From Deon Snyders, coworker of GRN Southern Africa in Botswana and Venda

When planning an outreach, there are always questions like; "How will the people respond?" or "Will they accept the gospel?" (having, for so long, worshiped for father spirits and water spirits) or "Will we get permission from the local chiefs?" or "Who will help to do the follow up after we left?". Always these humanly asked questions. And then we send out a prayer letter and ask for prayers and as the prayers go up before the Lord, it is if everything just falls in 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 to these people groups and help them to grow in Christ. Many times I lack of enough Bibles, audiovisual materials and players, but then God miraculously provides through organizations like Good News Media, distributor of Global Recordings Network evangelism tools in South Africa, the Bible Society, Megavoice, Davar Africa and All Nations Gospel Publishers.
