workers. These are really a neglected people and it is an honor to serve them thru teaching and serving them with food and gifts.
Please keep praying for Johannes to have strength. Winter is coming up and besides the heavy travel and preaching load it gets really cold in the morning and flu is a constant threat with this schedule.
Please also pray for our farmers and government. The land question is going to raise its head and we don't want a bread basket country which helps feed our economy and nation be destroyed by poor political decisions in the future.
Appreciate your prayers.
God bless. More news later on this exciting ministry.

It is with great joy I share my findings in
We gathered every morning as a team from 6-7am with local churches sharing in the crusade. Each day 3 of us taught the church leaders on different aspects of leadership. This was well received. I was particularly blessed by the quality of training given by Gospel Fire International.
The leaders asked us (IMD Africa) to come back to bring more biblical training. This was my purpose for going to
We met numerous pastors and locals who speak fluent Arabic – as well as read and write it. Please pray these men (1) would have the love in their hearts for those they once fought against and (2) we will be allowed train them adequately for Muslim Evangelism in South and North.
Jesus appointed us to go. I am asking your help. Soon I will outline a plan to raise support to reach some of these nations in
