This month Justin and 2 other men from our team had the opportunity to go on a mini-outreach to the Eastern Cape for 2 weeks. We live in Cape Town which is in the Western Cape but many of the people we work with were born in the Eastern Cape and have family there. This trip was with the hope to see more of South Africa and understand where many of our friends come from, as well as to establish more relationships for future outreach teams.
During their 2 weeks they taught the books of Ephesians and Colossians with a focus on “Identity in Christ”. In addition Justin taught on the topic of Grace and preached on Sunday mornings. After his teaching on Grace a woman came to him and thanked him for his message. She explained that she never understood “The whole Jesus thing” and what He had to do with salvation. But because of Justin’s teaching she understood what He had done for her and felt confident to share the message of Grace and Salvation with others! Sometimes it’s the “simple” and “basic” messages that have the most impact.
