Meet His Love Church in Kimberley, South Africa – a young church plant and small (for now) group of passionate believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Their passion is to bring the scripture of 1 John 4:12 to life.
“No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.”
His Love Church started partnering with Four12 in the middle of 2016 and has since this time welcomed various visits from Four12 Partnering leaders and ministering teams. Lead Elder’s wife, Almarie Strydom shared some of the most recent highlights for them as a church with us:
Rowland and Patti Barnard (Joshua Generation Church) visited during the end of October and ministered powerfully amongst us. Rowland encouraged us all as a church, but especially our ‘Afrikaans guys’ with a prophetic encouragement in seeing us a church minister into Namibia in the future. They as a couple spent quality time with our saints and just loved them, a great deposit was made.
A little while later we had a visit from Melanie du Toit (a prophetic gift in Four12) and an eldership couple from Cape Town, Jody and Candice Martin.
His Love will be having an outreach to Lesotho on the 4th- 6th of December 2016, you are all welcome to contact them and join in the adventure.
Melanie was like a wind of joy and fun throughout the church. She spent time with most of our saints and spent a night prophesying amazing, and accurate words over them all. This brought a new direction, love and excitement to us all.To have the ‘gift’ of art used within the ministry time was very successful, and we had about 40 people attending the session and also the follow day’s workshop. As a result of this time a lady Luaan prayed for after Melanie had ministered to her, has not have taken pain medication since that day.
Jody and Candice already knew a lot of people in Kimberley (they have family living here) and enthusiastically invited a great number of people to join us over their visiting time, we loved having them with us. It was such an encouragement to hear all the church planting stories from Melanie, our small flock was able to relate very well to the stories and found great courage in her sharing them with us.
His Love will be leading an outreach into Lesotho on the 4th- 6th of December 2016, you are all welcome to contact them and join in the adventure. This will be a real ‘outreach into nature’ with camping and no facilities available, they will be seeking out the unreached people there.
Keep praying for this young church plant, and for Luaan and Almarie Strydom. We thank God for adding to Kimberley a group of believers that are seeking His Kingdom first, and are excited to be partnering with them!
