About Abrie Marx
Abrie is married to Natalie. Together they minister worldwide with the Good News about Jesus Christ and they believe that the least distinguised carries Kingdom status - in Christ.
Abrie was ordained in 1991 as pastor of the Apostolic
Faith Mission of South Africa and has ministered as fulltime pastor in various
churches in South Africa. Since his calling to the fulltime ministry,
he has always had a heart and passion for World Evangelism and Missions.
Through this International ministry they are actively involved in God's Rescue Plan for the World and have ministered the Word of God in many countries around the world. They are obeying the Great Commission - to reach the unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to make disciples of all nations! (Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15).
They are also personally involved in mobilizing churches for missions, as well as planting churches in Swaziland.
“Our first priority is to complete the unfinished task of World Evangelism!”
The Kingdom of Swaziland is open to the gospel of Jesus Christ and the people are very receptive to the truth of the love of God. 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!

India is a land of contrast with 1.2 Billion precious people. This is India’s hour! She is ripe for the greatest mass movement to Christ.
Although religious persecution is accelerating the church in India is exploding in size.
Hindus make up the largest portion of the population. Over 350 million untouchables and other backward casts are growing weary of Brahmin oppression. They are ready to through of the yoke of bondage and to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Hindu 80.5%, Muslim 13.4%, Christian 2.3%, Sikh 1.9%, other 1.8%, unspecified 0.1%
Pray for the people of India!
Proclaiming the good news on top of the world!
Nepal is a Hindu Kingdom with a population of more than 29 million. Nepal has 332 People groups and 309 of them are unreached.
Hindu – 89%, Buddhist – 7%, Muslim – 3,4%, Christian – Only 0,6%
Nepal is one of the poorest nations
in the world, but provides an open door to reach the unreached
with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our primary focus must be where
the world’s least evangelized and poorest people can be found.
The Challenge is:
Evangelism and church planting.
This means digging into the remote villages getting to know the
people and sharing Christ until a church comes into being.
Declare his glory among the nations" Psalm 96:3
Your involvement can help us in the supreme task of the church – The Evangelization of the World.
Many Christians are being killed by the police and by the general fanatic Muslims for no reason at all. The Government of Pakistan is very much reluctant to take notice of the brutality being brought on the Christians. Islam is the official state religion and a way of life which is being enforced as the supreme law of the Land. All the laws are being modified and reframed according to the injunctions of the Quran, which is the holy book of Muslims.
Population: 177 million with 389 People Groups of which 374 are unreached Religions: Muslim 95% (Sunni 75%, Shia 20%), other (includes Christian and Hindu) 5%
Take note: It is estimated that by 2020 there will be 1.9 billion Muslims in the world, which will be about 25% of the world population.
During an outreach to Pakistan, David Clifton and I visited underground churches and orphanages and were impressed and encouraged by the rate at which the local churches are growing and the many conversions from Islam to Christianity.
Keep the people of Pakistan in your prayers.
Jesus said, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed." (Luke 4:18)
A golden opportunity!
Burma (Myanmar) is one of the poorest countries in the world with a population of more than 49 million people. Burma’s population includes dozens of different racial and ethnic groups. Although Burmese is the major and official language, more than a hundred local and regional dialects are spoken throughout Burma. There are a total of 142 People Groups of which 51 are unreached.
Buddhism is the national religion. Nearly 89% of the population is Buddhists with the remainder made up of Christians (5%), Muslims (4%) and other religions (2%).
According to the CIA – World Fact Book, Burma is a source country for men, women and children trafficked to East and Southeast Asia for sexual exploitation, domestic service and forced commercial labor. A significant number of victims are economic migrants who wind up in forced or bonded labor and forced prostitution. Internal trafficking of women and girls occurs from villages to urban centers and other areas. The military junta’s economic mismanagement, human rights abuses, and policy of using forced labor are driving factors behind Burma’s large trafficking problems.
God’s light must shine worldwide! God’s target through us is everyone. All people without Jesus Christ are lost. Therefore our goal is to shine the light of the gospel in every dark corner of the earth. God is committed to complete His plan in which we, as Christians are the “light of the world”. God will reward those who obey. Obedient Christians are essential to God’s plan.
John 4:35 – “Look around you, vast fields of human souls are ripening all around you and are ready now for reaping.”
