It is one of South Africa’s many remote rural areas. It is here where you will find Miss Dolly and Miss Adelaide, likely sitting beneath the welcome shade of a bended tree. They are Philips (Project Philip Bible study leaders) who have taken what they’ve learned through Church Planter Training and started a church here in this isolated farming community.
“We were already visiting Buhrmansdrif before we enrolled in Church Planter Training,” says Miss Dolly. “Life in this nook of the countryside doesn’t have much to offer. But we knew when we completed Project Philip Bible studies, we wanted to bring the Word of God here.”
The women lead the people in worship through song, in the familiar African style. Every participant immediately joins in, harmonizing and humming. The ladies ask everyone to sit down, and they begin engaging people in God’s Word using Project Philip Bible study booklets in the Setswana language. Their way of communicating God’s Word is both captivating and convincing, and the attendants nod their heads emphatically.
“We thank God that Project Philip Bible studies are reaching the people,” they say. “Seeds are planted, and nobody can steal them.” The ladies thank you for your support, and report that “the members come every Sunday, because they are longing to deepen their knowledge of the Lord and His Word!”
