“I was once young, and now I am old, but not once have I been witness to God’s failure to supply my need when I had first given for the furtherance of His work. He has never failed in His promise, so I cannot fail in my service to Him.” William Carey1761-1834; British missionary to India Everything God gives us has two purposes: seed to … Continue reading seed for sowing
I never thought that when I started ministering to a tribe with no knowledge of Jesus Christ or Christian theology, my own understanding of the gospel would be so deepened. There’s no need in ministry here to dig and strive for a new concept to teach every few days, as even the most basic concepts are brand new. Even recently, when I made the statement, … Continue reading the simple Gospel
I’m praying for the Nations of Africa today.Northern Africa and the Middle East has been at the center of persecution for many years, and yet, many new believers turn to Christ as Lord and Saviour. one of the largest threats to the Western Church is lukewarm faith. persecution is one of the best things that can happen to a family of believers. the harvest is plenty, … Continue reading not abandoned
“The world asks, ‘what does a man own?’ Christ asks, ‘how does he do it?’” Andrew Murray1828 – 1917South African pastor and author When Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt, they left with all the wealth of Egypt and disappeared into the desert with it. Why did God place a great wealth into the hands of a people who would have nowhere to spend … Continue reading the purpose of wealth
“We must be global Christians with a global vision, because our God is a global God.” – John Scott, 1921British Pastor and Evangelical leader Recognizing God’s appeal in this vision, Paul’s ministry took a drastic turn and he went to Macedonia. Vision turns us toward the purposes of God, and for some, this heavenly touch will activate us into reaching the nations. Vision is defined … Continue reading vision for the harvest
With only four more days to go (the countdown is set to midnight!) before I leave for Zambia, I am INCREDIBLY excited for all that lies ahead! You may not know me long enough to know the journey that God put me on to get me here: to this day, in this place, but it’s been a journey of more than 10 years! This morning … Continue reading thank you for keeping my arms up!
I promise — I do more than run around and take unstable videos of things. This is a summary of yesterday’s jaunt.The mud was kindly supplied by hurricane Kenneth. For the past few days, we’ve had the loveliest showers and I’m so excited to see rivers and dams filling up. South Africa has been suffering under extended drought for the past 4 years, and as … Continue reading kenneth
Isn’t it true that we sometimes go through seasons where things seem to be dreary and stale, where nothing seems to move forward and where breakthrough seems like a desert mirage? Distant and unattainable.
There are some specific things that I’ve been praying about for some time, and the Lord’s response is simply this: SHAMMAH. THE LORD IS HERE. HE HEARS.
A good friend recently shared this nugget of wisdom with me:“If Sarah had a son at 30, it would’ve been normal. If she had a son at 50, people would’ve thought it’s great and look how well she takes care of herself! But she had a son at 99, and the only One to receive glory from that is God.”
There are SO MANY examples from Scripture where people sought the Lord, crying out to Him.
There are AS MANY examples from Scripture where God answers prayer.
Sin came into the world in the garden of Eden, when Adam failed to see that he was already like God, created in His image. The price for Salvation was claimed in the garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus willingly offered himself as Sacrifice in our stead so that Identity could be restored, reconciling us as Sons to the Father. Continue reading it is finished
I refuse to be ashamed of sharing the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved—the Jew first, and then people everywhere! Romans 1:16 I took this picture on April 4th 2018 in Mpatamatu, central Zambia. We were on our way back to town after ministering in the villages. We … Continue reading for all men
In Luke 10:2, Jesus tells us that the harvest is ready, but that there are not enough labourers to bring in this mighty harvest. He also says we should pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out more labourers into the fields! Continue reading pray for the harvest
compassion calls you out of the boat, beyond your self-imposed limitations, beyond your comfort zone, into the uncharted waters where the glory of God dwells. Continue reading a heart of compassion
A year ago today, I headed to Zambia for the first time! In 40 days I’ll be back! Continue reading 40 days
Isn’t it wonderful that He keeps drawing us closer, inviting us to live face-to-face with Him, to breathe His life through the Spirit and to share in worship through fellowship?
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
When we have nothing else to fall back on, except God, it often forces us to dig deeper into Him; to hold on to the Promise Maker, and not only His promises. Continue reading go fish
So, this is what loadshedding is really about — to do the things we’re made to do, to run the race with determination, to live free from the burden of sin, to step out in faith, to take on the Great Unknown. Continue reading loadshedding
[Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it–a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil, [Lev. 16:2.] ~ Hebrews 6:19
On October 1st, I had a dream in which I was dancing. There was no music, but I danced the message of the Gospel. I had no idea that people were gathering, watching. I simply danced because I had to. Continue reading Lord of the Dance

As a kid who grew up in the lush green that the Northern Drakensberg had to offer, I’ve always imagined Psalm 23 to resemble the rolling foothills of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
However, upon visiting Israel in October 2018, I came to know the bitter truth — the green pastures David spoke of look nothing like the paradise of my childhood.
The reality of the Psalm 23 in which David’s praise-song was set, was rugged and harsh desert landscape, just outside of Palestine. Continue reading the Good Shepherd
Stepping out in faith is not knowing that Peter walked on water. Faith is getting out of your own boat, whether you’re wearing a life jacket or not, and whether you’re knee deep in the water and surrounded by a storm or not, to still trust that God has plan for your life; knowing Holy Spirit will guide you; knowing Jesus will reach out to catch you; knowing Father will embrace you; and doing the impossible because God is a God of wonders.

1 John 4:18 says that perfect love banishes the existence of fear. In other words, when we know and understand the love of God the Father, the Personification of Love who gave his Son to us as a gift of love, we come to experience the safety and protection that exists within love. Continue reading there is no fear in love
During the summer holiday of 2018, I visited Liezl and Arthur at their home in Livingstone, Zambia. I met this lovely family in 2016, when they were visiting my home church in South Africa.
I remember being excited by the way they spoke about Kingdom and ministry and travel, and we kept in touch.
It was during this visit to Zambia, my second trip to Zambia with in a year, that God started speaking to me about strategic relationships. Continue reading Rapid 14
