Cuban Americans celebrate the death of Cuban leader Fidel Castro"And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the Judgment." Hebrews 9:27
 

Cuban Communists in Angola
On 12 September 1977, Cuban troops interrupted the service at Chilleso Evangelical Church in Angola. They desecrated the church with the heads of cattle and murdered Pastor Aurelio Saunje in front of his congregation. As the church members fled, they were shot in the back. About 150 were killed that day. The Cuban communists then roasted the meat of the cattle using church benches, the pulpit and hymn books as fire wood. They also burned down the church building. 

Angola's Agony
This was only one of many hundreds of atrocities committed by Cuban communist forces of Fidel Castro in Angola. Cubans burst into churches and forced congregation members to bow and worship before Soviet assault rifles. "From now on - god is this AK-47. The gun has power over life and death. So worship it!"  


Blasphemy and Torment
At one congregation they brought in a lamb, cut its head off and poured the blood over members of the congregation, smearing the blood on their faces. They dragged them out of their pews and forced them to their knees in front of the dead lamb. "Worship the lamb! The blood of the lamb sets you free!" the Cubans laughed. Then they taunted the believers: "You have committed idolatry! You are lost! Your souls will be condemned to hell with us for all eternity! You can never be saved now!"

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all…" 1 Chronicles 16:23-25 

Eurochor in Cape Town
We praise God for a most blessed, inspiring and empowering series of Reformation celebration events and outreaches in Cape Town. Making this year's Reformation celebrations absolutely unique was the arrival of the Eurochor. With over 140 members drawn from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania and Switzerland, this International Christian Youth Choir has thrilled audiences throughout the world with their multilingual, varied, colourful and captivating concerts.  

Guidance and Planning
It was at the Youth Conference at KwaSizabantu Mission, July this year that I learned of the possibility of the Eurochor visiting Cape Town. I immediately issued an invitation and our Mission moved into high gear in seeking out suitable venues. As we prayed for wisdom and guidance, it became immediately clear that the ideal venue for an open-air outreach at a public venue would be the Amphitheatre at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, preferably for a Saturday afternoon performance. There was no question that the ideal venue for Reformation Sunday service would be the Strand Street Lutheran church, not only is this the oldest Lutheran church in the Southern hemisphere, but it is also the oldest Protestant house of worship still in operation in Southern Africa. Archival records date back to the 1740s and the present building was constructed in 1771 and officially opened 1780.

Dear Friends

 

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

 

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…" Hosea 4:6

 

Fifth Mission in Five Months

By God's Grace I have safely returned from another Mission to America. This was my fifth mission in five months. With a whirlwind of writing deadlines, printing projects and outreaches, it seemed that I had barely unpacked from the Mission to Kenya then I was racing off to the airport again to fly all across to the West coast of America, to Seattle and from there to Idaho. I left Cape Town exhausted and being squeezed into middle seats on the long international legs of this journey, bumped and jostled from all sides ensured that I arrived even more tired and jet lagged.

Arrested in Sudan 2To view the PDF of this article as published in the Frontline Newsletter CLICK HERE

In Islamic Sudan, Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kodi and Rev. Kuwa Shemaal, activist Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, and a Czech pastor named Petr Jasek, have been charged with conspiring against the state, espionage & spreading false information.

These charges are punishable by death or life imprisonment. These people are persecuted for the Faith.

Their trial started Sunday 21 August 2016. Please mobilize prayer for their protection & release.

 

On 5 September, armed police and officials from the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) arrested the headmaster, Rev. Samuel Suliman, and 12 teachers of a Christian school in Madani, capital of Al Jazirah state, in south-eastern Sudan and took over its property. Police presented a letter from the National Ministry of Guidance and Endowments, addressed to the State Ministry of Social Welfare, ordering the handover of Evangelical Basic School to the government.

 

The school serves more than 1,000 students. Established by the American Mission in 1901, it belongs to the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church.

Harassment, arrests and persecution of Christians have intensified since 2011. The Sudanese Minister of Guidance and Endowments announced in April 2013 that no new licenses would be granted for building new churches in Sudan. Since 2012 Sudan has expelled foreign Christians and bulldozed church buildings.

 

“Remember the prisoners
as if chained with them
- those who are mistreated
- since you yourselves are
in the body also.” Hebrews 13:3
