The first prophetic word I recieved in SA was that I would use my video camera to spread God’s glory. So here are some of the glorious stuff i filmed down there:
Mama Tesia Nicole, South Africa’s version of Heidi Baker, asked me to do a video for them about Village of Hope, their community center in Backdoor which works to improve people’s lives and spread the Gospel of hope. In Backdoor, the unemployment rate is around 80 %, the HIV rate is extremely high and only one third of the youth finish high school. To tackle these problems, Village of Hope includes a pre-school, a feeding programme, a youth center and more.
In this video, Pastor Surprise Sithole shares two testimonies in Iris Revival Church, Nelspruit South Africa: Firstly, a church member has been healed from cancer; secondly, Surprise’s wife Tryphina and their son Enoch saw a castle in the sky. The castle was levitating in the air. Both of them saw it clearly. Suddenly the castle was covered by clouds, and when they disappeared the castle was gone. “What do you think it means?” some one asks Surprise. “Well, a castle belongs to a King.”
Every day, Iris Ministries hand out free food to people in the poor Backdoor community outside White River. I got the oppurtunity to preach to all the children that come there to get food. I talked about that God doesn’t want some to be rich while others are poor, and I told them about a church in the UK called Jesus Army that practice this equality just as in Acts 2:44-45.
Finally, here’s a sermon I held in a tent church in Clau-Clau. All Christians are called to serve each other, and this is why God is giving us the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that even if we lack resources we can serve with the gifts. I share about how money appeared from thin air to my friend Elijah so that he could take the bus to lead a man to Christ, and how pastor Surprise Sithole have preached in languages he has never studied but that the Holy Spirit has given him. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have – God wants to use you!
