Here is a story about a pickpocket convicted by the Holy Spirit. In Mb* a SOWERS sketch board was strategically pitched near a busy marketplace where people frequently purchase various goods. It is a place where you see everyone minding his or her business, like ants carrying stuff into their holes. Suddenly a loud voice echoed unexpectedly into the ears of people. Some stopped walking, some turned their heads in the direction of the sound with frowning faces expressing their displeasure, while some interested faces were ready to listen to the new announcement. Eventually a large crowd was drawn to the meeting. The powerful message of repentance was preached and seven people responded to the invitation to surrender their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Among the seven, a man confessed during counseling time that he had come to the meeting for the wrong reason. He had an ulterior motive to steal. He was a pickpocket thief but after listening to the good news, he was ready to change his ways. Edmond
How a truck pulled a crowd: A seven tonne truck, with a sketchboard mounted on a trailer, was strategically parked at Munyuki shopping centre in Epworth, Harare. A man with paint and a brush appeared and started drawing. Soon, inquisitive, baffled minds could not resist it and within a few minutes a crowd of investigators was drawn to the meeting. Our level 3 Evangelist Zhak* hit the nail on the head, preaching Christ, the love of God and repentance. By the time he extended the invitation, the majority had been pricked to the heart. Convicted by the Holy Spirit, some could be seen sobbing and wiping away tears. 20 souls gave their lives to Christ. Edmond
In Rusape during our door-to-door evangelism we witnessed to a young man who was very hopeless. He does not know his father so he was dejected because he tried in vain to look for him. However, we introduced him to a heavenly Father who neither vanishes or dies. He accepted Jesus Christ. The young man was so happy and encouraged. Felix and his young wife are now a very happy family. Edmond
I was very much encouraged with Sowers team leaders that they were able to answer the questions correctly. The enthusiasm they are showing about soul winning is quite amazing. They rearing to go. They are just wishing this pandemic to come to an end. I was also encouraged with news from Epworth about our Level 3 Sower Pastor Zh*. In spite of the epidemic, he and his team managed to do one on one evangelism using the counselling booklets and four people come to Christ, with three baptized. Edmond
How our late Missionary Christine Sexton has impacted your life, ministry or church?
"Kingdom service is always punctuated with challenges and hardships but the ultimate is to have grace to live a fulfilled life. I saw the fulfilment in Christine each time l watched her serve God in our nation. I saw a dedicated woman who was very committed to her mission. Over the years she demonstrated a motherly love as she dealt with us in seminar meetings. I saw her working as a coworker to her husband in such an admirable way. My wife learnt serving as a team from Christine as she worked side by side with her husband. She indeed made a lasting impression on my ministry as she impacted the lives of many ladies who were at SOWERS' seminars. She fought a good fight, she finished her race, kept the faith. What awaits her is a crown of righteousness." Apostle Lifa C* of Deeper Harvest Ministries International.
"We have lost a dedicated Missionary who was designed to make and put Africa on an equal level with other races as far as the Gospel of our Lord Jesus is concerned. Christine knew her purpose and carried her divine assignment whole heartedly, compassionately. We shall ever continue celebrating her life." Delight B*
