Outreach to Bêre, Botswana
Rev Hendrik du Plessis and elder Fritz Lala : Reformed Church D’kar.
We made our camp just outside Bêre (which is some 178km from Dekar) as there are no camping facilities in the village. Nights were extremely cold and only a campfire could keep us warm.

This guy was outside Bêre looking for his horses when he passed our campsite. He came to greet which led to a deep spiritual conversation. He is married to a Naro lady and they have three children. Each has a Bible. He doesn’t belong to a church congregation because of a lack of proper churched in his village. We had a good conversation, in his language (Naro), where I explained the difference between a true and false church, the way to salvation and how to be saved through Jesus Christ.
*Nothing happens by accident, this meeting was predestined*
Fritz with David, the Kgosi of Bêre. He was elected to represent the government in the Bêre district.
He also doesn’t belong to a church or congregation but is keen to learn about Jesus Christ and the Bible. He wants to become a disciple of Christ to teach others the Gospel as well.
We asked him to find other people who are keen to be trained. We will start with training on our next visit. The study material will be ready by then.
*The idea is to train people to train others, the essence of discipleship*
Please keep David in your prayers. He is a known and respected man in his community and can be used as an important tool to carry out the Gospel,
We focus in our outreach on teaching the difference between true and false gospel. The lack of true knowledge of the Bible makes these people susceptible to the preaching of these so-called churches.
