His life-giving Word is the only resource that can break the spiritual bondages and boundaries we struggle with, in Africa.
I’ve just returned from a national pastor’s conference held in our capital, Pretoria.
Our ministry was asked by the national convenor to help with the supply and distribution of quality Christian literature, to help with socio-political theological understanding.
US authors Ron Kronz and Matt Trewhella kindly gave us permission to publish their book manuscripts in South Africa, as a blessing to the pastors at this strategic event.
Publishing, storage, and transportation of 1,000 copies each of, ‘Fighting to Win’ and ‘The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates’, was no easy task, and we are most thankful to all our ministry partners who helped cover the costs.
These titles disappeared off the book tables in record time! Pastors couldn’t believe the educational opportunity that had come their way. Only possible through our ‘Bibles, books, and bikes project’.
We are furthering the spread of Christian literature and devoting resources to projects that align with God's Word. His life-giving Word is the only resource that can break the spiritual bondages and boundaries we struggle with, in Africa.
Our project strives to empower others with the Bible and Christian literature, by going as far as to provide rural pastors with bikes so that they may be mobile in their ministry.
Our bikes serve as much more than a means of exercise; they enhance the Christian workers’ outreaches.
Evangelists with bikes are far more effective in reaching the lost that live a distance from the local church. They are now swifter in covering longer distances, and reaching people, rather than spending hours walking from one village to another.
On one occasion a church elder was so blessed by his bike that he aimed to pedal off immediately to reach out to a distant village that would take hours to travel to otherwise.

We can never have enough Bibles – we’ve distributed in South Africa, Zambia, Malawi, Congo, Cameroon, Gabon, and Zimbabwe. At one brand new church plant – a lady was typing up pages of Scripture for new converts. This is no longer necessary due to the supply of new Bibles, through our faithful ministry partners!
Currently, we have a list of seventy-two pastors, in South Africa alone, who need discipleship materials, and most importantly Bibles, for outreaches and December Gospel crusades.
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Please join us as we seek to bring God’s Word to those who desperately need to read and hear the Truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God! The minimum cost to land a Bible in a rural village is $21.
