From Deon Snyders, coworker of GRN Southern Africa in Botswana, Namibia and Venda
When planning an outreach, there are always questions: "How will the people respond?" "Will they accept the gospel?" (Having, for so long, worshipped forefather spirits and water spirits.) "Will we get permission from the local chiefs?" "Who will help to do the follow up after we left?"
And then we send out a prayer letter and ask for prayers and as the prayers go up before the Lord, it is as if everything just falls into place and the people are receptive to the Gospel in spite of years of ancestral spirit believe.
Then there are people that are dedicated to do the follow up among these people groups and help them to grow in Christ. Many times, I lack of enough Bibles, audio-visual materials and players, but then God miraculously provides through organisations like GRN, the Bible Society, Megavoice, Kivah and All Nations Gospel Publishers.
We are thankful for your materials.

Support for Deon's Work
If you feel to support Deon's project in corporation with Global Recordings Network, this will help to enable us to sponsor or subsidise more audio-visual Bible-based materials to help people to stay on the new path they have chosen, or to find that Way if they haven't yet.
These are especially helpful in non-reading communities in Botswana and Venda.
