Christian Outreach

Helping Hand
Cape Town, South Africa

Each day our volunteers go out to share the Good News with those from all walks of life brings new tests as well as triumphs. During 2007 we distributed over 120,000 tracts and nearly 9,000 Activated magazines. We personally shared the Gospel with over 126,000 people, 808 of whom received Jesus as their personal Saviour. We’ve received many wonderful reactions to our outreach and Bible Studies. Here is a sample of some of them:

  • I received the CD I Like to Dance today. Two things I wanted to say: Thank you so much for sending the CD to me, your love of me (a stranger) is so great a testimony to the love of God through you ... and thank you for bringing a smile to my face and a warm glow in my heart to know that people can be beautiful in God’s holy light.

  • Thank you for giving me the opportunity to include me in your emails. I would be honoured to do the Bible study correspondence. I know I am where the Lord wants me to be, and this can help me to learn and grow and also able to share the Word with other Christians—spreading the Gospel. I am really happy about this and can't wait to start.

  • Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful message I received this morning. It answered a question I've been asking for so long. Divine Revelation!! It really inspired me and motivated me to draw closer to God and it also made me realize that I can do nothing in my own strength and I’ll only be effective if I abide in him and reflect His love. Truly amazing. This might sound insignificant to you, but it means the world to me. Please pray for me. Pray that God’s plan for my life would be fulfilled and that He would anoint me so that I would be effective in doing what He’s purposed for my life. Thank you again and God Bless!!!

  • I am sincerely thankful for your time and effort, indeed a helping hand. I am learning to trust more and not let my own understanding of things get in the way, 'cause what I know or what I think I know is not always right. I have come to the understanding that what I want and what God wants for me may not always be the same thing. I am sure that God’s eye is on you and I feel blessed to have met you. Keep up the Good work for we need more people like you.

  • I must inform you that I have been receiving my Activated booklet. It has proven to be a very good investment and I can't wait for the next issue! God has really spoken through you in the past, and now He speaks through a simple magazine ...and not forgetting His Holy Word. The last issue has really given me a better understanding of what a friend Jesus is and wants to be in my life. Within every day awaits a new challenge and He is so ready to just be there and support me.
