2prayReflect on Isaiah 65:24 as you pray for South Africa!

Thank you for praying and trusting with CCC South Africa.

Praise items:

  1. We praise the Lord for the privilege of having a lower lockdown level which makes ministry possible in face to face meetings and church services are fully operational again. God is faithful in the journey for such a time as this.
  2. We thank the Lord for CCC South Africa being able to attain a new debt free status! CCC SA ministry had internal debt that we were able to restore to healthy balance again, after taking good action and trusting the Lord in it. God is so gracious, we praise Him!!
  3. We praise the Lord for His presence taking us through challenging times in 2021. He has blessed our ministry plans and efforts and we see fruit in the midst of covid-19 regulations and the new normal.

Prayer Requests:

  1. Just two weeks ago we suffered the loss of our national financial office manager, our brother, Das Naidoo. He passed away at the age of 41, due to covid pneumonia. This is a huge shock for our national Team Leader, Chris Dirks, our national staff, head office staff, and in particular our finance team, who worked closely with Das. Pray for comfort, Holy Spirit to restore every heart.
  2. We are busy with all MCC’S planning for coming July 2022 until June 2023. Pray for our team leaders to lead well in bringing their teams together in searching the will of our Lord Jesus, in every part of planning.

Pray for wisdom, insight and knowledge from the Lord, to impart in every staff member, that which will bring growth and fruitfulness to CCC SA, expanding the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. Please continue praying for all the leadership gaps that needs to be filled in our national team. Pray the Lord of the harvest to send the labourers to bring in the harvest that is plentiful. Please pray 2 Tim.2:2
  2. Pray for our team who is currently preparing for CCC SA’s 50th celebration year in 2022. Pray for ownership and involvement from all our staff and volunteers. Pray for the social media team, support in manpower. The research team to record the testimonies which will glorify the Lord for His faithfulness through the past 50 years in South Africa.
  3. Pray for South Africa, on the 1st of November our nation will have election day. Pray for the Body of Christ to arise and follow Jesus, with no reservations. To be unashamedly ethical in the way we cast our votes. Pray against corruption and the schemes of the evil one. Pray for fair and just procedures on the day of voting.

May the Lord continue to build in us, His Kingdom of righteousness while serving with CCC SA. The Lord bless you!

  • Freedom of religion. A strong push to give all religions equal say has given high profile to the ethnic African religions, Islam, Hinduism, humanism and the interfaith movement at the expense of Christianity.
  • The continuing expanding mission involvement and global vision of South Africans are encouraging. Innovative strategies for sending and supporting are underway and work is growing from among all races and denominational types.  Most evangelical congregations have some involvement in mission work in other countries, especially in central and southern Africa
