True Worship Christian Church: Madimbo Village, Venda, Limpopo
Pastor Lutendo & Mashuda Matshusa:
After exploring our website in 2014, Pastor Lutendo contacted and invited us to host a crusade at her church in Madimbo Village in Venda about 40 km’s from the Pafuri Gate of the Kruger National Park.
From the first day that we met her and her husband Mashuda, we immediately felt a connection that only the Spirit of God could bring about. We saw their immense vision to build a church in this remote rural area but also experienced their passion and love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and fellow children of God. Although they function as an autonomous church, they serve as full members of Galilee International Ministries (SA) and therefore Past Lutendo is currently registered as a fully ordained pastor of this Organization.
Their zeal to accomplish this vision and dream to build the church in this rural area, have compelled us to support their efforts by making this a priority project for 2015. Currently we are engaging with business men, sponsors and all children of God to support this project by donating the required building material or funding to complete this church as soon as possible. More information about this project will soon be available on the “Events-&-Projects” -page.
Galilee International Ministries Church: Hope Farm – Tshipise district, Limpopo
At the end of May 2013, we conducted our very first large scale outreach on Hope Farm in the rural area of the Tshipise District in the Limpopo Province.
This area is renowned for the export quality of citrus and other fruits and also has a brick manufacturing plant on the farm. Each year thousands of people from South Africa and neighbouring countries flock to this area in search of seasonal and full time work. The owner of the farm who is also associated with Doctors Without Borders, has opened a door for us to freely bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the people.
At the end of the outreach weekend 30 people were baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins and a new church was been born and planted on Hope Farm. A year later (2014) this figure now stands at 53 souls being added to the Kingdom of God with many more still to come. Past Phineas is leading the church here with the support of Br’s. Jefta, Tinashe and specific sisters in the group under the direct mentorship of our leadership team.
In the off-season period most people leave the farm and only return 6 months later, but the church has survived during these periods as the congregation is growing in the Spirit, wisdom from the Word as well as in numbers.
Currently we are training the new leadership of this congregation and supporting them with Bibles and other teaching material. We will host another outreach on the farm later in the year again. Great things for the Hope Farm Church is on the charts – watch this space!
Word of Power Ministries Ermelo, Mpumalanga
Pastor Sibongile Mdlalose
Pastor Sibongile was introduced to us by Pastor Toby Ngwenya who is also her spiritual father who taught her about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We met for the first time at the Easter conference we conducted in Middelburg and were pleasantly surprised with her humbleness and love but most of all with the power of the Holy Spirit in her. Although she is currently finishing her studies as a nurse, it is already her desire to start next year with her Bible College studies to learn more about the Word of God.
At the end of May 2015 we visited Ermelo and upon the teachings of Past Toby, 12 people were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ according to scripture in the book of Acts. We are so excited about this new congregation and foresee great things in the Lord Jesus Christ to happen in here .
We welcome the Word of Power Ministries from Ermelo into the home of Galilee International Ministries as a full member.
