The Kingdom of Eswatini (Swaziland) is open to the gospel of Jesus Christ and the people are very receptive to the truth of God's Word. This country provides a wonderful opportunity for the Christian message to take root and for the love of God to be poured out in many hearts.
Prayer is the answer
Keep on praying with us for a mighty breakthrough of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of the people. There is opposition, but prayer is the answer. Although many born again believers are strong in their faith, there are many people in their communities living in bondage of tradition and African religion. Many unsaved people are bound by traditional ancestral worship and by consulting witch doctors and traditional healers.
Traditional healers are regarded as physicians, prophets, priests, diviners and herbalists, and about 80% of the people who are not born again believers consult these practitioners, who are mostly male. The “inyanga” as they are known, inherit their skills from their fathers and grandfathers and they hold a senior place in society. The function of divination involves throwing bones and interpreting the patterns in which they fall.
The “sangoma” is a traditional diviner who has been called to the profession. Generally women, they are consulted to alleviate physical and mental problems, attend various ceremonies and act as counselors. When divining, the sangoma traditionally relies on spirit possession.
We have to keep on praying for the breaking down of demonic strongholds. Nothing is impossible with God and He is doing great and wonderful things. The gospel has to penetrate every community and village in remote Swaziland. That is the vision and what we are working for. Presently we are working in Mhlosheni and Emayiwane. It is indeed a wonderful privilege to be part of what God is doing in this mountainous country.
Thank you for caring!
Your sponsorship makes it possible to care for orphans and widows in rural and remote Swaziland. Each month your giving provides food, shelter and clothing. But more than that, we also help to educate them with the Word of God and teaching them the truth about salvation in Jesus Christ.
Remember, God uses people just like you! He works through you and me to reach out to those in need, to change lives, heal the sick and hurting, and to care for orphans and widows.
Stand with us and watch what God will do in your life!
