2010 World Cup Outreach

Today was the kick-off of the 2010 World Cup here in Johannesburg and we headed out the door with some of the Playing2Win volunteers around 10 am to take the trip to Soccer City, the stadium where South Africa would face Mexico. Normally this would have taken us an hour or so, but today was one very special day! By 3:30 we were still in the thick of traffic--cars with flags, cars honking their horns, cars with drivers wearing huge clown hats and glasses and people dancing in the streets and flags flying everywhere. It was chaotic, loud and very happy!

Reaching the Fiji Islands

Richard Harland

Our small volunteer team has been coming to Fiji every year for five years now, reaching not only the Fiji islands, but also the surrounding island countries such as Vanuatu, Samoa and Tonga. During this time we’ve conducted numerous programs in schools, colleges and prisons, as well as carrying out some book distribution projects in poor village schools.

Christmas in South Africa - Part 5

Trip to rural area in Limpopo Province

19th and 20th of December

Total people served: 164 (40 mothers and 65 children, 2 crèches with a total of 59 children).

We took a three hour trip out of Johannesburg to Limpopo Province, to two small villages, the former home of a part-time volunteer. Though Abraham lives and works in Johannesburg now and is actively witnessing here, he regularly returns to visit not only his family but also other needy people in the communities there.

Christmas Party in Zakkariya Park

12th of December

Total people served: 128

We have been in touch with the members of an non-profit that does their best to help orphans, children from needy families and child-headed households in their community in Zakkariya Park,Vlakfontein. Zakkariya Park is a fairly new township about 30 km south of Johannesburg. We’ve been helping them with bi-weekly donations of bread throughout the past years and wanted to support them in their efforts by organizing an event for the children this Christmas.

Christmas in South Africa - Part 1

Joseph Bistachu

One of our goals for this year was to challenge and assist those that we have been teaching and working with over the past years to do something for others in their communities. To inspire and motivate our friends and members, at the beginning of the year, we held 3 one-day seminars on organizing and running volunteer projects. It was encouraging to see everyone’s enthusiasm. The events this Christmas were largely organized by our volunteers in response to this input and training.

Our 10,000 Kilometre Safari

Mike and Donna

After much preparation our three-man team set off overland from South Africa to Kenya and back. Our goal was to respond to a request from the rural areas around Eldoret Kenya to bring Bibles and Christian literature to those who had none, also with the intent of finding those to partner with in future.

Cervantino Festival 2009

Shelly Guild

Thank you for your interest and participation in our efforts to reach out and to spread God’s Word here in Mexico. We are happy to report that Project Descubrete, at the International Festival of Cervantino, October 2009, in Guanajuato, Mexico, was a success in every way. This is, in large part, thanks to your generous sponsorship of the printing of 30,000 flyers and over 18,000 tracts.

The program, which involved nearly 200 Christian volunteers, including students and fulltime missionaries, ran from October 27th to November 2nd.
