South Africa and Botswana Border: "Mission 3:16"

The DOVE churches in South Africa recently met with Peter Bunton, DMI director, to consider what God might do in missions in and from South Africa. Participating was Willien Marais, a missionary connected to Shiloh Community Church, Cape Town.

She has been called by God to begin and lead “Mission 3:16” in the area of Mahikeng, which is in the north west region of South Africa near the border with Botswana. Having previously been involved in outreaches to Zimbabwe, Willien has been praying for the region, helping with evangelistic meetings, assisting multiple churches in developing their ministries, networking, as well as serving in practical ways.

God has given her favor to acquire tribal land, which typically is impossible. She has begun to build on this site and envisages a gateway for intercession, a ministry center and also desires to establish a children’s home. To accomplish this vision Willien is drilling a borehole on the property to access water. Please pray for this strategic work in this region.

Zambia: Ministry to the Unreached

DOVE missionaries, Dan and Regina Bumstead are from the Hive, a DOVE church in Oregon, USA. God has led them to start a church among the Tokalea and Lozi peoples of southern Zambia. Arising from the severe poverty and spiritual strongholds of the region, many children are orphans or left with a village member who is unable to raise them.

Dan and Regina founded a children’s home on the banks of the Zambesi River to take care of a number of destitute children. They and their team of young Americans and Zambians are pleased to have installed two solar panels so that the compound may have electricity and are delighted with the recent provision of a refrigerator so that food can be stored for longer periods.

At the Well

DMA missionaries Nekesa* and her husband serve on a remote island in the Indian Ocean. After being away for maternity leave in 2008, Nekesa returned to the field with the hopes of continuing to disciple Keri*, a new Christian. But according to the neighbors, Keri had been chased away from home.

“We were devastated,” Nekesa reports, remembering her first encounter with this Muslim young lady. They met when Keri was drawing water at the village well. Nekesa was also there, and during the long wait, Nekesa invited her for a visit.
"Keri came to our home that evening, and I shared with her about Jesus," Nekesa explains. She made up her mind and accepted Jesus into her heart. Discipleship started immediately, but it was unfortunately short-lived because Nekesa was going on maternity leave.

But God continued to work. “Seven years later, came to visit relatives we were re-united," Nekesa reports. She greeted us with Bwana Asifiwe, a typical greeting among believers meaning ‘Praise the Lord.’ Immense joy filled our hearts. Keri was doing well and had kept her faith!"

After sometime, Keri got married, but did not have a child. "Gossip spread in the community that she was barren because of a curse—due to her conversion to Christianity. But we prayed for her. When we visited her last year, she was expecting a baby. That was quite a testimony to those who thought she was cursed. Now she is wife, mother, and a follower of Jesus. God's power is evident to all." It all started with a talk at the well.

The secret to life
May 17
Hudson Taylor, the famed missionary to China once said, “I used to ask God to help me. Then I asked if I might help Him. I ended up by asking God to do His work though me.” Hudson had found the secret to life; recognizing that when he invited Christ into his life, Jesus Christ...
