Testimonies from the field: Southern Africa

Prayer for World Outreach’s field personnel is vital! Especially during COVID-19. We have received these beautiful encouragements from our faithful frontline workers in Southern Africa. We pray they may encourage you too!

Please consider our projects for Displaced People Groups! Thousands of people around the world are displaced, and at World Outreach we are passionate about reaching these people. These funds will be used to purchase food, medicines and other basic necessities to help people struggling to get by.

Migrant Outreach

The migrant worker outreach has virtually exploded over the past couple of months, with the original CPM multiplying three times after the apparent disaster of the total eviction of the community.

Out of this “disaster” of the diaspora we are now deeply involved in the process of “starting again,” but this time in three communities instead of only one. Our relationship with the local church has also risen to dramatic new heights with complete buy-in. Finances, personnel and resources are flooding in and we feel as if we are surfers, standing on the crest of a tidal wave, being thrust forward and all we need to do is just retain our balance on the board and try not to fall off.

Ms S is the mother of a 4-year-old with cerebral palsy who has been coming to our therapy centre for a while. She is from a very poor background, and her husband had left her. She was very depressed for a while and not taking good care of herself or her son.

Our staff have been praying and reaching out to her and were able to visit her home and share the gospel with her. She has accepted Jesus and we see a great change in her. Her life is still very tough, but we see her new-found joy and peace. Please pray that Ms S will continue to grow in her faith and for God’s blessing and provision for them.

It is no small thing for a person from an Orthodox background to come to faith in Jesus, and often there is strong resistance from family and friends.”

Praise the Lord for the amazing work happening all over the world!

We pray you will be encouraged by these stories! Will you join us in praying for those facing trials around the globe?
