Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We would like to update you on the Lord’s work at Moreson Mission.
October had been quite a busy month, especially since such a lot of our workers were out for outreaches or special services. Our Director, George Ochse, went on a medical mission outreach to Zambia, organized by the international organization Doctors For Life. Some of our other workers went to Kwasizabantu Mission in Natal for special services. These services are a tremendous blessing and a time of spiritual refreshment and drawing near to our Lord Jesus.
Back home at Moreson Mission we had our hands full to cover all the different aspects of the work, also gearing up for a very busy schedule in November. Apart from preparing for the Minister’s Conference in November as well as the mission outreach to the Northern Cape, we had some other obligations as well. In the beginning of October a worldly music festival was held in the nearby town of Malmesbury. On request of the minister’s fraternal of Malmesbury we parked a caravan next to the ticket office and distributed tracts to those attending the festival.
We also were privileged to host some of the attendants of the third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization, especially our brothers Pastor Kim from Korea and Pastor Choi from the Korean Church in Belgium. It was a blessed time of fellowship and sharing in between their busy schedule attending the congress every day for seven days from nine in the morning to nine in the evening. The Thursday of the Congress week was a day off, so we took our Korean Brothers for some sight seeing around the Cape Peninsula. The first Sunday after their arrival Pastor Kim greeted the congregation during the Sunday service, and then played Amazing Grace on the church organ while the congregation accompanied in singing.
We thank the Lord for those that continue to contact and come to the mission for help. Sadly, most want the Lord Jesus to do a work in their lives, but when it comes to following the Lord Jesus with all our hearts and denying ourselves, not many are willing to pay the price.
Our little Christian school is now going for the second quarter. We are grateful for the dedication of our workers in making it a success. Those involved in the school are dedicated to the work with all their hearts. This makes all the difference. Many a Christian work came to an end through divided hearts. We can also testify on the goodness of our Lord when we received a donation of 11 computers for the school from the University of Cape Town. Our computer room is now fully equipped and functional.
Beginning November we will host our Kwasizabantu Minister’s Conference in Wellington, Western Cape. Wellington was the town where the well-known Dr. Andrew Murray spent the last part of his life. Looking back on the remarkable work of revival and spiritual deepening that God worked through this man, it is the prayer of our hearts that this minister’s conference will again move people to a hunger for a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray for this important conference.
Directly after the minister’s conference we will, Lord willing, be leaving for an extensive mission outreach to the Northern Cape. We will mostly be addressing schools, children homes and youth groups. Some of the towns that we will be covering will be Pofadder, Pella, Aggeneys, Onseepkans, Augrabies, Kakamas, Keimoes, Andriesvale, Rietfontein, Mier and Askam. Please pray that the Lord will prepare the young people’s heart and that the seed of the Gospel will fall on fertile ground.
I am reminded of the words of our Lord Jesus in John 9:4:
I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.
Let us labor for our Lord while we still have opportunity. Let us not grow weary, but let us faithfully labor in His strength.
God’s richest blessings,
Gerhard le Roux
