    Now this I like to hear...

    During the Reclaiming Africa for Christ Biblical Worldview Summit, the Deputy Director of Frontline Fellowship, Charl van Wyk, and Creation Science lecturer Philip Stott, were held up in an attempted hijacking at Khayelitsha while en-route to record a radio programme.

    While two thugs pointed their automatic pistols at Uncle Philip threatening and manhandling him, Charl drew his pistol and opened fire, sending the assailants scurrying for cover.

    Charl then came under fire from a third assailant who was concealed by the side of the road. By God’s grace, our speakers and vehicle escaped the attempted hijacking and ambush unharmed. Our people have laid charges of attempted murder, hijacking and robbery with the local police. We praise the Lord for His protection, that no lives were lost.

    However, a number of foreign passports and identity documents of participants of the Great Commission Course were stolen by the attackers. This has caused much extra expense and time wasting disruption as each of the participants whose passports were stolen need to make application for emergency travel documents, travelling to their embassies, some of which are only in Pretoria (1,400 kilometres away), necessitating changes of flights, extra expenses and other complications.

    Please join us in praying that the Lord would work all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. That this, which man meant for evil, God will use for good. Let us continue to pray that the Lord would bring those responsible for this attack to justice, to conviction of sin and to full Repentance.

    I discovered this week that an average of 90 whites are murdered in cold blood every day in South Africa by blacks - it is white genocide and not reported in the press. :tear: Missionaries have been murdered, too.
