Last July, we held a weekend training session for local pastors to learn how to use our new Jesus Film equipment. Five (5) pastors and five (5) volunteers / staff were trained and at the end of the training weekend, we had the opportunity to show the Jesus Film in the community of Nkanini, Khayelitsha. Pastor Peter Makute was one of the pastors who attended the training that weekend. He pastors a church in Nkanini – God is Able International Church Ministries – whom we have partnered with to show multiple Jesus Film showings.
Over the past year, Pastor Makute has taken several trips to the Eastern Cape to show the Jesus Film in the rural areas of Ngcobo and God has been working! After showing the Jesus Film to over 600 school children and hundreds of adults, a new church has been planted and over 40 new Christians have been baptized to show that they are now followers of Jesus Christ! “The people are hungry for the gospel,” says Pastor Makute, “so we must go back and help them.” He is planning another trip to the Eastern Cape in September and hopes to show the Magdalena in more places in the Eastern Cape as well.
Praise God for true multiplication!!
